Exkkursionen The Reformation of 1517 took place not only in Wittenberg, on the Wartburg, or in front of the Imperial Diet. The Reformation had sweeping consequences for the entire Christian world, consequences that can also be found in the Tecklenburger Land, in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Osnabrück, and in the Diocese of Münster. We are therefore setting off on a search for traces to sites connected with the Reformation in our home region.

Kat. 04 w 677 variant foto The cabinet exhibition follows the tracks of Martin Luther. It presents printed matter from the then-new spirit of the times – from the first printed bible, the “Gutenberg Bible”, which was still written in the Latin language, to the first Bible printed in the German language prior to Luther’s new translation, the “Mentelin Bible”, to the final version by Luther, the “Luther Bible”.

Family Businesses as a Phenomenon

Family Businesses as a Phenomenon

Margarete steiff bei der arbeit  archiv der margarete steiff gmbh The exhibition 'Family Businesses as a Phenomenon: Insights – Overviews' approaches the subject of family businesses from a novel perspective – allowing business figures and their families to 'speak' for themselves: letters, memoirs, wills, and business protocols from the late 18th century to the 1960s afford insights into the motives behind the actions of businesspeople and their family members. In 25 very personal stories, taken from 13 different family businesses, the goals, desires, and obligations of the various stakeholders come to life and prove to be surprisingly contemporary.
