The Museum Karl-Marx-Haus will remain closed for the time being from 14 March up to and including 19 April 2020 due to the increasing spread of the corona virus Covid-19.
We ask for your understanding.
Karl Marx’s birthplace, built around 1727 as a baroque residential home, hosts an exhibition dedicated to the man, the nineteenth century critic of society and capitalism as well as tracing the global legacy of his ideas into the present day. For families, individual visitors, school classes or away days: plan your visit to the Karl-Marx-House. Take part in our guided tours and workshops, explore the house or dwell in the garden.
The museum is open 359 days a year and offers a vast variety of events on contemporary history and current topics, including the foundation of the Weimar Republic, digitalisation, good labour, etc.
