Museum in the water tower

Museum in the water tower

At the southern exit of the Mönchengladbach district of Rheindahlen is one of the most important Stone Age sites in the Lower Rhine. The Archaeological Museum in the water tower was established by the Rheindahlen local history researcher and hobby archaeologist Toni Mennen, who died in 2007. It is located in the immediate vicinity of the site on the ground floor of the Rheindahlen water tower.

With the help of numerous exhibits and diagrams, the museum vividly presents the development of Stone Age cultures in the left Lower Rhine over a period of at least 500,000 years. The museum is open from march to november every first saturday of the month from 14 to 17 pm. The entrance is free of charge.
