The building of the museum was erected in the 14th century by the "Burgmann von dem Rykenberge", who was one of the officers of the archiepiscopal Werl town guard.
The historical building creates a memorable ambience for the presentation of important periods of Werl's town history.
The Biedermeier ambience of the upper middle-class furnished fireplace room, the main room on the first floor of the building, creates an impressive and beautiful setting for visitors and events. There are various offers for kindergartens and school classes.
For children's birthday parties, it is possible to choose from various themes depending on the age group.
There are special customs offers before Easter and Christmas. During a museum week there is an extensive program accompanied by museum educators.
For adults there are readings, concerts, lectures and special tours.
The main room is ideal for civil weddings, which are organized in consultation with the registry office. When the weather is nice, the romantic museum garden can also be used. Early registration is recommended.
Since 01.01.2014, the new Heimat- und Geschichtsverein has taken over the management of the Städt. Museum.
Mrs. Gabriele Moser-Olthoff is still responsible for the museum education. You can reach her on Monday and Thursday afternoons at 02922 861631 or email@example.com.
