About the Museum
The Reinickendorf Museum is housed in an old village school in Hermsdorf, a site that still retains its historical characteristics. A craft room, a woodman's room, a Biedermeier room and a staff kitchen from the 1920s illustrate how this northern district of Berlin developed from a rural village and day-trip destination for city dwellers through the industrial age and its eventual incorporation into Berlin. A new room created in 2013 examines Reinickendorf's role in Nazi-era armament production as well as the post-war French occupation and the consequences of Germany' division on the area. The work study of Wladimir Lindenberg, a doctor, philosopher, artist and writer who died in 1997, is also reconstructed here.
