Ahaus Gatehouse and School Museum

Who doesn't remember their school days? For some it is associated with pleasant times, for some it may mean a time to forget. However, no one will forget what their classroom looked like, how the chalk scraped across the blackboard and the rough surfaces of the wooden desks felt. If you want to refresh your memories or take a look at the school of 50 years ago, then the school museum in Ahaus is just the place for you.

Right next to Ahaus Castle, the small museum offers a nice insight into bygone school days. Former school director Winfried Bergen has lovingly put together an exhibition of school utensils from the 19th and 20th centuries. Leather knapsacks and school backpacks are on display, as are school desks, inkwells and school desks. Take a seat, soak up the atmosphere and browse through long-forgotten utensils. For young visitors, too, the school museum offers a unique opportunity to compare what learning was like then with what it is like now.

The entrance to the museum is marked with a small slate at the entrance to Ahaus Castle. Admission is free.
