The History of the Allies in Moving Images
We show you our favorite objects from the permanent collection. Historical film material and conversations with contemporary witnesses give insights into nearly 50 years of Allied presence.
We provide glimpses of our collection. Here you can search our holdings, which we have made accessible online via the platform museum-digital. You will also find our objects in the Deutsche Digitale Bibliothek and Europeana.
VIRTUAL TOUR OF THE GUARDHOUSE AT CHECK-POINT CHARLIE
Take a virtual tour and discover the last surviving guardhouse at Checkpoint Charlie. At ten stations, you will learn more about the function and history of the Allied military checkpoint, which has come to symbolize the Cold War and the division of Berlin. Step inside virtually and explore the interior.
Our virtual classroom explores the history of the Berlin Airlift of 1948/49. In cooperation with the US Embassy in Berlin and the aid organization CARE, we have developed an interactive presentation for digital teaching that spans the period up to the present day.
Prefer to investigate on your own?
For some five decades, American soldiers influenced Berlin and the lives of its people. Their traces remain visible today, especially in the southwest of the city. Discover and explore former US facilities such as military headquarters, a church building, an officers’ housing development or barracks during a walk with the help of your smartphone.
