History

The main building was designed by Fritz Schumacher and constructed between 1914 and 1922.

The museum courtyard was damaged from the great fire in 1842 and fully restored in 1995. A glass dome over the inner courtyard was completed in 1989.

The Hamburg Observatory occupied the area at the Museum from 1825 to 1912 before being moved to Bergedorf. The area was part of the old city wall, part of Bastion Henricus, a baroque fortification built between 1616 and 1625.[1] The museum was formerly located at the Johanneum school.

The museum became state-owned under the direction of Otto Lauffe, though this was changed back in 1999.

The museum adopted the name hamburgmuseum, and initials hm, in 2006. In 2008 the museum runs a program called hm freunde (Society of friends of the museum of Hamburg history).[2]
