Today is history tomorrow

Often it is the everyday things that make history vivid, awaken memories and inspire...

In the historic "New Town Hall" directly at the New Market is the City History Museum. The collection, which was started in 1930, vividly documents the city's development since the founding of the first settlements until today. Since the Waren townscape is the result of an economic boom in the last third of the 19th century, many exhibits date from the so-called "Gründerzeit". The exhibition focuses on the way of life of the people: How were people living, working and having fun in other times? What influence did political developments have on everyday life and the cityscape? How did people furnish their homes? And since when has Waren (Müritz) actually been a resort town?

Other questions and special aspects of the town history and contemporary history are also illuminated in interesting special exhibitions.
The preserved council scales, the cell of the citizens' obedience and the historical workrooms illustrate the history of the house.

The technical monument of the historical tile pottery as a branch of the museum is open in the season from mid-May to mid-September.

Guided tours and various offers for groups can be arranged upon request. Unfortunately, the building is not accessible.

Childhoods in Mecklenburg 1945 to 1952

"Between 1945 and 1949, more than four million Germans arrived in the Soviet Occupation Zone, forced to leave their homes in Southeastern and Eastern Europe as a result of World War II. About one million remained in Mecklenburg and the part of Pomerania west of the Oder River. More than a third of them were children.... At a time when our society is once again confronted with the arrival of refugees, albeit under completely different circumstances, the exhibition aims to make a contribution to the preservation of a past that lies only a human age in the form of pictures, texts and loans from museums and private collections. ... Children on the run - this is a chapter that began and did not end with the German children from eastern and southeastern Europe after World War II" (from the accompanying text).

Opening on Wednesday, March 22, 2023, at 5:00 p.m. / Talk and reading with sociologist Uta Rüchel : Verschwiegene Erbschaften. On the traces of memory culture in the present.

an exhibition of the Mecklenberg Foundation and the Landeszentrale für politische Bildung M-V, free admission.
