Haus der Geschichte
Our history. Germany since 1945
The Haus der Geschichte der Bundesrepublik Deutschland presents the history of both German states after 1945 until the present day in an impressive permanent exhibition. Approximately 7,000 original exhibits can be viewed ranging from the Federal Chancellors' saloon railway carriage, an original 1950s cinema to parts of the Berlin Wall, Honecker's arrest warrant and the first green card for a foreign IT specialist. Historic film and sound documents as well as a large number of media stations encourage active discussion about the country's history.
Live staging and interviews with contemporary witnesses accompany visitors through the exhibition. As well as the permanent exhibition, the Haus der Geschichte also presents temporary exhibitions in the exhibition hall, foyer and in the underground train gallery.
Because of renovation work, the permanent exhibition is closed from March until autumn 2017. However, the temporary exhibitions remain unaffected.
