Allied Museum (Alliierten Museum) Tours

The Allied Museum, or Alliierten Museum in German, explores the history of the Allies in Berlin from the end of World War II until a few years after the reunification of Germany. In the decades after the war, the conflicts of the Cold War between French, British, and American troops in the West and the Soviets in the East shaped the reconstruction of the city. The museum has both permanent and temporary exhibits which focus on different aspects of this period of Berlin's history.

The permanent exhibit is divided into sections. One area, in the former American Outpost movie theater, explores the years 1945 to 1950 and includes the end of the war, the first years of the occupation and a big focus on the Berlin Airlift during the Soviet blockade in 1948-1949. The open-air exhibit includes a plane used during the airlift, the dining car from a French military train, the last guardhouse from Checkpoint Charlie, and segments of the Berlin Wall. This area explores the threats to the access of West Berlin. 

Another area examines the period from 1951 to 1994. The focus is on the Cold War and the military confrontations between East and West. This exhibition also depicts everyday life in the garrisons as well as the events of German unity in 1990 through withdrawal of Western forces in 1994.
