Twenty years of museum association in Oberspreewald-Lausitz - the district museums start the new year with a record number of visitors

Category : Current

The museums of the district of Oberspreewald-Lausitz welcomed almost 165,000 guests from near and far in the past year 2019. This makes the museum association, which with the Open Air Museum Lehde, the Spreewald Museum Lübbenau, the Lusatian Art Collection and the Senftenberg Castle and Fortress complex unites four very different museums in two tourist regions, one of the most visited museums in Brandenburg and starts a special anniversary year with a record result. In 2020, the museums will celebrate their twentieth anniversary as an association under the auspices of the district. Since the founding of the museum association, visitor numbers have doubled and show that four museums united under one roof is a recipe for success. "The individual museums already look back on a long tradition, for example the Spreewald Museum in Lübbenau was founded in 1899 and the Senftenberg Castle Museum in 1907," explains museum director Stefan Heinz. "As an association under one roof, the museums are attractive places for local visitors and tourists even today and can face the challenges of the future together."
In the anniversary year, visitors can look forward to several highlights at once. After the great success in Senftenberg, the special exhibition about the Olsen Gang will be hosted by the Spreewald Museum in Lübbenau from May 2020. In the summer, a new attraction awaits guests at the Freilandmuseum Lehde. In a covered gallery, the museum will present historical agricultural technology and large-scale equipment from its collection directly on the farms. There will be a completely new exhibition section in Senftenberg Castle from May 2020. "What profession would you have taken up in 1756? Who would have been your neighbours in 1909? On a journey through the town's history, we 'beam' visitors to five special years from four centuries." the museum director arouses curiosity. "We let the historical inhabitants of the small town in Lower Lusatia have their say in the new permanent exhibition "Ackerbürger, Stadtbürger, Staatsbürger - Kosmos einer Kleinstadt"." With valuable objects from Senftenberg's town history, interactive media stations and the stories of historical personalities, the exhibition offers a special "time travel experience" for children and adults alike.
