This exhibit is curated in a very thorough and engaging way and sheds light not only on the political career of Willy Brandt but also on the entire Cold War era in Germany. Enlightening and enriching. I would hotly recommended it.

I am a 65 year old American and I really enjoyed this museum. I grew up hearing about Willy Brandt and his contributions to Germany. I learned a lot of things about his early life. I recommend this place.
