Here you will find the current and upcoming events and special exhibitions of the LWL Museum in the Kaiserpfalz.


Your help is needed...

From May 2025 to February 2026, the LWL Museum in the Kaiserpfalz will be hosting a major anniversary exhibition to mark the first naming of the Westphalians in the year 775, because the Westphalians and Westphalia have been spoken of for 1250 years. Westphalia has only been an independent political entity and a clearly defined region since 1815 - but what happened before that? With small and large archaeological and cultural-historical highlights, we trace the history of the region, which has shifted again and again, important Westphalians and the image of Westphalia through time.

All we need now is an exhibition title. Do you have an idea?

Send your ideas to or write to us on Instagram or Facebook. We are excited!
