Housed in the former head-quarters of the Army High Command, the building was heavily damaged by the fall of Berlin in 1945. It was rebuilt in the 1950's and has been used by the both the German Federal Government and the State of Berlin.
The main permanent exhibition will reopen in summer 2014 after extensive redevelopment and will include presentations called, 'Resistance against National Socialism', 'What could they do?' 'Resistance against National Socialism 1939 - 1945', and 'Claus Schenk Graf von Stauffenberg and the Attempted Coup of July 20, 1944'.
The centre piece of the building is the commemorative courtyard, which is dedicated to the memory of the resistance officers that were executed during the war.
