The Allied Museum tells the history of the Western Powers in Berlin. The buildings are located in the center of the former U.S. sector and originally housed the cinema and the library of the U.S. garrison. With a permanent exhibition and regular special exhibitions, the Museum honours the dedication of the United States, the United Kingdom and France to Berlin and Germany from 1945 to their withdrawal in 1994. The focus lies on the history of the Berlin Airlift and the Cold War era. Among the most prominent exhibits is a restored segment of the Berlin espionage tunnel, built by American and British Intelligence Service in order to tap the lines of soviet communication in East-Berlin. The Museum also deals with everyday life in the American, British and French sectors. In the open-air area some of the Museum’s outstanding large military objects are exposed, as for example a British “Hastings” aircraft from the time of the airlift, a railroad car from the French military train, and the original famous guardhouse of Checkpoint Charlie on Friedrichstrasse.

Berlin's Green Museum Quarter

Southwest Berlin abounds in outstanding museums and exhibition centres, situated in an attractive natural and cultural landscape. Berlin's Green Museum Quarter offers leisure and education, history, recreation and creative inspiration like no other area in the city. Here you can find the most diverse institutions, displaying everything from ancient to modern art, from natural to cultural history. The institutions are open, living museums and exhibition venues, committed to a common idea: recreation between culture and nature.

The Allied museum (Alliierten-Museum) is a member of the Liberation Route Europe, which is linking the major milestones of modern European history.
