"TWO SIDES OF THE SAME STORY" IS THE MOTTO OF THE HIGH-TECH MUSEUM 4.0
MUSEUM MAKERS OPEN FOURTH MUSEUM IN BERLIN
Berlin is getting a new museum: The COLD WAR MUSEUM Berlin will open in the fall of 2022. The location of the new high-tech museum is Unter den Linden 14 - in the heart of the former capital of the Cold War. "Two sides of the same story" - The contemporary historical-scientific perspective on this era is the focus of the COLD WAR MUSEUM Berlin. It is the first museum in Germany to make the Cold War accessible in its international complexity.
Located between the Brandenburg Gate and the Humboldt Forum, in the middle of the famous boulevard directly at the new subway stop "Unter den Linden," the museum presents the various facets of the Cold War on two floors and more than 1,600 square meters: from the formation of blocs after World War II to the nuclear threat, the Cuban Missile Crisis, international espionage, the arms race and proxy wars to the peaceful competition of systems in sports, business, science, research and technology - for example, the race into space or the Olympic Games. The arc spans from 1945 to the dissolution of the USSR in 1991.
Visitors are offered the history of the Cold War with currently state-of-the-art techniques in an innovative and exciting way as a completely new and forward-looking museum experience. The initiators of the new museum are museum expert Carsten Kollmeier and his management partner Dr. Harald Braun, who have already been largely responsible for the realization of the Dali Museum Berlin, the Spy Museum Berlin (now: German Spy Museum) and for the also still young Samurai Museum Berlin.
Carsten Kollmeier explains his vision of the museum: "The COLD WAR MUSEUM Berlin has been missing in Germany. An important period of history is made tangible here. It is now finally receiving the space and attention that the decades of the Cold War had for the world and still have today. We want to sustainably inspire young and old with history in a high-tech museum 4.0 that spans generations and connects them."
