All that glitters is goldNew Year's resolutions are made quickly – and forgotten again almost as quickly. The recently completed total renovation, extension and redesign of the museum of the Upper Bavarian town of Erding shows that many a resolution can really be achieved if you constantly and enthusiastically keep to the matter at hand.
The museum, which, with its history of more than 150 years, is amongst the oldest municipal museums in Bavaria, has not only got the renovation of the existing museum building and the addition of an extension off the ground in the past eight years, but has also completely reworked its permanent exhibition.
The “golden craft” is presented in the architecturally striking annexe with its glossy golden façade with new departments on the tradition-steeped crafts of loden production and bell casting in Erding. This also houses a new spacious entrance area and additional rooms for events and educational activities.
On the ground floor of the old building, the “Archaeology” and “Town.Development” departments provide insight into the history of Erding and the surrounding area from the stone age to the present day. One focus is on the dynamic development of Erding in recent decades, which has continued undiminished since the airport was opened in the Erdinger Moos in 1992. On the first floor of the museum building, the departments “Everyday Stories from Erding” and “Art and Artists”, which opened just a few weeks ago, await visitors with interesting presentations and questions. Throughout the museum, there are also areas with activities for the visitors.
