Moosburg's museum of local history
The Heimatmuseum (museum of local history) was
founded by the school headmaster Ludwig Weh in 1937. After
having occupied some rooms in the town hall it moved into its
own building in 1975: the former girls' school in
Kastulusplatz behind the Minster and St John's Church.
The collections comprise archeological finds from different periods: Stone Age, Bronze Age, Hallstatt, La-Tène, Celtic, Roman and Bavarian periods. There are also printing plates for coloured cloth, historical weapons and a collection of religious art: e.g. sculptures, guild poles and votive gifts. The recent history of Moosburg ist represented by models of the POW camp Stalag VII A and the Stalag memorial fountain. Some items remind of the Moosburg engineer Georg Hummel who invented the electricity meter.
