History Museum
The site of the infamous Nazi Wannsee Conference, Haus der Wannsee-Konferenz was reopened as a Holocaust museum in 1992, after having first served as a school. Historian Joseph Wulf recommended that the site be converted into a Holocaust museum and memorial in 1965, but the German government claimed there was a lack of funding. Today, the permanent exhibits of photographs, documents planning the Holocaust, texts, and films remind visitors of the immense tragedy and explain how it happened.

  • As practically all German museums this is a well-organised and informative museum. The fact that the fate of some 11-12 million Jewish lives were decided here is hard to fathom; almost half of them di...  more »
  • The House with Park is very interesting both in historical and architectural terms. Inside is an information centre for the history of the persecution of Jews, that groups of many (school) is visited. However, it is difficult to capture the amount of information and to process because everything with wall charts is prepared. The best information exhibition, is my opinion in Nuremberg (docu Center), because there is working with a different "education".

  • The Wannsee is alone a pleasant recreational area. A bus runs from the train station through the residential area to the House of the Wannsee Conference. The documentation in 12 rooms, for which you should take plenty of time is highly informative.

  • Very important museum , but I think it would be more interesting to have a simulation of the table and participating figures (can be with wax models) , for a good visualization.
  • take time for this extraordinary stunning and frightening exhibition. should be a go to place every half a year. unbelievable.. still. school class tours are great
  • Great historical place to learn from. People hosting there are very knowledgeable on all topics.
  • Very informative site. Free of charge. To get here take bus 114 from the Wannsee Sbahn Station. In the summer months don't forget to go around and see the garden and the lake view. The contrast between the serenity of the place and the evil nature of the events that took place here is important.
  • Very interesting site for Jews and non Jews. The dissonance between the peaceful location and what people did there 75 years ago is amazing!
