The LWL Museum for Archaeology is in the centre of Herne and exhibits 10,000 findings from Westphalia's human history. Discover the history of this region in an underground excavation site – a unique exhibition. Your journey through the permanent exhibition will lead you on a walkway past graves from the Bronze Age, through Neanderthal caves and a medieval city.
You become the researcher yourself
In the prize-winning research laboratory, you will become an explorer or scientist and apply historical or physical methods. If you want to ‘dig’ yourself, take part in an excavation camp which regularly takes place in the outdoor area. Here, you will expose findings independently under instruction. In addition to the permanent exhibition, the Museum for Archaeology in Herne also regularly puts on interesting special exhibitions.
