In this exhibition area, facets of cultural life in Hamburg from the 17th century to today are brought into focus. Noble costumes and accessories from the middle classes of the 18th and 19th centuries from Hamburg as well as the colorful clothes of the 20th century show fashionable trends and social zeitgeist in the Hanseatic city. In the 17th and 18th centuries Hamburg was also the center for music and theater in north Germany. Here many instrument makers worked, here was the first public opera on German soil, and here the Hamburg experienced the most important composers of their time. Exhibits to the stages of the city, paintings by Hamburg personalities and unique pieces such as the harpsichord by Carl Conrad Fleischer from 1716 or the oldest surviving trombone of the world from 1587 reflect this part of Hamburg's cultural history. A special highlight is the largely wooden model of the Solomonic The first sanctuary of the Jews in Jerusalem, built under King Solomon (around 965 - 926 BC), is the temple. This is also where the Hamburg Lukaspokal from 1857 can be found. It is one of the last material testimonies of the Hamburg Artists' Association of 1832 and represents a central chapter of Hamburg's cultural history of the 19th century.
