The Basics

Friedrich’s first attempt at an Anti-War Museum was promptly shut down in 1933 by the Nazis, who destroyed most of his collection. It was finally reopened in 1982, after almost 50 years, by his grandson and a group of volunteers who strongly believed in Friedrich’s message. Today the Anti-Kriegs-Museum is free of charge, financed mostly by donations, to continue to educate the public on the horrors of war in the hopes of preventing future conflicts.

The Modern War Exhibit

Though the Anti-Kriegs-Museum is meant to shed light on the horrors of war, many conflicts have arisen since World War II. A large map is on display in the museum that shows modern-day wars and conflicts around the world. There is also an exhibit that discusses present-day means of warfare, such as chemical and biological weapons.
