The Marcher Museum is the headquarters of the Stiftung Stadtmuseum Berlin, the Landesmuseum für Kultur und Geschichte Berlin, in the Mitte district of Berlin, close to the River Spree.
The prehistory of the museum began with the accelerated development of Berlin from a somewhat sleepy residence to the industrial and big city. A strong civic engagement had led to the founding of the Marcher Provincial Museum in 1874. For its growing collections, a museum was built around the penultimate turn of the century.
The Marcher Museum, constructed by the architect and town councilor Ludwig Hoffmann in the years 1899 to 1908, was the world’s first building specially designed as a city museum.
