The museums in the Weser Uplands are always well worth a visit. From museums that mainly focus on local and regional history right through to specialist museums such as the Helicopter Museum in Bückeburg or one of the region’s fire brigade museums, the Weser Uplands offers a wide range of exhibitions exploring all kinds of different topics. Many local museums focus on a specific topic that defines their home town. Hamelin Museum, for example, provides a comprehensive insight into the history of the Rat-Catcher of Hamelin, while Bodenwerder Museum tells visitors all about Baron von Münchhausen and his tales. The Museum of Agricultural Engineering and Farm Work in Börry, on the other hand, focuses on the history of regional agriculture. Delve into the history of our region and discover plenty of interesting facts about the Weser Uplands!
A particularly special highlight is the Museumslandschaft Hameln-Pyrmont (Hamelin-Pyrmont Museum Landscape). A multitude of museums from the Hameln-Pyrmont district have teamed up to form the group, which organises a special Summer Night of Museums (Museums-Sommernacht) every year. At the event, the museums stay open for longer and also offer additional highlights that make visiting several exhibitions in one evening well worth the effort.
