The museum of the city of Marsberg wants to reflect the homeland, the formation of the landscape, the history of the earth, the finds that were made in our area, the history and especially the fate and achievements of the people.
The museum of local history wants to be a place of experience, where history comes alive, touches people, makes them sympathize and sometimes even astonishes them.
In a special way, the local history museum also addresses children. Dressed in medieval clothing, they explore the museum and go on a discovery tour of historic Obermarsberg.
An excavation field lets them become archaeologically active, as we will learn.
Significant for the Marsberg area are the history of the earth, mining and the history and thus the development of the town.
These three focal points can be connected and related to each other in a unique way.
The knowledge about the history of the earth with its mineral resources and the formation of the landscape help to see the history of mining, settlement and town in context and to show the mutual conditionality exemplarily.
