Museum for cultural history
For more than 100 years, one of the largest cultural-historical museums in Lower Saxony, located opposite the Celle Palace, has been presenting its collections about the everyday culture of eastern Lower Saxony, the town’s history as well as the history of the former Kingdom of Hanover. Since October 2013, the completely redesigned permanent exhibitions can be accessed once again. Newly created exhibition areas illustrate the cultural history of the town and its region in a variety of ways.
Starting with an integrated farmhouse, the importance of agriculture within the cultural history of Celle’s region is exhibited on a tour. Another exhibition area takes visitors into the Biedermeier period and illustrates the development of Celle’s bourgeois culture. The first floor is dedicated to the development of industry and craft. The top floor highlights, using three examples significant for the town, migration to the area of Celle, forced displacement and depicts how migrants settled down in a foreign country. A further exhibition is dedicated to the popularity of the Lüneburg Heath among travellers, artists and writers.
The museum also presents special culture-historical and historical exhibitions. Its education department offers visitors of all ages a variety of programmes, such as children’s birthday parties and artists’ workshops.
