The "Iron Curtain" was a European phenomenon and divided the continent over four decades in East and West. It was a direct result of the Cold War which kept the world over this entire period in its tight grip. Based on this global and European importance, which is explained at the very beginning of the exhibition, the actual impact of the "Iron Curtain" on the Lower Austrian-Czechoslovak border is brought closer to the visitors: illustrated by tangible phenomena, the differences between the East and the West, the influence of the "Iron Curtain" on political, social and economic development is demonstrated. The last section of the exhibition explores the overcoming of the "Iron Curtain" and the role of European integration to get over the former polar opposites step-by-step.

History is explained by means of graphs, numerous photographs and previously unpublished documents related to the fate of the people living at the "Iron Curtain" in a vivid way.

The exhibition is divided into eight geographic and into ten thematic areas.
