LVR-LandesMuseum im Landschaftsverband Rheinland

The LVR-LandesMuseum is the Rhineland's only museum of cultural history. As the Rheinisches Landesmuseum for Archaeology, Art, and Cultural History, it presents the development of the region from its beginnings to the present day. It is the largest museum in the Rhineland Regional Council (LVR) and ranks among the leading archaeological research institutions. The museum is sponsored by the Rhineland Regional Council.

The Landschaftsverband Rheinland (LVR) works as a communal association with around 17,000 employees for the approx. 9.6 million Rhineland inhabitants. The LVR has responsibilities for the Rhineland as a whole in the areas of help for the disabled, youth welfare, psychiatry, and culture. It is the largest service provider for persons with disabilities in Germany, operating 41 special needs schools, ten clinics and networks for therapeutic pedagogy, as well as eleven museums and many diverse cultural institutions. It is dedicated to a society of inclusion in all spheres of life. In this endeavor, the LVR is guided by its motto, "quality for people". The 13 independent cities, 12 counties, and the urban region of Aachen in the Rhineland constitute the membership bodies. These sponsor and finance the LVR, whose work is shaped in its regional assembly, being made up of 128 members from the Rhineland communes.
