The Chemnitz Industrial Museum was created on the site of former engineering factories using parts of buildings that have been preserved.

The open spaces to the south perform the functions of the museum on the one hand and are also reserved areas for future extensions on the other.

Extensive brick rubble areas symbolize the conversion of the industrial architecture, the demolition material of the buildings was reused in another form. The centrally located multifunctional area of "brick lawn" is available for events and exhibitions, and the tracks of the Musum railroad have been integrated into the ground.

To the south, the higher railroad facilities were partially incorporated into the use with a "lawn tribune" (earth embankment). The furnishings and surfaces are based on the industrial history of the site.
