Kleist museum

Frankfurt (Oder)

The Kleist Museum is dedicated to the life and work of the poet Heinrich von Kleist (1777-1811), who was born in Frankfurt (Oder). The inauguration of the "new house for Kleist" on October 17, 2013, with the support of the European Union, the German federal government, the state of Brandenburg and the Kleist city of Frankfurt (Oder), marked the successful conclusion of years of struggle for a modern museum extension. On now more than doubled exhibition space we present Rätsel. Struggles. Breaks. The Kleist Exhibition. In the new temporary exhibition rooms, we regularly invite visitors to interesting exhibitions on the reception of Kleist as well as to literary, art and history exhibitions of our partners.
The Kleist Museum was established in 1969 in the building of the former Garrison School. In the modern, light-flooded and spacious museum annex opened in October 2013, which was placed alongside the beautiful baroque individual monument, there are now finally appropriate storage and significantly improved presentation facilities for the more than 34,000 holdings in the library and collections - currently the most comprehensive documentation on Heinrich von Kleist and his literary-historical environment. The museum remains committed to the legacy of the poets Ewald Christian and Franz Alexander von Kleist as well as Caroline and Friedrich de la Motte Fouqué. As a cultural memorial of national importance, the Kleist Museum is listed in the Federal Government's Blue Book.
