Guided museum tours
From 1 April 2016 on, Mitte Museum will be closed for two years.
Extensive refurbishment and modernisation work is being carried out at the listed museum building, which was built as the 26th municipal school from 1864 - 1866 and is today one of the oldest communal schools in Berlin. The guided museum tour "Berlin history for school forms" unfortunately cannot be offered during this period. Alternatively, we recommend the city tours for children.
What was school like 100 years ago? Museum educator Oliver Goldacker guides a school form through the permanent exhibition.
Who hasn't ever wanted to go on board a time machine to be taken back into the past? Mitte Museum makes it possible! We travel back in time into historic Berlin, delving into the world of a child in Berlin around the year 1900.
How did people live at that time in the districts of Wedding or Tiergarten? What did a workman's dwelling look like? Which games did children play? And did they have to attend school at that time at all? These as well as many other interesting questions will be discussed with the students, comparing the experience of children’s life today with that of children from 100 years ago.
The guided tours are suitable for any type of groups. Upon consultation with our museum educator, Mr. Goldacker, they can be coordinated to fit specific curriculum topics.
Dates: Tuesdays and Thursdays by appointment from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Duration: approx. 1.5 hours
