Keramikmuseum Westerwald
In the ceramics museum in Höhr-Grenzhausen you will find almost everything on the subject of clay and ceramics on 2500 m²:from clay mining, - past and present -, the history and modernity of ceramics to high-tech ceramics and a museum pedagogy as interesting as it is instructive. The museum shop and museum restaurant complete an active and open house, which as a museum has something to offer for everyone! Families with children are very welcome here! Our museum education is creative and interesting! And our house is completely barrier-free to visit and also well equipped for wheelchair users - ramps are available on all 4 exhibition levels. In the museum shop you can expect stress-free shopping and a pleasantly cultivated atmosphere in the house. On more than 2500 m2 of exhibition space, the Keramikmuseum Westerwald, which was built in 1982 and expanded to 5000 m2 in 2007, displays works from almost 5 centuries of ceramic history. Over 4 bright, large exhibition levels, visitors are offered a good overview of the historical development of ceramics. Starting with prehistoric exhibits, this leads from the early salt-glazed Westerwald stoneware to magnificent vessels of the Renaissance, the Art Nouveau vessels and the exhibits of the 50s to 90s of the 20th century. Through spectacular exhibitions and the announcement of the Westerwald Prize as a competition open to participants from all over Europe, the Keramikmuseum Westerwald presents itself as a forum especially for contemporary ceramics. Numerous special exhibitions on ceramic themes inform both trade visitors and guests interested in tourism about current trends in ceramic creation. Symposia, conferences, concerts and lectures offer space for discussion and a growing network within European and international ceramics. The museum shows craft and tradition, design, freely designed sculptures, turned and mounted pieces as well as the innovative use of new materials and techniques.

Dorfmuseum Niederbreitbach
The local history museum in the village of Niederbreitbach (Herrenhofstr. 2A) is a former agricultural property with a main house, stables, sheds and remise as well as a baking oven. The village museum shows the way of life and furnishings from the second half of the 19th century on a former manor farm. It consists of a dwelling house, barn, courtyard and coach house and is a listed building. There are six rooms in the residential house; the history of Niederbreitbach is presented in three of the rooms and three reflect the living culture from the earlier period. In addition, the barn, built in 1855, offers further space for exhibition purposes. Here you can see equipment used in agriculture as well as tools of various trades. The horse and cow stable integrated into the barn also houses utensils of the time. As far as the historical background of the house is concerned, it can be said that the later manor house of 1250 was presumably brought into the marriage with Count Heinrich III of Sayn by Countess Mechtildis of Sayn, as the farm was one of her parents' Thuringian possessions. After her husband's death, however, she transferred most of the property to the archdiocese of Cologne, but made a point of keeping the farm. In 1468, the farm is mentioned in a document as a "wine press house". The local support association contributes to the preservation and presentation of historical objects and facts. A visit is also possible by prior arrangement. Contact addresses: - Niederbreitbach Tourist Office, office at the campsite, tel. 02638-4254. - Wiedtal Tourist Office in Waldbreitbach, Tel.02638-5866 - Norbert Hess, Chairman of the Society for the Promotion of the Niederbreitbach Village Museum, Tel. 02638-5866.
