The Brandenburg Gate Museum tells more than 300 years of living history through a multimedia time travel at the scene. Situated close to the most important landmark the Brandenburg Gate, the museum combines film, sound and emotion into a spectacular multimedia-show. 87 hightech screens with 180 million pixels as well as a 38 channel-surround-sound system allow visitors to witness the most important periods of German history such as the Golden Twenties, the Fall of the Berlin Wall or the 2014 football World Cup.
Additionally, an exhibition documents the historical events and the dramatic changes that took place around the Brandenburg Gate.
Let the Brandenburg Gate Museum Berlin take you on a time travel from 1650 to today: From the construction of the Brandenburg Gate, the seizure and return of the Quadriga, and the establishment of the German Empire to the age of rapid industrialization, the outbreak of World War I, and the Roaring Twenties. See the city become the capital of the Third Reich and the center of nightmarish destruction, followed by a period of 40 years in which Berlin became the symbol of the division of Germany and a world split into two blocks. Witness how mass protests and a peaceful revolution lead to the Fall of the Wall and a new start for the entire country. Feel the pumping bass of 1990s techno music at the Love Parade and join the German National Football Team as it celebrates its victory at the Brandenburg Gate.
Take an emotional and revealing trip through world history right where it all happened – the Brandenburg Gate. The Gate Berlin is the key to the history of a city that has seen it all and, at the same time, has it all ahead of it. Take your time as you watch the 20-minute multimedia show as often as you like. The adjacent Treasure Chamber displays a collection of historical pictures documenting the dramatic changes Pariser Platz has gone through over the centuries. Meet Nike, the goddess of victory. As the one steering the Quadriga, she has been sitting atop the Brandenburg Gate since 1793 and knows Pariser Platz like no one else. Our Treasure Chamber provides the opportunity to contemplate the world's only exact replica of the Nike sculpture. Make sure to also visit the exhibition's café that offers a breathtaking view of the Brandenburg Gate.
Experience historical milestones as you are surrounded by 87 high-tech screens. 180 million pixels and a 36-channel sound system provide an experience for all the senses. This multimedia show is suitable for all age groups and visitors from across the globe.
