We preserve DDR history

The core task of our museum is the collection and curation of historical and cultural artefacts from the former DDR. So far, we have collected over 300,000 objects and are acquiring more every day. We maintain a huge warehouse to store our artefacts, all of which are being catalogued by a team of dedicated experts. Our catalogue is available online.

Is is possible to loan our objects for exhibitions.
