Daytrip to Cologne: Rautenstrauch-Joest-­Museum, Latin America Day!

  • This location is shown only to members

Latin America Day with special events, food, music .....

Rautenstrauch-Joest-Museum - Cologne’s ethnological museum

Since 2009 in new premises

Huge collection of themes from a wide range of non-European cultures

The museum opened in 1906 with a collection largely donated by the scientist and traveller Wilhelm Joest and his brother-in-law Eugen Rautenstrauch.

The museum holdings encompass 65,000 objects, about 100,000 historic photographs and an extensive library, including an excellent Oceania department with 20,000 items from Australia, Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia. Africa, the Near East and pre-Columbian civilizations of South and Central America are also well represented. The aim of the museum, one of the leading institutions of its kind in Germany, is not only to engage in research, but to promote understanding of and respect for other peoples by presenting their culture. In the new premises areas on the upper floors will be organized thematically, permitting a comparison of the attitudes in different cultures to such issues as social identity, death and religion.

To cover our costs for organization we ask for a small contribution of 2,50 € per person in cash at the beginning of the tour.

Museum entrance fee € 7,-  incl. Latin American events

Important note for train tickets: There is the chance to buy NRW group tickets. So please make sure you are at the meeting point inside on time. Otherwise you might have to get a single ticket which is far more expensive! In order to buy the correct ticket for yourself please also check or Please note that the organizer, who always tries to help, cannot take over any responsibility for your travel tickets.

    For all of those travelling with us from Düsseldorf, please make sure you arrive at the meeting point no later than 11:30 hrs, so that we have enough time to sort out our group tickets to Cologne. Thanks!
