School Museum

The School Museum is a co-operation of the Erlangen-Nürnberg University and the City of Nuremberg. The new concept links up the School Museum and the Museum for Industrial Culture, both in space (the tour of the Museum of Industrial Culture starts in the School Museum) and in the basic concept: education is seen as a "resource" which - even in the past - has been as important as iron, steel and mineral oil.

Nuremberg's history provides numerous examples of this. As early as the Middle Ages and the early modern age, Nuremberg had an excellent school system. In the 19th century, education and new types of school provided the decisive precondition for Nuremberg's rise to becoming the industrial heart of Bavaria. In the future, the concept of education as a "resource" will permeate the entire Museum for Industrial Culture, illustrating the close links between the Museum for Industrial Culture and the School Museum.
