Visiting the Allied Museum with school classes
Berlin is full of places to learn about history outside the classroom. However, only the Allied Museum is dedicated to the history of the Western powers stationed in the city from 1945 to 1994. Important chapters in the history of postwar Berlin and the Cold War are illuminated here from an international perspective.
We invite school classes to participate in guided tours of our exhibitions in German, English, and French. You can choose an overview tour of the permanent exhibition or more information on individual themes. Pupils in Grades 4 and up are invited on a journey back in time to the Berlin Airlift. Afterwards, they can participate in an arts and crafts workshop. The film program narrates recent history in moving images.
Currently, guided tours and workshops are only available for groups of max. 10 people. If your learning group is larger, we will check internally what we can offer you. Please use the booking form and be sure to indicate the group size, desired dates and the desired tour or workshop.
During the tour we ask participants to keep a minimum distance of 1.5 m and to wear a mouth-nose mask.
If you would like to visit the Allied Museum with your school class, you can do so at any time during general opening hours. Admission is free.
On our website teachers can find accompanying German-language material to prepare for and follow up on class visits to the Museum. This includes a quiz pad, which school classes can use to explore the permanent exhibition.
We will be happy to tell you about our information events for teachers. We also offer advice and assistance on research for the Intermediate School-Leaving Certificate (MSA) and papers and presentations for the Abitur exam (5. PK).
