History of culture and daily life in the Berlin district

The Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf Museum, founded in 1987, is dedicated to researching and displaying not only the district’s local everyday history but also the cultural history of Berlin. The museum has been housed in the Oppenheim Villa since January 2012, which Margarete Oppenheim, née Mendelssohn, and Otto Georg Oppenheim had built in 1881 as a summer residence. The new location is displaying for the first time the art collection of the then autonomous town of Charlottenburg, started in 1908. The collection primarily consists of works from the 19th century and the Berlin Secession period. Special exhibitions will take up themes connected with the history of the district. Children and youngsters will be able to discover and explore interesting subjects in the “Villa O. von 4-18”.

A permanent exhibition under the title “Von der Residenz zur City West” (From the Residence to City West) is planned, for which a workshop exhibition with ten topics on it already provides a perspective. The permanent exhibition will trace the history of the district from its medieval roots, via the residence of Queen consort Sophie Charlotte, wife of Frederick I of Prussia, and the affluent Charlottenburg of the Imperial days, to Kurfürstendamm as the shop window of the West.
