As a participative museum the city museum of Düsseldorf (simply called Stadtmuseum) is your platform for the design of urban processes. Starting from the important European collections of prehistory and early history you can not only become observers, but also discussants, researchers and designers of your own city. The team of the Stadtmuseum, the Friends of the Stadtmuseum Düsseldorf (registered association), the Association of German Architects, BDA Düsseldorf, the Keyworkers and other partners present a rich program connected to the collections of art, applied arts, archeology, photography and fashion. Visit the Stadtmuseum and enjoy our services.

An inspiring time wishes
