Stadtmuseum Gütersloh

The Stadtmuseum Gütersloh (Gütersloh Town Museum) is a museum in Gütersloh, Germany, dealing with the city’s history. Under the auspices of Gütersloh’s association for local history it accommodates – beside exhibits to Gütersloh’s local history – two exhibitions referring to the history of medicine and the industrial history. Every year about five to seven special exhibitions about local topics respectively travelling exhibitions take place in addition to these three permanent exhibitions. The medical-historic collection – the flagship of the museum – was granted a special prize of the European Museum of the Year Award in 1990. A desk of the Nobel Prize winner Robert Koch and an iron lung are some of the most important exhibits.

Museum’s History

On 24th June 1982 Dr. Wilhelm Angenete (1890-1984) – a family doctor in Gütersloh – and his sister Else donated two real estates with buildings in the city of Gütersloh to the association for local history on condition of establishing a museum there. In 1988 the town museum Gütersloh was opened in a brick building under the responsibility of Gütersloh’s association for local history. Till today the town Gütersloh participates in the cost sharing. In 1997 a neighbouring half-timbered house could be renovated in a second construction phase. In the year 2000 the museum’s café was opened.
