The borough of Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg is fascinating to more than just history buffs: it is equally interesting for its juxtaposition of cultures and nationalities in a small urban area and for its mesh of different experiences and lifestyles. The Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg Museum documents the history of the two boroughs: it emerged from the fusion of the Kreuzberg Museum and the Heimatmuseum Friedrichshain. Visitors also have access to a comprehensive archive covering both neighbourhoods.
The museum presents changing exhibitions on local and regional history, usually focusing on current issues and in particular on immigration, industrial development, commercial development and urban development. On the first floor, there is a permanent exhibition on the protest movement and urban regeneration in Kreuzberg SO 36 created by all the stakeholders involved. In the exhibition "Ortsgespräche" ("Local Calls"), Kreuzbergers and Friedrichshainers tell their personal stories on-site in the borough.  
On the ground floor, school classes are invited to use an historical typesetting machine and printing press. For school children, the museum offers workshops and the "XBerg-Tag" ("Kreuzberg Day") where young Kreuzbergers lead tours through the neighbourhood.
