Military Museums

Technik-Verein Pütnitz - Automotive and Aviation Technology from the former Eastern Bloc
A variety of both well-known and unknown automotive and aviation technology from the former Eastern Block is on display at the former Russian military airfield in Pütnitz. This airfield was heavily guarded during the GDR era. Visitors can get behind the wheel of a large Russian truck or a Trabi and drive it around a specially-designed circuit.

The Peenemünde Historical Technical Information Center, Island of Usedom
The path from the dreams of the pioneering missile engineers to the systematic development of the first military rocket via civil space travel in Peenemünde is narrated in its historical context using documents, original features, interviews with contemporary witnesses, documentaries and models as evidence. The rocket's serial production and implementation in combat are presented, as well. A second section of the exhibition is dedicated to the development of rocketry after World War II and therefore focuses not only on the Arms Race in the Cold War, but also on the initial successes in civil space travel.

German-Russian Museum Berlin-Karlshorst
On May 8, 1945, the Second World War in Europe came to an end in Berlin-Karlshorst. In accordance with the German-Soviet treaties governing the fallback of the Soviet troops, both sides agreed to remember this location and the historic event that ended the National Socialist regime in Germany. The exhibits of the former "Museum of the Unconditional Surrender of Fascist Germany in the 'Great Patriotic War' of 1941 - 1945" form the basis for the new exhibition. Museums from both of the nations, historians and World War II experts have provided a great portion of evidence and exhibits.
