"Sustainability Challenges"

International Conference on the Future of Transport Museums

Featuring all aspects of technology is one of the most important objectives of the Deutsches Technikmuseum / German Museum of Technology. However transport history plays a key role here, as emphasized by the Berlin airlift plane on the museum’s rooftop and the reused locomotive maintenance premises.

We are therefore happy to welcome the International Association of Transport Museums (IATM) in September.

On 23rd September international experts from 32 countries will discuss problems and perspectives of transport museums, focusing on sustainability.
Redeveloping industrial heritage is only one form of sustainability. Other aspects are: developing collections while space is an ever decreasing resource, or social sustainability, which includes addressing new target groups, e.g. people with learning disabilities or the visually impaired.

Further legs of the conference will be the Communication Museum at Berlin and Dresden´s transport museum.
The conference will be held in English.
