\ I was wondering if this museum is open or perhaps will be soon. Thank you
The website says that is is closed as of January 2nd 2012 due to major renovation and refurbishment. No additional information as to when they plan to open again is provided.
If you really are mad keen on the applied arts etc., the secondary site 'Kunstgewerbemuseum Schloss Köpenick' appears to be open (although winter-opening days are Thursday to Sunday only).
As I've said in some previous answers, Köpenick makes a good half- or full-day excursion. Well, I like the place, anyway.
For those interested in events commemorating the victims of Nazism, I note that Köpenick will be holding special events in June on the 80th anniversary of Köpenick Blood Week (berlin.de/2013/en/partners/a... ), although the Gedenkstatte is worth visiting at any time...
