Geo-Museums on the traces of
earth's history

Collection and information locations

Emergence, change, decay - the GEO museums in the Vulkaneifel are collection and information centers for this exciting debate. They are the key to understanding this fascinating landscape and its history.

Each museum has its own thematic focus and is dedicated to the corresponding facets of geoscientific, but also natural history, historical, cultural and technical features of the Vulkaneifel. Understanding through experiencing is the basic didactic concept. Seeing, feeling, smelling, hearing – even complex connections become “understandable” with all the senses, in the truest sense of the word. The target group is broad and even those with a scientific background will find something new to learn. Children and young people are introduced to the topics in a playful way, with a “fun factor”, so to speak.
