1971 Bunker built.


The Story of Berlin is an interactive exhibition which shows the history of the city in 23 theme rooms. With up-to-date animation technology the 800 years of Berlin history are explained. The museum is dedicated to the daily life of the Berliners during the centuries.

Part of the exhibition is an original atomic bomb shelter underneath the Kurfürstendamm. The bunker was built during the Cold War and is able to house some 3,600 civilians in the case of an emergency. It remains functional despite the end of the cold war, as it is indended for civil defense, to protect and provide security during natural disasters and other crises.
