Rediscover the museum

What is actually a museum? Who decides which objects are shown in the museum? How are these objects expressed?

And what does the museum have to do with me? The newly conceived [rehearsal] rooms in the Märkisches Museum deal precisely with these questions. Two themes give an opportunity: Berlin in the Middle Ages and Berlin's everyday life and childhood around 1900. Explore Berlin as a city model, press once as the great-great-grandparents, try out writing instruments of different epochs or listen to the stories of the inhabitants of a typical Berlin tenement house the [sample] rooms is the title at the same time program.

If you want, you can create your own miniature exhibition, which is then shown in the museum. Personal Berlin objects are also welcome here. For a short time, these individual stories will form part of the [rehearsal] rooms and thus part of the exhibition at the Märkisches Museum. Visitors from all walks of life can thus individually trace the themes and tasks of a museum.

The [rehearsal] rooms are aimed at all museum visitors - families, groups or school classes as well as individualists. There is ample space to work and experiment, as well as to stay and relax. Arrangements can be booked upon request.
