The Archaeological Museum

The historical building of the Kanzlei Wolfenbüttel houses the archaeological collection and, in order to memorialize the building’s original role, the Renaissance gallery of drawers of the ducal chancellery.

The Braunschweigisches Landesmuseum offices for archaeological science have been housed in the former ducal chancellery in the heart of Wolfenbüttel’s Old Town since 1959 and include a store room for archaeological finds as well as restoration workshops. The building was built on the foundations of older buildings at the end of the 16th century in the late-Renaissance style as the administrative center of the Dukes of Brunswick.

The permanent archaeological exhibition is currently undergoing an extensive re-design. From 2024, a new educational program on the stone ages will be realized for school classes.

The Archaeological Museum is closed to individual visitors until further notice. Visits by school classes are possible upon request.
