The teacher and local historian Joseph Vonderau brought much light into the early history of the Fulda territory through his excavations and research in the last century. Thus, the Voderau Museum provides its visitors much worth knowing about Fulda and its surroundings in the three areas of cultural history, natural history and painting/sculptures.

The museum is closed on 24th December, but open on 31st December from 10 am to 2 pm, unless this day falls on a Monday.
A contemporary equipped planetarium is located within the Vonderau Museum.
