Visit to the Wende Museum

visited the Wende Museum (Archives of the Cold War) today and met with the great staff including the Executive Director/Founder Justinian Jampol, the Manager of Projects & Research Cristina Cuevas-Wolf, the Director of Collections & Public Programs Ljiljana Grubisic, Collections Manager John Elliott, and Rob Sherer the Development Director.

On display right outside the entrance was a striking segment of the Berlin Wall painted by Thierry Noir.

The Wende Museum has over 100,000 objects including beautiful paintings (oil on canvas), posters, sculptures, statues, newspapers (complete run of East Germany’s official daily newspaper, commemorative plates), books, films, flags/banners, magazines and other assets. They have several small rooms as exhibition space and a larger vault in the back.

Hope you get a chance to visit!

The Museum is open to the public every Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tour of the Vault at 3 p.m. Admission is free.
