New permanent exhibition and outdoor space
To mark the 150th anniversary of the German railways' existence, the museum created its new permanent exhibition chronicling the various eras of rail history. At the same time, work was completed on the vehicle hall in Sandstrasse, opposite the main building. Following a heated public debate, the museum turned its attention to the issue of the Nazi era for the first time, dedicating a small room to the subject.
