Deutsches Historisches Museum

In 1987 the Federal Republic of Germany and the Land Berlin founded the Deutsches Historisches Museum (German Historical Museum). The museum shall in particular strive to gain a clear idea of Germany within the European and worldwide context. The permanent exhibition comprises the largest part of the exhibition space, containing artefacts and documents of German history that can be seen in as varied a frame of reference as possible. The basic principle for the permanent display will be to exhibit in three different types of rooms, in which German history will be presented within its European context and its regional diversity. From the 9th century to the present, the political, social, and economic aspects of German history will be depicted in reference to the history of Europe. The real core of these display spaces are the period rooms, in which visitors are walking through the epochs from the beginnings of German history up to the present. The sweeping historical survey concentrates on focal points of German history, which correspond with the crucial developmental periods of European history. The topic rooms offer a comparative look at the questions that crop up again and again in history. In depicting social history and everyday life these rooms help to illustrate the development of different forms and structures of life. The Museum also also non-permanent exhibitions.
