The permanent exhibition opened in April 2016 in the former Provisions Depot. The cultural-historical exhibition shows political monuments which were once part of Berlin’s urban landscape but have been removed.

Some of the most important exhibits are the group of monuments of the Siegesallee built between 1898 to 1901 depicting the Brandenburg-Prussian rulers, the Zehnkämpfer (Decathlete) designed by Arno Breker and characterised by National Socialism, and the head of the monumental Lenin statue unveiled in 1970 at today’s Platz der Vereinten Nationen in Friedrichshain. What is normally not allowed in a museum, is possible here – you can touch most of the objects! An accompaniment to this new museum is an exhibition in the Old Barracks in form if a more in-depth treatment of Berlin monuments, which you can visit until 11 Febuary 2018.
