Short facts

  • Hofgeismar

The Hofgeismar City Museum is a regional museum with several international themes

There has been a museum in Hofgeismar since 1938 as a "local history museum". The reconstruction of the Hofgeismar town museum began in 1977/78, and in 1986 the town museum moved to its current location on Petriplatz. Since then, 12 thematically different, but often "interlinked" permanent exhibitions have been shown in the four buildings. The rooms on the ground floor of House I are barrier-free. Special exhibitions are held here several times a year.

House I:
Prehistory and early history; Pottery in the Reinhardswald; Ceramist Rolf Weber; History of the Huguenots and Waldensians; Garrison town of Hofgeismar; Painter Theodor Rocholl

House II:
Jewish culture in North Hesse; guild and economic history; Bad Hofgeismar; Hofgeismar citizens; artist Wilhelm Hugues; Hofgeismar biotopes; geology

The paintings of the painter Theodor Rocholl are in storage and are regularly presented at special exhibitions.

The Hofgeismar City Museum offers guided tours for interested parties, especially school classes.
