Stadtmuseum Bonn

The Stadtmuseum Bonn was founded in 1998. The mission of this museum is to portray the urban history of Bonn and to present and maintain it's large inventory. In the last couple of years the Stadtmuseum was able to achieve nationwide a good reputation with special exhibitions in the Ernst-Moritz-Arndt-Haus.

Reopening under conditions

The Stadtmuseum Bonn will reopen to the public on Wednesday, September 1, 2021. The museum at Franziskanerstraße 9 welcomes its guests with new opening hours - Wednesdays to Sundays from 12 noon to 6 pm.

Entering the museum is only allowed with at least one medical mask. Masks are mandatory throughout the building. A time slot does not need to be booked. Likewise, no 3G proof (recovered, vaccinated, tested) is currently required.

Due to the fact that the history of establishment was quite changeful, the Stadtmuseum (located at Franziskanerstraße) is now carrying a very heterogeneous stock. It is specially abounded in the rich inventory ranging from the 18th until the 20th century.

Since 1989 the Stadtmuseum Bonn is supported by trusts, legacies, donations and benefits. For further information and general enquiries please contact us via mail at  stadtmuseumbonnde or call us on +49 228 772094.

Guided tours / lectures

A team of voluntarily working staff members is regularly giving guided tours through the permanent exhibition and the special exhibitions in Franziskanerstraße and at the Ernst-Moritz-Arndt-Haus.
