When it opened in 1908, the Märkisches Museum in Köllnischer Park was the first building in the world to be conceived specifically as a city museum. The museum is now set to undergo extensive renovation work.

Last chance

The Märkisches Museum will remain open until 30th December 2022 before closing for the coming years for renovation work. This is your last chance to visit the museum in its current architectural state!


Since autumn 2016, the Märkisches Museum has been undergoing a makeover for the 21st century. The renovated museum will feature expanded space for special exhibitions and presentations as well as a completely revised permanent exhibition on Berlin’s history.
