Museology and historical museum studies

This website is under construction. More content will be available soon.

Due to the employment structure at the Institut für Museumsforschung, this area can still only be researched through externally funded projects. The DFG project ‘Die Entwicklung historischer Museumsinszenierungen im 19. Jahrhundert auf wissenschaftlicher Grundlage am Beispiel des Alten und des Neuen Museums’ (The scientific development of historical museum presentations in the 19th century, based on the examples of the Altes Museum and the Neues Museum) has been successfully completed and published in the series Berliner Schriften zur Museumsforschung (Berlin writings on museum research).
