Eilenburg town museum in the traditional “Roter Hirsch” building

In the traditional “Roten Hirsch” (“red deer”) building, Eilenburg's museum chronicles the eventful history of the town on the Mulde, which dates back more than 1,055 years. Artefacts from Eilenburg’s past, from the first settlement findings to the present day, are on display in the upper floor of this erstwhile nobleman’s house, partially reflecting the ambiance of the time. The attic is home to an impressive collection of antique dolls, dolls’ houses and their inhabitants. In addition, an original classroom from the 1920s has been recreated in a side wing. On request, school lessons can be held here just as they were in the olden days, which are of particular interest for class trips and school classes.

The huge underground corridors are also managed by the museum. Guided tours for schools parties, children’s birthdays, adult groups or mixed groups are always possible by arrangement.
