This is a well done exhibit displaying a portion of the Berlin wall. It offers more that just the panels. There are several plaques strategically placed on a peaceful winding path that describe the events of the day leading up to the collapse, as well as the events afterwards. It's an extremely well done presentation and causes one to pause and reflect on that time. The story on how they landed in a beautiful Rapid City park is fascinating.

As a history lover I loved going to this. Brought my whole family and read all the signs and explained to them what was going on and happening. Takes about 15 mins to walk through and read all the signs. Very informative and cool little piece of history. Right next to the Civic Center so if you are going there might as well stop and check this out.

This was a must see while here on family vacation. It was also timely in educating my kids about the history of this wall. My daughter just finished US history and we have talked about world history so this was a great exhibit!

It is located downtown in the Memorial Park area and is free!

This is a great exhibit and it has great details about it!

Nice exhibit in a pretty area of town with the waterfront park. It is close enough to walk to the president statues and it’s close to drive to the dinosaur park. All things we wanted to see while passing through and they were all there together.

I’m not. A history buff but since we were in rapid for a few days I wanted to see the exhibit. We were the only ones there and it could have been missed as it’s in an unassuming location but it is really worth seeing in my opinion. And it’s free.

...of my youth and Army time in Germany. Very informative information panels reminded me of how the world was when I was younger. I had arrived in Germany about a year after the wall fell and was in a unit that was located near the Fulda Gap: the expected Soviet invasion route. The Wall coming down was a happy time for Germany and most of the world, but for American Army soldiers it was still bit of a tense era, especially with the Gulf War on the horizon. My time in Germany and the Wall coming down was sort of a personal "end of an era" as well. My dad passed while I was there, and I came back to the States very much never wanting to return. I received a hardship discharge from the military and wouldn't go back to active duty until 9/11. I liked being at this display very much. Being there brought back intense memories for me.

I can't imagine the cost and effort it took to get these things moved here. What an incredible piece of history. Well done.

I stopped here once when I was younger and wanted to stop this time also to show my husband and kids. I will say, sometimes it’s hard for the kids to embrace learning the history, but the park that this exhibit is at is very nice and open too! It’s a nice piece of history and I suggest adding it as a quick stop on your trip!

Wow, I’m still not exactly sure why this is here but it makes for a nice short trip and is well presented with a great summary of the history surrounding the Berlin Wall.

The Berlin Wall exhibit is good but the park where it is can't be beat! It's beautiful and so peaceful!
