In its permanent exhibition the Willy Brandt House presents the life and legacy of the Federal Chancellor, Nobel Peace Prize laureate and son of the Hanseatic City of Lübeck. You can explore the 20th century by following his trail through seven rooms, from the Weimar Republic to the reunification of Germany. Besides his biography the exhibition focuses on the topics of democracy, human rights and peace. Since September 2007 the Willy Brandt House Lübeck is the Lübeck branch office of the Federal Chancellor Willy Brandt Foundation (Berlin). It is thus the third site of learning, after the Buddenbrook House (Heinrich and Thomas Mann Centre) and the Günter Grass House, to be devoted to a Lübeck Nobel laureate.
The Willy-Brandt-Haus and the Günter-Grass-Haus are joined by a garden. Therefore visitors only need to make a few steps to get from one museum to the other.

Films, interactive multimedia stations and many other things offer a fascinating tour through history.
Differentiated according to school type, grade and subject the Willy Brandt House offers guided tours on special topics, especially on the history of the 20th century, understanding of democracy, human rights education and media literacy.
