Minden museum

Minden museum is a city- and regional history museum sponsored by the city of Minden. It is responsible for collecting, preserving, researching, exhibiting and conveying originals from the history of the city and region, from the oldest traces of human settlement to the present day.

Picturesquely located in the Upper Old Town of Minden already the houses themselves are part of the exhibition: sculptures from the Weser Renaissance can be admired here as well as stucco ornaments or a hoist from the 16th century. They are listed and traces of the former residents can actually still be found. In addition, the houses have become a popular photo motif and trademark.

With the aim of entertaining and promoting lifelong learning, you will find exhibitions in the Minden Museum on historical, cultural-historical, artistic, scientific or technical-historical topics from the history of Minden.

Guided tours through the special exhibitions and the historical museum line can be booked at any time - even ouf of the opening times.
The museum also offers family programs, museum educational activities and city rallies for children.

Tip: Exploring the city and the city's history is particularly fun with the interactive city model!

Public tours take place every 1st Thursday of the month at 5 p.m. and every 3rd Sunday at 2 p.m in German language.
