Museums

The Kaliß Regional Museum in the former village school houses the local history and geology collection of teacher and local historian Hans-Joachim Bötefür (d.). Visitors get an insight into the geology of the Wanzeberg as well as into the history of the paper mill Neu Kaliß and the brown coal mining around Malliß.

The focus of the museum's work is the geology of the Wanzeberg as a regional feature. Rich deposits of gypsum, clay, salt and lignite meant that mining had been practiced in the region around Malliß since 1304. Especially lignite mining is presented in the exhibition by means of various exhibits and models. Another exhibition is dedicated to the history of the Neu Kaliß fine paper mill. Documents such as patent specifications, plans and drawings as well as photos bear witness to the development of the mill. The exhibition is supplemented by old inventory. In another section of the regional museum, countless fossils found in the region are on display, as well as archaeological finds such as Stone Age tools, vessels and other excavation finds. Among them are also remains of the entrance to the Marienstollen, which were uncovered during restoration work in 1996.
There are constantly changing exhibitions on the upper floor of the regional museum. Here local artists give an insight into their creative activity.
