This is one of those attractions that is a very worthwhile visit but could so easily be missed. We visited this while going between Checkpoint Charlie and the Brandenburg Gate and were very impressed at the content and detail, explaining about the area and what the Nazis implemented and carried out.
One part of this is open to the elements , so better visited on a good day (although it does provide some shelter. The museum part is a modern building which is very well equipped.
The museum is on the site of the former Gestapo headquarters, and includes the remains of some of the basement prison cells, together with a detailed commentary of the atrocities of the 20th century. The edge of the site is also bounded by one of the longest remaining sections of the Berlin wall.
I found it to be one of the most informative and interesting places I visited in the city.
