About
The Wall Museum Berlin is located just next to the famous East Side Gallery Berlin - the last remaining piece of the Berlin Wall in the city centre of Berlin. The innovative multimedia Wall Museum presents Berlin’s recent history in a unique and enthralling way. From the beginning of the Cold War in 1945 until Reunification and via the dramatic building of the Berlin Wall in 1961, history is brought to life in 13 themed rooms using various original film documents and interviews. It is a must for all who want to discover the truth behind the Wall and how it changed this exceptional city. Walking along the East Side Gallery after visiting the Wall Museum gives you a completly new look at this monument and the art it shows.

The area
Address
Neighborhood: Friedrichshain
When you arrive at Warschauer Strasse in the heart of the district, you have found one of Berlin’s party hotspots. At night in Friedrichshain, the energy is palpable and the streets of this old worker's quarter are full of street musicians. On one hand, you may find a bar with international crowds, electronic music, long lines and panoramic views - on the other, an outside venue by old train yards featuring decrepit buildings and live alternative music. No matter your taste, the best way to end a night out in Friedrichshain is sitting by the Spree River at the East side gallery, the longest and best preserved piece of the Berlin Wall, watching the sun rise over the beautiful Oberbaum Bridge.
How to get there
  • Schlesisches Tor • 5 min walk
  • Warschauer Straße • 5 min walk

The museum isn’t really worth it. Is even more expensive than some of the museums from the Museums Island! It consists mostly on videos that you can easily find on the internet…

It is also not so tourist friendly since there’s no audio guides for people from other countries. Even some of the texts are only in german.. Considering the museum is beside the Wall they should consider having more languages available…

The elevator is only for staff use. For some disabled people it’s difficult to get upstairs like it was in our case.

The only good thing was the staff that was super friendly and polite.

Im old enough to remember seeing the wall come down on TV when it happened so after going to see the wall that is left we came in here to remind us of what happened. Really interesting museum, not too long and gives a great reminder of why the wall was put up, and all that happened in order for the wall to come down. would defo recommend a visit if you've come all the way to see the wall itself

Small but very informative museum about the construction and eventual destruction of the Berlin Wall. It has a very small entrance past the end of the East Side Gallery- but worth finding! The staff on the desk were helpful and friendly. Also warms you up on a very cold day!

Great and touching experience.
We have grown up in that era, in the east side of the iron curtain and knew only a few about that period.
Was very touching to see all these conflicts and situation that were shown with precisity and diligent collection of documents, evidences and illustrations.
Thank you for that!

Expensive museum. Not very big. If born before 1980 you know all the videos. Disappointed. It is historical, but it shows this too fast, just some repeating videos.. it is not all bad off course. The historic videos we all know are beautiful!

I would definitely recommend a visit here. The exhibition takes you through the pre-wall, wall building, living through and the fall of the wall. It is extremely well put together. You need to take your time to listen to all the contributors. It was quite emotional and touching. I have not seen this material elsewhere. Outside you can see painted section of the wall but we just had a short look at that-the museum was more interesting to us.
On the day we visited it was around 30 degrees and it was a bit hot inside. They did have some air conditioning on and windows open but there were a lot of screens heating it up and it was a bit toasty. Nonethless - we weren't put off and took our time to absorb it all. I cannot truly understand some of the less positive reviews because ultimately this is all accounts from individual people affected by many aspects of the wall.

While the museum ticket is affordable and displays a ton of information, it was quite simple. It is located in a walk-up building and mostly shows videos and texts with information about the topic (that you could frankly get on the internet).

This is near the large section of wall still standing, not by Checkout Charlie. It's really great but only in English /German, I think. Really gives a perspective on the impact of the wall on the German people. Great value for money. Includes lots of filmed footage & interviews with residents/soldiers of that time.

No introduktion to anything, only text all through the museum combined with pictures. Would have been better to read a book than go to this museum.
