You will be surprised by the detailed and authentic facilities at the House of History in Wittenberg.

Dive into Wittenberg in the distant past, you can reminisce or marvel at how comfortable your parents or grandparents had lived as they celebrated and played as children. The exhibition presents the everyday family life of the 1920s through to the "turning point" 1990 levels.

It can also be admired in public areas such as a dance bar with probably the only remaining fully intact, self-made disco system, a village pub, a small shop, a classroom, and an original furnished Kindergarten.

Of particular appeal in the House of History in Wittenberg are the permanent exhibitions "GDR life design & forms of the 70s", "Signs - time mark, German Russians in everyday life in a central German region from 1945 to 1993" and "Luther in the GDR ".
