The Marzahn-Hellersdorf District Museum sees itself as a modern, living museum that researches and conveys the history of the Marzahn-Hellersdorf district and its districts of Biesdorf, Hellersdorf, Kaulsdorf, Mahlsdorf and Marzahn. Through changing exhibitions, guided tours, museum educational projects, events and publications, we want to encourage visitors of all ages to engage with the diverse history of the district, which ranges from the first human settlement in our region 11,000 years ago to modern large settlements.

House 1 of the Marzahn-Hellersdorf District Museum is located in the former VILLAGE SCHOOL on the Marzahner Anger. Special exhibitions on various topics in the district's history take place there; interested visitors can also use the regional history archive by appointment.

The permanent exhibition on the history of the region, the district and its districts opened in House 2 of the museum on June 17, 2012. Here, visitors learn about the important and continuous settlement history that goes back thousands of years, about the emergence of the district's villages in the late Middle Ages and the rapid transformation in the 20th century through the housing construction program of the GDR, which only existed for 40 years.

The museum works with various partners, including institutions from the district, the Marzahn-Hellersdorf Local History Association and the Berlin Regional Museum Working Group. Since the museum's lighting was converted to LED technology in 2021, climate-relevant emissions in the culture department have been reduced by a total of 16 tons of CO² equivalent annually.
