Migration Moves the City

The Münchner Stadtmuseum and the Munich City Archives (Stadtarchiv München) are currently involved in “Migration Moves the City”, a joint project to investigate the influence of migration on the development of Munich and its lasting impact on the city.



In September 2011, a fixed-term research project was established in collaboration with the Office of Provenance Investigation and Research in Berlin. The investigation of artefacts of uncertain provenance will encompass the museum’s collections of paintings, drawings and graphic art, plastic art, arts & crafts, coins and medals, textiles and musical instruments.
