In Gronau, you will find several original museums. One of the beautiful historical buildings houses Rock'n'pop Museum. As the name suggests, this museum is focused on music, and its historical building alone is able to surprise visitors. The facade was decorated with multi-colored arches with silhouettes of world-famous performers. A very interesting collection is hidden within the museum walls. Here you can see portraits of popular performers, their personal belongings and records, as well as musical instruments. The museum keeps a large collection of old tape recorders and computers, as well as other musical equipment that artists used in the mid-20th century. The museum is quite unusual; a picturesque landscaped garden is equipped next to it in the warm season.
If you like walking, it'd be interesting to stroll around Döhrmannplatz. Many beautiful national-style buildings are concentrated around the square, nearby you can find some interesting sculptures. It is especially nice to walk here on a sunny summer day when sculptural compositions complement fountains. Gronau is quite small, so it's convenient to explore its historic district, main streets, and squares on foot.
