From Neanderthal Man to the Present Time Travel across 400,000 Years Cultural History in the Rhineland

Due to its superb collection as the only museum of cultural history in the Rhineland, the LVR-LandesMuseum shows the development of the region from its beginnings to the present day.

In the permanent exhibition, the visitor is greeted with an eventful journey through time, from the Stone Age up to today. Not only is the world-famous original Neanderthal man (40,000 years B.C.) on display here, but also the world's largest Neolithic well.

Further highlights are the Fritzdorf gold beaker from the Bronze Age, the Pfalzfeld Column dating from Celtic times, and a treasure that had once belonged to a Celtic princess from Waldalgesheim.

Roman times may be discovered in one of the best Roman provincial collections in all of Germany. Highlights from Frankish times are the splendid grave of the Lord von Morken and what is most likely the best collection of Frankish gold disc fibulae clasps in all of Europe.

A zenith in art of the 12th century, the Romanesque sculpture frieze from Gustorf brings us into Christian Europe. Landscape painting from the Renaissance to well into the 19th century is a further emphasis in the collection. Modern painting from Expressionism and the New Objectivity, by way of Informel, and up to recent contemporary art round out what all the museum has to offer.

The important Photograph Collection and Department of Prints and Drawings are introduced with ever new thematic emphases. The LVR-LandesMuseum presents its important holdings with seven thematic tours ranging from the Stone Age to the Present Day.


The LVR-Landesmuseum Bonn has been conducting provenance research since the mid-1990s - which is to say that the Landesmuseum deals with its past during the Nazi period intensively and pro-actively. Provenance research means researching the precise origins of the collection in order to be able to determine without a doubt whether there are objects in the collection which had formerly been in Jewish possession. In a first step, the origins of those paintings are being researched which had been purchased between 1933 and 1945. Thus, at a period when the LandesMuseum's budget for purchases had been raised considerably, above all for acquisitions in the occupied territories of France, the Netherlands, and Belgium. Purchases after 1945 are coming more and more under scrutiny, since for this time, unchecked, incriminating, and problematic origins may lie hidden here as well. The extensive research is entered in the museum's own, constantly expanding database.
