Museum Insel Hombroich Germany

Museum Insel Hombroich is located near Dusseldorf in Germany. For years this museum was on our list to visit and finally this weekend we are going to do just that. We happen to be in Dusseldorf to vist a gemstone fair. It is a small but fun fair. There will be mostly stone grinders present who are selling special and one-off cut stones.

Ring Toetanchamon met opaal

Among other things we are looking for a small opal which we need for the new Tutanchamon ring. Jan is making one at the moment.

Furthermore, we are looking for a beauty like the yellow stone above to make a similar ring. And who knows what else we are going to find.

So after the gem fair we are going to vist Museum Insel Hombroich. I am really looking forward to it!

The museum describes itself as follows:” Museum Insel Hombroich is a special place, away from the bustle of daily routine and fashionable trends. It is an invitation to enter into the adventure of a direct encounter with art and nature. The Museum dispenses with signposts altogether – visitors are free to find their own way in the extensive parkland and make their own discoveries of art and nature alike. This freedom of the spirit is at the heart of the Museum’s particular charm. A day at Museum Insel Hombroich wakens the senses.”

“An unique ensemble of art, architecture and landscape.”
