Persons who want to find out more about the Neanderthals, the Romans along the Rhine, or the works of art in our museum are very welcome to visit our library. This is a special scientific library for archaeology and art history. Disposing over more than 180,000 books and around 900 current periodicals, it is one of the largest specialist archaeological libraries in Germany. It was founded nearly 200 years ago by the "Verein von Altertumsfreunden im Rheinland (Society of the Friends of Rhineland Antiquities)", which continues to support our acquisitions even today.
