Workshops for children
Going to a museum can be fun! Children and young persons can get an idea of the city’s history with the help of different projects. Work with children is done in a practical way – depending on the respective subject in various artistic and handicraft techniques -, in order to make a visit to the Stadtmuseum as interesting as possible.

The subject of the StadtMuseum Bonn, which was opened in 1998, is the presentation of Bonn’s city history and the care of its wide range of exhibits. In its 18 rooms the museum shows its permanent exhibition of the history of the city of Bonn. It has an extraordinary and manifold collection with a special emphasis on the period of the 18th to the 20th century.
At the StadtMuseum Bonn you can get familiar with the history of the city of Bonn, which has experienced many meaningful epochs. Before its era as the federal capital, it had been the capital and residential city of the electors of Cologne for more than 300 years. Nowadays, it faces new targets and perspectives. Its location in front of the panorama of the famous Siebengebirge has always contributed to its status and has attracted numerous travellers in the past decades and still today.
The Ernst-Moritz-Arndt Haus at the Adenauerallee 79 is the dependency of the StadtMuseum, which, however, is only opened for special exhibitions. In summer, there are literary events at the Rhine terrace on a regular basis here.
