Founded in 1892, and named after its first director, Wilhelm Bomann, directly opposite the Celler Castle, is the Bomann Museum, one of the largest and most important museums in Lower Saxony. Museum presents a collection of approximately 5,500 m2 of exhibition space to the folklore of eastern Lower Saxony, to the history of Celle and to the history of Hanover.
Characteristic of the Bomann Museum are its large productions of completely furnished rooms. This way the visitor can go through a complete Lower Saxony farmhouse or living space and a middle-class kitchen from the first half of the 19th century. In addition, modernly designed permanent exhibitions provide insights into urban life in the 19th century and one of the most beautiful text collections in North Germany.
The Residenzmuseum in the Celle Castle is attached to the Bomann Museum. It currently includes the state chambers of the last duke pair residing in Celle as well as a comprehensive exhibition on the history of the Kingdom of Hanover and on the life of the Danish queen Caroline Mathilde. Here, comprehensive measures are planned for the new design, with the aim of revitalizing the residenz history Celle.
The Eberhard-Schlotter-Stiftung Celle and the foundation collection Tansey are also affiliated to the museum. The museum pedagogical department offers a wide range of programs for visitors of various ages. A café and beautiful courtyards, which are included in the event, complete the offer.
