School Museum

First day of school.

Education in times past

The School Museum's new permanent collection, a cooperation between the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg and the City of Nuremberg, opened in 2008.

Historical classroom

On the basement level, on the side of the Museum Lane devoted to everyday life and leisure, you can find an authentic classroom from the turn of the century. The presentation "School life in 1910" is offered here on most days. Today’s pupils are surprised when they experience for themselves the rigors of education in their grandparents' generation. A staircase connects the classroom to the School Museum.
