  • Despite a museography that will delight the children, the centre's collection is quite thin, and many exhibits are copies. Furthermore, if you do not speak German (which is, unfortunately, my case), some comments you are not accessible. On the other hand, small video animations can be followed in french. Anyway, I went out of the place a little disappointed with my visit.

  • The early history of Europe
  • Nice new city museum of Aachen. Fun and fresh overview of the highlights from 2000 years of city history. Nice museum café with views over the Katschhof. Two or three times a year Exchange exhibitions. Audio guides in the usual languages.
