All important info for the on-site visit
The Lippisches Landesmuseum, in the heart of Detmold, houses extensive collections from the fields of art, culture and natural history. The Cultures of the World collection houses a very special treasure: a 6,500-year-old child mummy from Peru. It is considered to be the oldest mummy that can be viewed in Europe - older than Ötzi and almost twice as old as the mummy of the Pharaoh Tutankhamun.
The permanent exhibition Mythos shows the most comprehensive collection in Germany on the history of the Varus Battle between Germanic tribes and Romans. Numerous objects and modern media show how the historical event became a myth in German history.
With special offers for children, young people and adults, the museum offers a varied programme.

Rome's flowing borders - NRW State Archaeological Exhibition
Crossing borders at the Limes
24 September 2021 to 27 February 2022
Peaceful neighbourhood, warlike confrontations and at the centre a border. The Limes separated the Roman province from the people living east of the Rhine. Fascinating stories of the cross-border contacts are told from the point of view of the local population. From the beginning of the first encounters to the disintegration of the Roman Empire, special archaeological finds accompany the visitor through time.
