The city museum of Andernach was opened in 1936 as "Heimatmuseum" (homeland museum). It is located in the historical building "Haus von der Leyen", which has been built at the end of the 16th century and which is one of the most beautiful buildings in Andernach. The former city palace of the nobleman Georg von der Leyen is a perfect example of the elaborate architecture of the late Renaissance. Especially impressive is the portico with its manifold citations of greek and roman traditions of construction.
