    What to Expect
    The items in the museum bear witness to this. There are original possessions from successful escapes, a hot-air balloon, a mini submarine, escape aircraft. Those who aided in escapes were at home in our museum, the escapes were planned here and GDR injustice was combatted here. Our museum was the last island of freedom before the border. After the escapes, the refugees and their helpers donated these items and other original objects to our museum. As a result, the museum grew organically as historical events unfolded. 

    Friendships with escape helpers brought us hot-air balloons, escape cars, chairlifts, and a mini submarine. We have activists in the resistance to thank for a spring gun, dismantled at the risk of life, and a pipe support from the Wall obtained by "Wall runner John Runnings". We are also able to claim the title of first museum of international non-violent protest. Our exhibits include the Charta 77 typewriter, the hectograph of the illegal periodical "Umweltblätter", Mahatma Gandhi's diary and sandals, and from Yelena Bonner the death mask of her partner Andrei Sakharov.

    Expensive, boring, confusing. Not a place to take kids. A few interesting artifacts but the disorganized setup of the museum made it difficult to enjoy anything.

    There are not many reviews for this place, but I cannot for the life of me understand why the reviews it does have are mostly positive. If you ever wanted an example of how not to put together an exhibition this is it. Having arrived at Checkpoint Charlie you see the

    Many fascinating displays, the museum wanders and meanders through numerous rooms on two floors. Easy to loose your companions! My favorite parts were actual cars that were used to transport escapees across the border between east and west. Details on the struggle of people in

    The wall has great info. I think if you visit early in the morning, you can avoid the supersized crowds.

    We first visited in the 1970's while I was serving there in the RAF. It was then, and still is, an iconic spot in Berlin and really brings home the reality of the cold war, the wall and it's impact on Berlin. The museum has expanded over the years and is now a very good day out.
