German Russian Museum

This museum is located a little way out of Berlin, but the half hour train ride is worth it for the opportunity to immerse yourself in German/Russian war history. The permanent collection of collection of photographs are impressive, but also as interesting is the building itself - 

'From 1945 to 1949 the building was the headquarters of the Soviet Military Administration in Germany. After use by the Soviet military for various purposes a “historic memorial site – The Museum of the Soviet Armed Forces in Germany” opened in the building in 1967. Later renamed the “Museum of the Unconditional Surrender of Fascist Germany in the Great Patriotic War”, it existed until 1994. That year with the final withdrawal of the Russian troops the Museum Berlin-Karlshorst Association (Verein Museum Berlin-Karlshorst e.V.) was established, and on 10 May 1995, for the 50th anniversary of the end of the war in Europe, the German Russian Museum Berlin-Karlshorst opened. In 2013 a newly conceived permanent exhibition under development since 2009 was presented to the public.'

This museum is free to enter. Open from 10 am - 6 pm Closed Mondays.
