Niederrheinisches Museum für Volkskunde und Kulturgeschichte

Lower Rhine Museum of Ethnology and Cultural History

The Niederrheinisches Museum für Volkskunde und Kulturgeschichte lies in the very heart of Kevelaer, in enchanting surroundings. It is a complex of buildings which shapes the townscape and is one of the largest museum buildings in the Lower Rhine Region with its more than 4,500 square metres. Founded in 1910, the building has maintained its significance in folklore as a treasure chest for the region between the Rhine and Maas rivers. In more than 20 permanent exhibition areas, the museum documents both rural and civil material culture, old handicrafts, popular piety, marksmanship as well as regional and local history. Moreover, arts and crafts products, prints and ceramics are presented. Also, the museum adopts cultural historical topics, with a preference for the Lower Rhine, in repeated temporary exhibitions.
