The museum also offers a special focus on the decisive events in the dramatic weeks in summer and fall 1989, enabling visitors from both Germany and abroad to experience the history of the fall of the Berlin Wall first-hand – and how this deadly monument was overcome that separated the world for almost four decades into East and West.

  • I enjoyed walking through the museum. Very interesting perspective on what happened during the occupation of Berlin. Had many videos playing of recordings of that time that were informative. They even had a living room setup so you could see what it would have looked like from a typical living room if you were lucky to have had a TV. Worth seeing it if you are in the area.
  • The museum is mostly video clips on short repeat, so if you were being cynical you could say that you would get the same experience watching a Berlin wall documentary. However, I do think the location of the wall in close proximity to the museum means that people who have come to see the wall without any prior knowledge can get to know what happened a bit better. I found I was a little tired of watching video clips by the end so some other kind of media would have spiced things up a little. As others have said, the staff are friendly.
