BERLIN MUSEUM POSTCARDS

 

I believe that some of the best postcards to be bought in Berlin can be found in the museums, especially the superb postcard ranges in the DDR MUSEUM and the GERMAN HISTORICAL MUSEUM. I have visited the gift shops in both these museums (I have also been inside the DDR Museum, which I can totally recommend) and I managed to buy some superb postcards from both. As with the main Berlin gallery I do not have the time to translate each, and every postcard and this means some are unlikely to ever make it onto the main webpage, especially if I keep getting new cards which always seem to take precedence. So, I have created this gallery, and again I show both the front and reverse sides so that all the information is obtainable. The only text shown will be which museum gift shop I obtained the postcard from, although some designs could be found in either museum.

TOPICS / THEMES

 

These museum postcards cover a wide selection of themes including:

 

ARCHITECTURE

SPACE

CINDERELLA STAMP LABELS

ANIMALS

BIRDS

POSTERS

BERLIN WALL

VEHICLES

UNIFORMS

SPORT

TELEVISION

USSR & EAST GERMAN HISTORY

MONEY (BANKNOTES)

CHILDREN

POLICE

 

I think these were some of the best postcards I found whilst I was travelling around Berlin. I also like how they also often added some nice additional material or images on the reverse sides, something which I think adds a lot to a postcard’s attraction.
