WELCOME TO THE BONN-RHINE MONUMENT AND HISTORY SOCIETY
We are a "citizens' initiative" of around 350 friends and supporters for the preservation of the cultural heritage in the Bonn-Beuel district. Founded in 1975 under the name Verein Haus Mehlem e.V., our activities began with the rescue of the patrician house Mehlem in Beuel, which was threatened with demolition.

OPENING HOURS OF THE MUSEUM
The Bürgermeister-Stroof-Haus is not only the headquarters of the Denkmal- und Geschichtsverein Bonn-Rechtsrheinisch e.V., but also a museum open to the public.
The Bürgermeister-Stroof-Haus reflects the condition from the beginning of the 19th century, from late Baroque to Biedermeier: half-timbering of the 18th century. The 18th century half-timbering (under "urban" plaster on the street side) with hollow tile/straw doll roof, open fireplace and flue on medieval quarry stone walls (hearth wall, well and hidden cellar vaults) and late baroque interior (Cologne stucco ceilings, wall panels, painting) with contemporary furnishings convey the official and residential atmosphere of the first Vilich/Beuel mayor.
The opening hours are as follows:
Every Friday and Sunday from 3pm - 6pm
Admission is free, special tours on requestLearn more
The StroofKOLLEG is a popular series of lectures on topics related to the history of Beuel.
