School Museum

"Education for all – 500 years of school history" – That was the theme of the March 31, 2008, grand re-opening of the School Museum, an institution of the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg in the Museum of Industrial Culture.

The School Museum is a cooperation between the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg and the City of Nuremberg. The redesign links the School Museum and the Museum of Industrial Culture both spatially – the museum tour begins in the School Museum – and through the key concept of education as a "resource" that is and always has been just as important as iron, steel, and petroleum.
