The German Historical Museum is located in the centre of Berlin in two architecturally significant buildings

Permanent exhibit

The permanent exhibition is housed in the baroque Zeughaus Unter den Linden and has attracted many museum-goers and visitors to Berlin since its opening in June 2006. The permanent exhibition is called "German History in Pictures and Testimonies" and gives an impression of the 2000-year history, which is seen in a European context. There are 8000 different exhibits, such as posters. They create a fascinating and unique picture of German history, always taking into account the worldwide context and foreign history. In this way it is possible to present the processes of exchange and networking in an interesting way.

Special exhibitions

The special exhibitions are located in an adjoining building of the Chinese-American architect I.M. Pei, which was opened in 2003. This is accessible both through the inner courtyard of the armoury and via a separate entrance. The entrance area is made of glass and steel and equipped with an eye-catching staircase spindle. The special exhibition is spread over 4 levels and paints an impressive picture of German history.

++ The Zeughaus is currently being renovated and is expected to be closed until the end of 2025! The museum's temporary exhibitions can still be seen in the Pei Building ++
