You have to hear this exhibition! 90 years of pop music in Germany: from 1920s swing via the beat era, punk, German new wave, techno and hip hop right up to the latest trends. Plunge into the colourful world of pop with a set of headphones: listen to song tracks, radio excerpts and video clips at sound stations and take a journey back in time through your own past.
The exhibition celebrates not just chart-topping hits – German Schlager as well as offbeat and forgotten musical offerings await your (re)discovery. The heart of the exhibition is the Main Road, which presents the cultural background to the respective eras of pop. The Sound Lounge invites you to listen and relax. Sixty songs from Marlene Dietrich to Pur complement the Main Road audio experience. In the Backstage area, a selection of posters and record and CD covers brings old memories vividly back to life.
