The German-Russian Museum was officially opened on May 10th, 1995, the fiftieth anniversary of the end of the war in Europe. It is meant as a memorial of the German-Soviet War 1941-1945, but also documents the pre-war history and political relations between the USSR, the GDR and the Federal Republic. It constitutes a complementary view of the Museum of the Allies, which focuses solely on the victorious western allied forces.

The German-Russian Museum is located at the site of the unconditional surrender of the German Army on 8 May 1945. The museum creates space for a critical examination of history and memory, for education and encounters as well as communication between Germans and Russians. In the topical presentation, “50th Anniversary of John F. Kennedy in Berlin”, the museum discusses the reaction of the USSR and the visit of Soviet president Khrushchev to Berlin.

Special exhibitions, presentations and guided tours offer plenty of opportunity to learn more about the history of German-Russian relations during the 20th century.
