Award

We are nominated for the „European Museum of the Year Award“!

Today started with good news! The DDR Museum with its second permanent exhibition is nominated again for the "European Museum of the Year Award" and of course, the joy is great! This nomination is a particular praise to all of us who worked so hard last year to implement the extension of the DDR Museum and the new permanent exhibition's concept.

Today started with good news! The DDR Museum with its second permanent exhibition is nominated again for the "European Museum of the Year Award" and of course, the joy is great! This nomination is a particular praise to all of us who worked so hard last year to implement the extension of the DDR Museum and the new permanent exhibition's concept.

In 2008, we were already nominated with our first permanent exhibition, unfortunetaly didn't win the award though. That's why we hope to win this year even more and keep our fingers crossed. This nomination is a great earlier Christmas present :)

The team has clinked glasses already. For special occasions we mostly drink "August der Starke". There were bought so many bottles for the opening in 2006 so that there were still several leftover. That's why it has become established to go back to the "Opening bottles" at festive occasions and drink to it. And I can say that this champagne still tastes good, even after 6 years!

Now we have celebrated enough (for now), let's get back to work...
