Our new guide helps English-speaking visitors to explore three exhibitions: “Bonn the Former Capital”, “Roman Life in Bonn” and the current temporary exhibition “A Love-Need-Hate Relationship. The Germans and their Cars”.
From March to mid-December 2017 our museum's glass roof will undergo modernization. The permanent exhibition will be closed during that time – but the museum remains open and offers an appealing programme of events.
We offer an exclusive tour through our storerooms. It is here that we preserve our collections. Find out all about this hidden world!
On Saturdays at 1 p.m. and at 2 p.m. there are public guided visits of the Chancellor’s study with original furniture used by Federal Chancellor Helmut Schmidt.
The new exhibition with selected historical items and interactive media stations places the chamber clearly in the limelight – as a place where the Basic Law was deliberated on, signed into law and declared enacted.
Why not book a guided visit for the permanent exhibition, the current temporary exhibition, or the historical sites in Bonn? Simply contact our Visitor Services for details.
We offer group guided visits in Arabic, Dutch, English, French, Italian, Polish, Russian, Spanish and Turkish. Find out the details from our Visitor Services.
The Haus der Geschichte Foundation collects objects that document contemporary history – and exhibits them. These include everyday items, documents, films and other media, magazines, machines, furniture, textiles, and much more besides.
In the former government district you can find out about where and how political decision-making unfolded in Bonn at the original historical sites. We invite you to discover the Chancellor’s Bungalow, the Bundesrat, Palais Schaumburg and the “Path of Democracy”.
