    My Cozy Third Reich museum

    Hey everyone.
    Here's my little collection bunker; a small area in the basement I made.
    Not everything is displayed fully as.... well.... there are drawers in that cabinet, and they be filled with dishes and stuff.
    I love designing and re-designing the room almost as much as I love collecting. Hope you like like it, maybe gives you some ideas for your own museum.

    Thanks for looking


    NOTE: The railway eagle is a replica.


    Originally I had a nice cherry wood three-level shelving unit, but upon finding this vintage 70s style dining room cabinet with its unique wood carving and orange under accents on the sides, I felt it provided the room with much more of a cozy and historical feel, and I swapped them out.
    NOTE: The SS hat is a replica. Me not so rich.




    Top to bottom.
    1. Top shelf is a 22-foot outdoor building banner.
    2. Mid shelf a maroon, wire tassel podium banner, and red pennant
    3. Thin black case between the books - Luftwaffe Officers 18-piece silverware set
    4. Large brown case below that - various Waffen SS stainless cutlery
    5. Open drawer left - Waffen SS soups bowls (more porcelain inside cabinet)
    6. Open drawer right - 2x3.35m Kriegsmarine flag



    One amazingly comfy lounge chair. Great for reading and late night Scotch.




    Smaller podium style banners and funeral sash.


    Velvet podium banner.


    ... with decorative curtain rod accent from Bed, Bath, and Beyond.



    Finally... the museum with just the curio cabinet light and vintage amber bulb over head. Quaint and cozy as the dickens!!



    Final note. While my (Japanese) wife has no issue with me collecting Third Reich militaria nor having a museum style room to display it.... she still refuses to sit in there as she finds it "uneasy and creepy". Guess you can't have everything.

      Yeah i know..... I hear it sometimes. LOL.

      My two schillings.

      Most of my flags came from Vets or the families of Vets, who for a generation kept those flags wrinkled and crumpled in boxes or trunks and God knows where from damp basements to dusty attics... and.... look at these flags.... still gorgeous, vibrant, and firmly stitched and together. (I only buy flags in very good / excellent condition cuz I ain't rich.)

      If these flags can last through THAT abuse... I'm sure my delicate folding and storage in a finished basement in a dimly lit to dark museum will be just fine. And I also take them out to admire them sometimes before refolding them differently and returning them.

      The bottom line is this. I want to visually enjoy that which i spend money on. I mean, these flags still look amazing after being hung out side in the 1930s, and/or flown on battleships on the ocean.... and then stuffed in Vet trunks for the next 60 years. Being cared for the way they are in my home display, they'll easily make it for another 60 years in the same condition.

        This is just a gorgeous room, very tastefully and classy done. I also enjoy the display as much as the collecting so I really enjoy how you put this together. J

                Hello gc:
                Great podium banner display, and a
                nice touch of class with the use of the
                BB&B fixtures. A superb room too IMO.
                ......... OFW ..........

                          That's a pretty awesome room. Makes me want to pour a scotch. I tend to hate 99.999% of wood paneling in rooms, but I like this one.
