The central site of Museum Pankow is found in a building located at Prenzlauer Allee 227 built in 1886 as a municipal school. In an exhibition hall, the museum presents theme-oriented special exhibitions on select aspects of the borough's history, often in cooperation with external partners. In the main building, visitors can see an exhibition on the history of the school building, another exhibition on the Jewish School on Rykestraße as well as a photo exhibition on the era between 1949 and 1990. The latest permanent exhibition is devoted to the opposition movement and the upheavals in Prenzlauer Berg in 1989/90.
Museum Pankow has an extensive archive and many collection items on the history of the districts of Prenzlauer Berg, Weißensee and Pankow, including photos, documents, postcards, maps, plans and newspaper clippings. In addition, archive users have access to a regional-historical reference library. Museum-educational events are organized together with schools and other cooperation partners, including student project weeks, event series and lectures. These offerings centre mostly on an active search for traces and thus the active appropriation of history and urban space.
