NATO - Mission for freedom
In 2007 our museum decided to hold a new permanent exhibit on the history of NATO in order to do justice to NATO’s services for freedom. The exhibit is a logical supplement to our museum’s content. With 120 wall charts, 90 media stations and numerous original objects, it presents historical post-war developments and their contexts not only in Berlin, but worldwide.
Before the exhibit was opened Charles C. Clay, grandson of the U.S. General Lucius D. Clay, and Sergei Khrushchev unveiled the memorial plaque at the Allied checkpoint barracks at Checkpoint Charlie. For NATO HQ, NATO Deputy Assistant Secretary General for Public Diplomacy, Dr. Stephanie Babst, publicly bequeathed to us one of the first original, historical emblems of NATO. NATO General Secretary Anders F. Rasmussen visited and dignified the exhibit in 2012.
