Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - Department of History

History museums

The range of museums on offer in Berlin is as vast as it is diverse. Museums give us access to materials from the past that are of historical significance. Thanks to museums, we can deepen our understanding and gain new perspectives by looking at artifacts in the flesh. By doing an internship or working on the side as a student staff member, you can see what it’s like working as a historian in the traditional field.
