The centre of Berlin: Tradition and change
During the 19th and early 20th centuries, Berlin changed from a Prussian residential city to a global political power centre and, last but not least to an industrial city with a rapidly increasing population.
What effects did this socio-political process have on the lives of the people at that time? What are the similarities in the everyday life of a working-class family around the year 1900 with that of a so-called guest-worker family in (West) Berlin in 1970? What parallels can be drawn to our multi-cultural society of today?
This museum tour for grown-ups is focused on the life of the ordinary people whose biographies and personal mementoes make the history of Berlin come to life.
Dates: By appointment on Thursdays from 10 a.m. on
Duration of the guided tour: approx. 1.5 to 2 hours
Free of charge

Museum closed until 2018
