The Marzahn-Hellersdorf Museum (Bezirksmuseum Marzahn-Hellersdorf) is a modern, lively museum devoted to examining and promoting the history of the Berlin borough of Marzahn-Hellersdorf, including its constituent districts of Biesdorf, Hellersdorf, Kaulsdorf, Mahlsdorf and Marzahn. With the help of changing exhibitions, tours, educational projects, events and publications, the museum is eager to inspire visitors of all ages to learn more about the multifaceted history of the borough, which goes all the way from the first human settlements in the region over 11,000 years ago to today's large-scale housing projects.
The Marzahn-Hellersdorf Museum is located in a former primary school on the village green known as the "Marzahner Anger." A number of special exhibitions take place here on a variety of themes relating to the borough's history. Interested visitors can also access the regional historical archives if they make a prior appointment.
The second house, the former Heinz Lüdecke Library, was opened in June 2012. It is home to the exhibition "Marzahn-Hellersdorf from the Beginning to 1970," which forms the first section of the permanent exhibition on the history of the borough and its neighbourhoods.
