The Märkisches Museum will undergo extensive renovations over the coming years. When it reopens, the museum and the neighbouring Marinehaus will form the heart of the vibrant Museums- und Kreativquartier am Köllnischen Park (Museum and Creative Quarter at Köllnischer Park). After being closed for construction work and renovated in accordance with its historic status, Köllnischer Park was reopened on October 2021.
Marinehaus to become a site for collaboration
While the renovated Märkisches Museum – whose tower will once again be accessible for the first time since the Second World War – will house a permanent exhibition on the history of Berlin and provide spaces for special exhibitions and educational events, Marinehaus will house workshops, provide work spaces for cultural workers, event rooms, presentation and communication areas, and will feature an expanded culinary offering.
Creative engagement with the issues of our time
The interdisciplinary museum and creative quarter will focus on socially relevant topics and collaborate with other think tanks in the city with the aim of finding creative solutions to the issues the city faces concerning development, social spaces, diversity, migration and integration.
