We offer general guided visits of the permanent exhibition – for individuals and for groups. During the tour of the exhibition we seek to hear your views and look forward to questions, ideas and discussion. Our guides prepare specially for the particular group, be it school classes, contemporary witnesses, adults or children. To book a guided visit, please contact our Visitor Services; the staff there will gladly assist with any other questions you may have.


Guided visits are not possible until further notice. The permanent exhibition and the photo exhibition „Germany becomes one. Dismantling the Inner-German Border“ can be visited again from 19 May 2020.


For your health and protection, the safety measures recommended by the Robert Koch Institute (distance and hygiene rules) apply.
