The exhibits of UEM's Archives and Museum Foundation

In the process of designing our exhibitions we look frankly and critically at our own history, while also showing the positive development and current state of the facilities and churches that have originated from it.

You are welcome to contact us if you would like to know more about individual exhibitions.
