Founded in 1909 on the basis of the collections of the Verein für die Geschichte Leipzigs (Leipzig Historical Society), the Stadtgeschichtliches Museum Leipzig is today an association of several museums, each of which focuses on different subjects. Seen as a whole, they give a complete and detailed picture of the city’s cultural history. The museum put a lot of effort to bring the information in English too. Descriptions however are in German.

With the use of simple English words you can see them all.
