About us

The museums you have visited so far cannot be compared to our museum in Slezská Ostrava. With the support of foreign partners, unique objects from World War II were put together that you won’t see in any other museum in Europe.

There are no post-war or excavated items. The museum boasts Europe’s largest surviving Reichsadler (Imperial Eagle), brought down from a government building at the end of the war in 1945, with a wingspan of 300 cm.

Documents and uniform of Brigadier General Delbert Earle Munson, who was in Hawaii during the attack on Pearl Harbor. He fought for Guadalcanal and the Solomon Islands at the same time John F. Kennedy was fighting there.

Uniforms of the Wehrmacht, Luftwaffe, RAF, Afrika Korps, Red Army, items from submarines as well as other items are so well preserved that there is a lot to look at, and you can also read a lot about the war.

Military equipment enthusiasts can see a DKW NZ 350 motorcycle in original wartime colours from 1944, a 1943 MG machine-gun carriage and more.

Those who are not afraid can visit the air-raid shelter in the basement of the building. The events from the rise of the NSDAP to the conquest of Berlin by the Red Army can be seen on two whole floors.
