The history of Munich Stadtmuseum
The Munich Stadtmuseum was founded in 1888 on the initiative of the city archivist Ernst von Destouches. It was initially designed as a museum of local history. In addition to the originally mainly graphic holdings, other objects were added over the years: furniture, fashion and everyday objects. Thus the museum grew more and more and today it is the largest municipal museum in the whole of Germany. Some of the rooms in which the Munich City Museum is located are centuries-old buildings, such as the former armory, which was built in 1500.
The Film Museum has been part of the Munich Stadtmuseum since 1963. A wide range of films, from early black-and-white classics to modern independent films and documentaries are archived here, restored and made accessible to the public in various film series. The Film Museum shows a changing program of films every day, sometimes even with panel discussions and a supporting program.
