The Regimes Museum’s permanent collection focuses on a selection of the most infamous regimes of the 20th century, some of which have survived into the 21st. Among the many artifacts are books, uniforms, personal items and histories, posters, banners, hardware, ceramics, currency, and printed material. The Regimes Museum commits its resources to acquiring those artifacts that serve to fill in necessary gaps, are items of historical and cultural significance, or are in danger of being destroyed or removed from public access. The Museum strives to preserve these artifacts and make them available to scholars for research and open to public interest.

A number of the East European, Soviet/Russian and Former Yugoslavia items in our collection were generously donated by Carl Golden.

The content of this museum includes topics of a sensitive nature and may be offensive to some people. All material, physical, audio, and visual, are solely presented and used for scholarly and educational purposes. We do not support or promote the regimes or their ideologies in any way. We seek to present the history of these dictatorships as they were in order for individuals to better comprehend the phenomenon of dictatorship and repression throughout the history of the 20th century and the diverse cultures these entities took root in.
