German Historical Museum - cultural heritage

The German Historical Museum in the centre of Berlin is the national museum for history in Germany. It aims to provide “enlightenment and communication” about a common history shared by Germans and other Europeans right through to present day.

Museum for enlightenment and communication
The German Historical Museum in the Zeughaus (former armoury) on “Unter den Linden” has been open to the public since 2006 and has a permanent exhibition entitled “German History in Images and Testimonials”. An exhibition space of around 7,500m² is home to nine different eras, from the start of German history to present day. The exhibition ends with “1945 – 1949 Germany Under Allied Occupation” and “1949-1994 Divided Germany and Reunification”. The whole exhibition is spread over two floors. The upper floor covers the period from the first century A.D. to the end of the German Empire in 1918, and the lower floor presents the history of the Weimar Republic, the Nazi regime, post-war Germany and the two German states until the withdrawal of the allied troops in 1994.
