The city makes history!

1:26 minutes

In the Ephraim-Palais Museum, we present its newly revised permanent exhibition “BerlinZEIT – Die Stadt macht Geschichte!”

Along formative periods and highlighting specific years the exhibition takes visitors on a journey of discovery through eight centuries – from the founding of Berlin to the present day and beyond. With numerous original objects from the city’s past Berlin is presented in an easily understandable and compact way as a city of diversity and openness, but also as a city of ruptures and radical change.


The reason for the presentation of “BerlinZEIT” in the Museum Ephraim-Palais is the comprehensive renovation of the Märkisches Museum, the traditional location of the Stadtmuseum Berlin for permanent exhibitions on Berlin’s history, which will take several years. Once the modernisation of the neighbouring Marinehaus has been completed, both buildings will form the heart of a museum and creative quarter in Köllnischer Park in a few years’ time.
