House of the Weimar Republic

A living forum for research and education

It took until the 100th anniversary for the first German democracy to be given its own place of remembrance at its founding site, Weimar. The permanent exhibition in the Oberlichtsaal of the former Kunsthalle invites visitors to learn more about the Weimar Republic - from its revolutionary beginnings to its political establishment and consolidation, the everyday life of the people and the new opportunities of the "Golden Twenties" to the crises and challenges the young democracy faced.

Exhibition on the history of the Republic

With a permanent exhibition on the Weimar Republic and a visitor centre, the first part of the central place of remembrance of the first German democracy has been realised.

Women's suffrage, the guarantee of fundamental rights, the separation of church and state, but also coup attempts, mass unemployment and assassinations - the Weimar Republic marks a turning point in German history. Even after 100 years, the enormous tensions of this period have lost none of their relevance. The museum is in a location that could not be more fitting: Opposite the venue of the National Assembly in the German National Theatre in Weimar.

Artists' Garden

A refuge in the middle of the city of Weimar: the artists' garden at the House of the Weimar Republic. Even before the opening of the central memorial to the first German democracy, the area was a place of encounter and cultural experience. On balmy summer evenings, a varied cultural summer awaits you with readings, concerts and film evenings.
