Museums and Academic Collections

Bonn's many museums and exhibitions have contributed to the city's attractiveness as a centre of culture and science. The university can claim a major role here, too, since it has a number of important museums that serve as centres of academic training and research and open their treasures to the public.
A visit to any of these museums will undoubtedly be both entertaining and informative:
