About the Museum
The magnificent manor house in Berlin's Neukölln district was built at the beginning of the 18th century on the site of a medieval half-timbered house and was a mansion owned by high-ranking Prussian court officials and state ministers. In 1971, Schloss Britz was listed as a historical monument. The district Neukölln restored the castle from 1985 to 1988 and reconstructed the associated park. Since 1989, the cultural offer has been guaranteed by the Kulturstiftung Schloss Britz. The castle now houses museum rooms, in which a permanent exhibition presents the "representative living culture of the Wilhelminian era". Special exhibitions in close cooperation with international museums, as well as concerts and readings with renowned artists offer visitors a varied program. In the summer months, the concert series takes place on the open-air stage on the estate.
