Collection concept

The 'Magdeburger Börde' as a natural area and its historical development are the guideline for the museum and thus also for the orientation of its collection profile. Objects from or with direct reference to the region can be a meaningful extension for the collection.

Among the museums of the Börde district, the Börde Museum Burg Ummendorf has as a special work and exhibition focus the task of presenting life in the local rural area, the history of agriculture and thus also of industrialization in the region. Related to this is the cultural history and today's use of useful plants. The central example here is the sugar beet.

As museum staff, we regularly scrutinize our holdings for gaps or important additions.
