A unique opportunity: Come and visit the construction site
On September 13, 2015 from 12 to 5 pm Röntgen’s birthplace opens its doors to its inner secrets - meaning the current construction site. The birthplace takes part in the nationwide campaign "Open Historical Monument Presentation". For the first time the Foundation for the Birthplace of Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen participates in the annual campaign of the “German Foundation for Preservation of Sites of Historic Interest” which themes "craft, technology, industry" this year.
On that day in September, Dr. Uwe Busch, director of the German Röntgen Museum, and the architects in charge of the restoration, Sophie and Christof Welke, will explain the current state of implementation and further construction plans to the visitors who can also explore the rooms.
