Treasures from the past in Düsseldorf tend to remain hidden, the efforts made by a few indivuals over the centuries a mystery. The best place to discover more is the Stadtmuseum.
For instance, that Düsseldorf was first mentioned in 1150, named a town in 1288. Facts such as the church’s high influence and massive Roman activity in nearby Neuss helped make the state capital what it is today.
With its unique collection, the oldest museum in Dusseldorf reveals the history, culture and arts of the city of Dusseldorf and the region. Themes include the 14th to 16th century, the industrialisation and cultural history during the 19th century, the local art scene during the Weimar Republic, National Socialism and the post-war period.
The collection is ordered in a chronological structure offering a very clear overview. Temporary themed exhibitions are a joy to experience.
The café offers a cosy place to partake of refreshments.
