Märkisches Museum

Märkisches Museum

In this striking structure on the banks of the Spree River, the Stadtmuseum Berlin Foundation presents a host of artefacts related to the culture and history of the city.

A virtuosic, carefully staged ensemble in the style of Wilhelminian Historicism, this structure pays homage to architectural precursors from the north of Germany and the Mark Brandenburg region while at the same time offering state of the art exhibitions.

A new vision for the museum

Since autumn 2016, the museum has been in the process of renovating for the 21st century in order to complete the partial reconstruction that took place after the Second World War. Alongside new space for temporary special exhibitions, this process includes a new concept for the permanent exhibition.

On the first floor, BerlinZEIT presents an easily understandable overview of Berlin's history from the ice age to the present day, while on the second floor there's a more in-depth historical-cultural content as well as places to rest. The [Test]Spaces offer more new outlooks, giving exciting insights into the work that that is done at the museum. 

When the renovation work is completed in a couple of years, this time-honoured building, along with the neighbouring Marinehaus, will make up the heart of a museum and creative quarter at the Köllnischer Park.
