This is how an exhibition room looks three weeks before the opening: installations are delivered, walls have to be painted, display cabinets have to be put in place. Soon, the first objects will arrive.
Although Celle at that time was a rather insignificant ducal residence, it played, however, a dominant role in spreading the Reformation throughout northern Germany. In four exhibitions, located in the Bomann Museum Celle, the Residence Museum in the Celle Palace and in the Protestant town church of St. Mary’s, the history of the Reformation and its impact up to the present time is jointly traced. By highlighting various aspects of the Reformation as a movement, the religious and cultural changes it set in motion, affecting all areas of society are brought to life. Under the joint title ‘Taking a stand’ the exhibitions shown at three locations close together in the town centre invite visitors to rediscover the history of the Reformation and the impact it had on Celle and the Lüneburg Heath.
