Mitte Museum will be accessible to persons with a disability!
From 1 April 2016 on, Mitte Museum will be closed for two years.
Major restructuring and modernising work will be performed on the listed museum building which was constructed from 1864 until 1866 and was the 26th community school, and now is among the oldest community school buildings in Berlin. <mehr>
After three year's work, the last section of the permanent exhibition was opened in September 2007. The 14 museum rooms extending over 450 sqm show a multi-faceted spectrum of the history of the city centre of Berlin. Theme-related zones present everyday culture and the history of local schools. Five museum rooms present selected subjects from the history of the district of Mitte, which since 2001 comprises the areas of the three former districts of Mitte, Tiergarten and Wedding. The timeline is focused on the 19th and 20th centuries.
The exhibition is focused on the collections of the Mitte Museum. These include a number of loans from the Deutsches Historisches Museum (German History Museum), Stiftung Stadtmuseum Berlin (Stadtmuseum Berlin foundation), Stiftung Deutsches Technikmuseum Berlin (German Technical Museum Berlin Foundation), Königliche Porzellanmanufaktur (Royal Porcelain Factory), Deutsches Rundfunkmuseum (German Broadcasting Museum), Deutsche Kinemathek (German Film Archive), Medizinhistorisches Museum of Charité (Medical History Museum of Charité hospital), Friedrichstadtpalast (Berlin Show Theatre), Archiv Circus Busch (Circus Busch Archive), Scheringianum (Museum of Berlin company Schering) and URANIA Berlin e.V. (Berlin scientific and educational society).
