Roemer- und Pelizaeus-Musuem

Hermann Roemer (1816-1894) and Wilhelm Pelizaeus (1851-1930), citizens of Hildesheim, donated their collections to the city of Hildesheim, thus establishing the basis of the museum. Senator Hermann Roemer – jurist and geologist – initiated and financed collections and purchases. In 1907, the businessman Wilhelm Pelizaeus gave a significant collection of Egyptian antiquities to his hometown that could move into a museum of its own in 1911 – the former Pelizaeus-Museum.

After a time of stagnation during the 1930s and the destruction of the buildings during World War II – the pieces were evacuated – the Roemer- und Pelizaeus-Museum could be reopened in 1959. []
