Project text:

Kiel’s City and Maritime Museum (Kieler Stadt- und Schifffahrtsmuseum) uses numerous exhibits to vividly relate the history of Kiel as a harbour, naval centre and shipbuilding site. The impressive Fish Market, built in 1909 and now a listed building located right on the Kieler Förde, is not only a museum but one of the city’s most emblematic buildings. The building’s interior, with its expansive openness beneath the arched roof that is reminiscent in shape to a conical buoy, offers a bright and spacious room for the new exhibition concept. In addition to a new colour scheme, its features include a presentation of new thematic fields, the installation of new display cabinets, newly developed text and media elements as well as accompanying digital media such as audio guides and touchscreens. The project was completed throughout bearing in mind the requirements for an inclusive exhibition.
