It was an amazing but sad experience. You may feel what was happening so long time ago in your own skin! It was deeply emotional. The best part though was the last room before the exit!

Beside the wall it was just large pages of images and text hanging from strings, Just see the wall and read the story online in a book. A lack of memorabilia and tactile objects make it hard to call it a Museum, but still worth...More

Old fashioned display, but the interesting content makes this a worthwhile visit. Don't turn away because of the Red Pirate surroundings :)

Located on the fourth floor so lots of stairs, apparently there is a lift but it's not in a visible place and no signage indicating where. Good use of audio visual with original footage of the Berlin Wall, and some seating available in places. We...More

I would not recommend that you make the journey to visit this museum but if you are visiting the East Side Outdoor gallery then it is worthwhile to make a stop here. Four floors up so the steps will not be for everyone. If you...More

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
