The school museum of the Saarland in Ottweiler offers exhibits on several floors from 1000 years of school history. Many classes and visitors enjoy annually the guided tours offered by the museum or explore the showcases and sections on their own. Constantly changing exhibition offers provide an alternative for people that have already visited the museum before, while the Residenzstadt Ottweiler supplies the historical 'ambience' for a unique trip into the history of schooling.
The building of the school museum was established around 1800 as residential house. A renovation and a change took place in 1905, so that a domestic science school could be established therein. After the war it served again as pure residential house. For the museum the building condition of 1905 was restored to a large extent.
