The Bavarian School Museum Ichenhausen is dedicated to the history and development of the school system over several thousand years.
Tour of the Bavarian School Museum
The beginning is made by a space that explains the transfer of knowledge in the still scriptless prehistoric age. The first educations in the written cultures of the Egyptians and Sumerians then open the school tour through history. Then it goes on from antiquity and the Middle Ages to modern times to today's school system and the importance of computers.
A special highlight are the historically furnished classrooms. Here children can discover what it was like to go to school in (primeval) grandpa's times and the older generation can indulge in memories. The classrooms illustrate everyday school life in the Weimar Republic and at the turn of the century into the 20th century.
The permanent exhibition "Die Jüdische Schule in Bayern. From the Enlightenment to the Present". The museum is thus dedicating itself to an important topic for the region, as Ichenhausen was once the largest Jewish rural community in Bavaria.
