An ok museum in the old town of Düsseldorf (Alt Stadt). Interesting collection and an ok place to visit. An interesting piece of artwork on the wall too.

This museum is fairly large. It presents the city history in a chronological order, starting from prehistoric times. There are archeological findings, lots of paintings, and items like a carriage. I thought the anatomical models of a man and woman, for instructing nuns, were quite...More

Quite disappointing. It is boring and uninspiring , and is sure to disappoint an international visitor looking for a taste of German history. The rooms seem to be thrown together in a haphazard way , there is little or no video presentation or even graphics....More
