The Krupp Historical Exhibition in the Kleines Haus (Small House) at Villa Hügel covers several subjects: On the ground floor, the exhibition presents the Krupp family and the Villa Hügel buildings and park. Two rooms are dedicated to the history and work of the Alfried Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach-Stiftung. The exhibits on the upper floor trace the history of the Krupp Company since its beginnings more than 200 years ago.
In 2005/06 the Alfried Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach-Stiftung renovated the Small House at Villa Hügel in the line with the regulations for historic buildings. The aim was to preserve the building’s historical substance and restore its original villa character. The redesigned Historical Exhibition opened in 2007.
