Museen am meer – museums by the sea

museen am meerEight collections and museums in Kiel discovered the combined potential – not only their special position at the Kiel Fjord, but especially their long scientific traditions connect the museums by the sea. Starting in Kiel the museum studies and science communication evolved in Germany and this is still evident in the collections from five centuries. The nationally and internationally significant collections and exhibitions shape the museum site Kiel and make it a special destination, for cruise ship passengers as well as for people interested in art and culture. Imbedded in the maritime flair of the harbour town, many of the historical buildings themselves are of outstanding importance.
The cooperation museen am meer organises attractive special events and thereby realizes new close associations between the different museums. A special goal of museen am meer is to enable new and surprising points of view, by designing new exhibition topics interdisciplinary and across different museums.
