Allied Museum pub­li­ca­tions

Exhibitions are taken down, but the printed page lasts. On this page you can learn about the publications we produce to accompany our temporary exhibitions, in particular. All our publications are trilingual in German, English, and French.

In collaboration with authors and designers, we publish informative, readable, and handsomely produced booklets and books. Most of them are lavishly illustrated and contain many rare, previously unpublished photos. You can purchase Allied Museum publications on site from our museum shop or by sending an e-mail: info@alliiertenmuseum.de.
