Museums

Both congress cities Cologne and Bonn feature a rich ensemble of museums with different specialties and are worth a visit.

We will finish our programme on 22 May at the Römisch-Germanisches Museum in Cologne and on 23 May at the LVR-LandesMuseum in Bonn with the special exhibition 'Im Meer versunken. Sizilien und die Unterwasserarchäologie'. You will have the possibility to explore both locations and complete the evening with a drink and little snacks.

Furthermore you can use your congress badge to get free entrance or at least a reduced entry fee in numerous facilities in Cologne and Bonn.
