The Reinickendorf Museum is housed in an old village school in Hermsdorf, a site that still retains its historical characteristics. A craft room, a woodman's room, a Biedermeier room and a staff kitchen from the 1920s illustrate how this northern district of Berlin developed from a rural village and day-trip destination for city dwellers through the industrial age and its eventual incorporation into Berlin. A new room created in 2013 examines Reinickendorf's role in Nazi-era armament production as well as the post-war French occupation and the consequences of Germany' division on the area. The work study of Wladimir Lindenberg, a doctor, philosopher, artist and writer who died in 1997, is also reconstructed here.
The area's more distant history is also depicted here. Visitors can enjoy a Palaeolithic storage pit from the Tegel river bed in the Prehistoric and Proto-historic Archaeology room, while the "Room of Six Villages" provides insight into the development of the mediaeval villages of Tegel, Hermsdorf, Lübars, Heiligensee, Wittenau and Reinickendorf. On the grounds behind the museum, a Germanic farmstead has been reconstructed consisting of a long house, a weaving room and a granary. The museum hosts two to three special exhibitions each year.
