House of History of the Federative Republic of Germany – the most visited museum

The idea of creating this museum belongs to the former chancellor of Germany Helmut Kohl. Assembling of the collection that tells the audience about difficult post-war years in the country started in 1982. Each exhibition in the museum is divided in two halves: Federative Republic of Germany and German Democratic Republic. Thus visitors can compare life on both sides on the Berlin wall.

Among over seven thousand exhibits in the museum you will find daily items. For the 1940s it is food cards, dresses from parachutes, shoes with wooden soles, a set of announcements about search for relatives. For the 1950s it is tapping devices, evidence of total shadowing in the East and photos of student riots in the West. 

Public can visit a typical 1960s apartment or a border checkpoint between GDR and FRG, watch TV shows in the first TV made in Germany. The exhibition ends with the subject of country unification. The museum also provides a large amount of video and audio materials, interactive stands that make your visit lively and visual. Each year House of the History of FRG is visited by more than 850 thousand people, making it the most visited museum in Germany! Entrance is free.
