Special Exhibitions

In accordance with the character of the museum and its extraordinary content, the architect and honorary director of the museum, Ruarí O’Brien, has designed two new, custom-made modules to be used for special exhibitions: “Luise” and “Lotte”. These provide a further unique and effective platform, through which a diverse range of thematic exhibitions can be presented within the museum.

The manufacture of both modules was made possible through donations by visitors to the museum, as well as the kind support of the publishing houses Cecilie Dressler Verlag and Atrium Verlag.

Every year a new special exhibition is opened during the Erich Kästner Museum Festival in February. It can be visited until the end of January in the following year and the content is based on the theme chosen that year by the Erich Kästner Museum.
