Das Museum Pankow - Standort Prenzlauer Allee befindet sich im Kultur- und Bildungszentrum Sebastian Haffner in einer 1886 gebauten Schule. Das Museum ging aus dem Prenzlauer Berg Museum, dem Panke-Museum, der Chronik Pankow und dem Stadtgeschichtlichen Museum Weißensee hervor. Weitere Standorte befinden sich in der Heynstraße und Dunckerstraße.
Today marks the 75th anniversary since the US dropped an atomic bomb on the residents of Hiroshima killing 70,000 people outright and further tens of thousand from subsequent radiation poisoning, starvation and injuries. Between the bombing of Nagasaki on the 6 August and Hiroshima on the 9 August over 230,000 people died.
Visiting the Peace Park and surviving A-Bomb tower is profound. The museum is a testament to the lives lost and suffering. Never have I felt so aghast at what humanity can inflict than seeing evidence of total destruction including so many innocent children. The museum was absolutely silent despite hundreds of people passing through, as we all felt and shared similar feelings.

Leonardo da Vinci died in Clos Lucé, Amboise on May 2, 1519.
His life can be defined by his eagerness to learn and experiment on the quest to achieve excellency; embodying the values of the Renaissance and the Humanist movement of the 15th century.
His ingenious, based on his mastery and creativity, is regarded as the epitome of human talent; spanning different areas of knowledge and transcending the test of time.
To commemorate 500 years of his death, various museums held different exhibitions and retrospectives to celebrate the work of the Renaissance man.
After 10 years of preparation, the Musée du Louvre unveiled their blockbuster exhibition in October 2019 presenting over 160 works of the artist and his circle, including loans from institutions in Italy, Russia, Germany, France, the UK and the US.
In an unexpected and refreshing choice, the portrait of this woman —likely from the court of Milan— was the chosen work used for the exhibition’s advertising campaign.
Erroneously renamed “La Belle Ferronnière” during a 18th century inventory, her identity has also been the object of much investigation just as the other infamous Florentine woman.
