The city museum, Stadtmuseum, is the oldest museum in Dusseldorf and shows in its collection the history, culture and arts of the city of Dusseldorf and the region. Thematic priority is placed for instance on Dusseldorf during the time of the duchy of Julich-Kleve-Berg during the time of the 14th to the 16th century.
Furthermore the industrialisation and the cultural history in the 19th century are shown as is the Dusseldorf art scene during the Weimar Republic, the National Socialism and the post-war period. The collection is ordered with a chronological structure such as in the arrangement of the showrooms, giving the visitor a very clear overview.
Varying exhibitions show the development of the city in most different facets. "City life and urban development" was one such exhibit. And a very interesting exhibit will be shown in summer 2007: "Sex and the city". In addition, through project rooms as well as comment and working platforms, the visitor is able to take part in the museum itself.
A big advantage of the Stadtmuseum is the service for seniors. Disabled or old people can be fetched free of charge from home and after the visit of the Stadtmuseum be brought back again. Accordingly, the café Spoerl in the Ey offers low-price coffee and cakes as refreshments.
