Museum Friedland is not finished yet…
Now with the permanent exhibition set up in the historic station building, two further development phases are planned over the coming years.
The site between the historic station and the transit camp will be transformed into a modern visitor, media and documentary centre set in a landscaped park. The centre will provide exhibition space of around 800 square metres as well as seminar, storage, office rooms and a library. For a project of this size the planning and building phase will probably take about four years.
The third component in this development is the Akademie Friedland. It is intended to supplement the permanent exhibition in the historic station building and the topics dealt with in greater depth in the modern visitor centre. As a research and international youth centre, Akademie Friedland expresses, in particular, this new institution's dual focus on both the past and present. Here at Friedland, as a historically important location, this project seeks to establish an innovative forum offering a range of formats for current historical, social and cultural studies, research and debates.
