Lonely Planet review

Tiny and free, the Antiwar Museum is a labour of love with a big – and timely – message. Erich Friedrich, who founded it in 1925, was an avowed peacenik and author of the book War against War (1924). After Nazis trashed his museum in 1933, he emigrated to Belgium and later joined the French resistance. His grandson, Tommy Spree, reopened the museum in 1982 with objects from both world wars. A staircase descends to an air-raid shelter equipped with bunk beds, gas masks and a creepy ‘gas bed’ for babies. The Peace Gallery presents changing exhibits.
