The building housing the Mitte Museum was constructed between 1864 and 1866 as the 32nd community school, in accordance with a design by the Berlin urban construction councillor Adolf Gerstenberg. It was the first public building in the suburbs of Gesundbrunnen and Wedding, which were incorporated into Berlin in 1861. Today it is among the oldest surviving school buildings in the city. The building, which is typical of the late neo-classicist style of the Berlin Bauakademie (Berlin Building Academy), has been used as a museum since 1987.
