History for Brunswick

The different locations of the Brunswick State Museum

The Braunschweigisches Landesmuseum makes history come alive at its four locations – from 50,000 years ago to the present.

With its multi-faceted collection and a huge exhibition area distributed over four different locations, the Braunschweigisches Landesmuseum is one of the major history museums in Germany.

Alongside the permanent exhibition on the history of the region in Brunswick’s Burgplatz, the Museum also offers an exhibition on Jewish religion and culture at its venue Hinter Aegidien. This building also houses the rooms of the former Benedictine monastery from the 12th century. An exhibition on the pre-history and early history of the Brunswick region can be visited at the Kanzlei Wolfenbüttel.

All these exhibitions are in historical buildings that contribute to the Museum’s character and create a very special atmosphere.
