Theme islands with innovative sound

In the newly designed rock’n’pop museum, visitors can look forward to a thematically and creatively fascinating journey through the dimensions of pop music. Elaborately staged showcases form themed islands grouped around concepts such as rebellion, live on stage and performance.

Sounds like energy – welcome to our new music club

With our Turbine music club, a new iconic location with space for 300 guests has been created in the basement of the museum. Live music is the main attraction here – but there are also readings, DJ events, temporary exhibitions and interdisciplinary cultural events. It is also possible to hire the premises for corporate events, for example.

Tuesday – Sunday: 10:00 – 18:00

We are open on all public holidays of the year!
Except on these days: 24.12., 25.12., 31.12., 01.01.

The prices include the audio guides, with which you can listen to all the content of the exhibitions.

The rock’n’popmuseum has an elevator,
a disabled WC and stable wheelchair ramps, so it is barrier-free.
Unfortunately, dogs are not allowed in our museum.

The sound makes the music - PhänomexX in the rock'n'pop museum

Why do we hear sounds at different volumes? What are sound waves and how are they generated? These and many other questions can be explored and experienced at the interactive stations.

From July 9th, young and old researchers can discover these secrets in the rock’n’pop museum: in the PhänomxX laboratory, which the museum has initiated as a special exhibition together with the education office of the district of Borkens.

The exhibition offers exciting interactive stations where the secrets of sounds and sound waves can be discovered in a playful way. The PhänomexX school laboratory invites all pupils to explore the world of sound and noise for themselves. Practical experiments and exciting stations encourage them to be curious, ask questions and look for answers. This exciting exhibition allows young researchers to explore the basics of acoustics and develop their creative skills.

The free vacation program, which takes place every Tuesday and Friday from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. during the summer vacations, is particularly attractive. All little explorers can experience exciting vacation adventures here. During the program, the children are supervised in the exhibition and can be picked up again afterwards.

After the summer vacation, the exhibition will be used as an extracurricular learning space. With many references to the current guidelines and curricula, the project can be optimally integrated into school lessons. A mandatory workshop for interested teachers will take place on August 27, 2024 at the rock’n’popmuseum. All schools in the Borken district will receive information on this at the end of the summer vacation; registrations can be made via the Borken district education office.

The new interactive exhibition is supported by the joint initiative of the
rock’n’popmuseum Gronau and the Borken district education office. This cooperation enables the financing and realization of the exhibition as well as the coordination of the school groups.

Permanent exhibition

Hear, see, feel

With its exhibition concept, the rock’n’popmuseum creates goosebump moments like at a live concert. In the exhibition, all age groups will find a multimedia experience of sounds, images and exhibits. Multimedia and interactive elements make the visit an unforgettable experience. A highlight awaits visitors right at the entrance: Gronau’s most famous son, rock legend Udo Lindenberg, greets everyone in person on a multi-monitor animation.

Visitors can look forward to a thematically and creatively fascinating journey through the dimensions of pop music. Elaborately staged showcases form themed islands grouped around concepts such as rebellion, live on stage and performance.

High-ranking relics of pop music and an innovative sound system round off the unique exhibition concept.

Our special thanks go to Udo Lindenberg and the L’Unique Foundation.
