The origins of the State Museum can partly be traced back to a donation made by Napoleon in 1803, making this one of the oldest museums in Germany. It is home to the most important art collection in Rhineland-Palatinate. As well as Roman stone monuments and prehistoric and early historic artefacts from the Middle Rhine, the museum’s exhibits include paintings, sculptures and arts and crafts from the Middle Ages to the present day. Special exhibitions enhance the wide offer.
