Research Projects


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.



In 2012, the Münchner Stadtmuseum and the Munich City Archives (Stadtarchiv München) formed a partnership with the Institute for Cultural Anthropology/European Ethnology at Georg-August-Universität, Göttingen, and the Institute of Social and Cultural Anthropology/ European Ethnology at Ludwig Maximilians Universität, Munich. The aim of this partnership is to make the topic of migration more accessible and develop new and innovative approaches to collecting, archiving, exhibiting and communicating.
