(ADW) It's a little later than originally planned, but finally the European Museum in Schengen will open its doors once again to visitors following the disaster of a collapsing ceiling last year.

It was in May last year the ceiling slaps suddenly fell to the ground in the exhibition room, reportedly because they had corroded and dissolved over the years.

Since then the museum has been closed to the public for complete renovation work, and the opportunity was also taken to the give the adjacent bistro a complete face-lift.

The final details will be completed by Monday and from next week visitors will be welcomed to the newly renovated rooms. However it is not only the ceiling that has been renovated, but also the audio system, which now apparently is state-of-the-art.

From Monday the permanent exhibition on the European integration process can be visited daily. Up until March 25 opening times are from 10am to 5pm. From March 25 until the end of October, doors will open an hour longer until 6pm. From October the times switch back to closing time of 5pm.
