CURRENT EXHIBITION: I come from here – Martin Luther and Eisleben
The exhibition in Luther’s Birthplace traces the Luther family. Around 250 exhibits tell of the origins of the Reformer, the mining activity of his father, the piety and spirituality of the Middle Ages and of Luther’s baptism. It was the most important event linking Luther to Eisleben. A central exhibit is, therefore, the baptismal font dating from 1518. The family home has been recreated on the ground floor of the Birthplace. The exhibited furniture replicates historical models and was made using mediaeval tools. The so-called “Schöne Saal” on the top floor has been used since 1693 as a special place for worshipping Luther. Portraits of Luther, Melanchthon and the electors of Saxony are on display here.
