In 2021, for the first time, the Showcase Archive (Schaufenster Archiv) will have its own presentation room on the first floor. Since 2019, the format has presented selected archival items from the extensive holdings of the museum archive on a theme that changes twice a year. In 2021, the focus will be on the Browns' former employees and library.
Large parts of the archive were systematically indexed and partially digitised in 2017–18. It contains, among other things, documents, letters, postcards, diaries and photographs from the Brown family estate. The time frame of the documents spans the years 1850 to 1987.
