The textile manufacturer Friedrich Engels (1820-1895) was the most important advisor and friend of Karl Marx (1818-1883). In 1848 they published the “Neue Rheinische Zeitung (New Rhenish Gazette)” in Cologne and formulated the “Communist Manifesto”, which became the basis of later socialist and communist party platforms in the whole world. After Marx´s death, he was responsible for the completion of the central work “Das Kapital” (capital) and so founded together with his own works scientific socialism.
In the Friedrich Engels-House in Wuppertal life and work of Friedrich Engels are documented and presented museum-like in the context of the Industrial Revolution in the 19th century.
