smac – State Museum of Archaeology ChemnitzBack to Projects list
- Chemnitz, Germany
The Saxon State Museum “Haus der Archäologie“ was opened in the former department store Schocken in Chemnitz. The famous Mendelsohn building was renovated and adapted for museum functions. The three-storey permanent exhibition spans from early history to Saxon regional history. Therefore the disciplines of archaeology and history are illustratively combined and the visitor’s experience is focused on through a variety of fascinating highlights. The time-dynamic model of Saxony, which opens the exhibition-tour and vertically connects the three exhibition floors, represents the state of Saxony as a three-dimensional landscape. Interactive model parts of the country move through the different floors and establish a visual context to the respective topics of the three levels.
