History goes on

The Zeughaus is being renovated. Visit our temporary exhibitions in the Pei building!

What is happening in the Zeughaus?

The Zeughaus is closed for necessary renovations and for the renewal of the Permanent Exhibition since 28 June 2021. It is expected to open again at the end of 2025. The exhibition "German History from the Middle Ages to the Fall of the Berlin Wall" is not on display anymore.

The main reason for the closure is that the air conditioning technology in the Zeughaus has to be fully restored, which requires removing all of the objects from the exhibition area. The Federal Office for Building and Regional Planning is in charge of coordinating the construction measures.

We will continue to inform you about the proposals and the new developments in the Zeughaus by means of the DHM blogs and our social media channels.

Visit us in the Pei building

During the time when the Zeughaus is closed, the temporary exhibitions in the Pei Building will continue to be open to the public. In the period of transition until the new Permanent Exhibition opens again, the exhibition “Roads not Taken. Another German History” will be on display starting in November 2022.
