Rheinisches Landesmuseum, Bonn (must see)

The Rheinisches Landesmuseum Bonn, or LVR-LandesMuseum Bonn, is a museum in Bonn, run by the Rhineland Landscape Association. It is one of the oldest museums in the country. The museum has a number of notable ancient busts and figures dating back to Roman times.

An early forerunner, the "Museum of Antiquities" (Museum Rheinisch-Westfälischer Alterthümer), was founded in 1820 by decree of the Prussian state chancellor Karl August von Hardenberg. A more direct ancestor, the "Provincial Museum", was founded in 1874, though it did not get its own building until 1893. This was enlarged in 1907, but the older section was destroyed during World War II and replaced by a new building. The museum was extensively renovated from 1998 to 2003, allowing a new presentation of the exhibits. The "Stone Age Area" was redesigned in 2010.

The archaeological exhibits are divided into historical themes. Works of art are also displayed throughout the exhibition, with masterpieces next to simple tools and religious works beside everyday objects. The museum also owns a collection of prints and photographs, and one of coins and medallions. The "Stone Age Area" features the original skeleton of a neanderthal, and displays the evolution of humanity from the development of upright posture to the early Celtic cultures of Europe.
