Mu­seums in North Rhine-West­phalia

The most pop­u­lar mu­seums in a re­gion of cul­ture

There are over 900 mu­seums in NRW, each one of­fer­ing something dif­fer­ent for im­pressed vis­it­ors. The choice in­cludes world-class art mu­seums, open-air mu­seums, in­dus­tri­al mu­seums and mu­seums con­ceived es­pe­cially for chil­dren. Vis­it­ors can step back in time to re­live the Ro­man past or zoom in­to the fu­ture to ex­plore the fas­cin­at­ing world of cut­ting-edge sci­ence. A vis­it to a mu­seum in North Rhine-West­phalia is any­thing but bor­ing!
