Thonet Ausstellung im Museum

56154 Boppard

Michael Thonet and his sons, photographed towards the end of the 1850s. Probably, had Michael Thonet not tried his business luck far away from home, he would have remained poor indeed. Michael Thonet (* July 2, 1796 in Boppard, † March 3, 1871 in Vienna). Many factors contributed to his success, which would certainly not have come into play in the Middle Rhine Valley. First of all, thanks to his inventive talent, Thonet was able to use techniques for his furniture that were far outside his learned profession. At the same time, he and his sons succeeded in converting the production from individual craftsmanship to mass production. In doing so, he generally did not fall back on the machine manufacturers' range of products available on the market, but developed, designed and optimized his tools and machines himself.

Museum Boppard In its more than one hundred years of history in the Electoral Castle, our museum has undergone many changes. One of the most extensive was the refurnishing after the restoration of the building. This now forms one of the new focal points with its history - the castle becomes an object of asseveration. In the department of town history you will find excerpts from the history of Boppard in the the late Middle Ages and the early modern are presented. Our extensive collection of bentwood furniture also tells the story of Michael Thonet, a son of the town, who started as an craftsman with an idea and created a world enterprise. Regularly changing exhibitions and and events on history and art are are part of the permanent program of our house. For information, please visit: www.museum-boppard.de
