The DDR museum collection
Our collection comprises over 200,000 objects, archived in our central depot in Berlin Spandau. Archiving our range of objects is a considerable task and will take a number of years to complete.
Although we are still engaged in this task, we are able to present a small proportion of our collection in an online database. This has been conceived as a two-way process: researchers can view our objects online, and we can read your remarks, which can be used to inform our archiving procedure.
We are happy to accept direct questions regarding specific objects and are prepared to consider requests for loans from those interested in organizing special exhibitions. Journalists can download photographic material for their reports on the DDR Museum.
The database is only available in German.
