Top class museum straight across the road from the Friedrichstraße station. It took us ages to find us and we had such a laugh trying to get here. However it was so worth visiting, free entry and a free audio guide to enhance your visit.

There was a lot to read, but English was available and a lot of the first person interviews were available in translation. Helped make it more understandable, what it must have been like to live with the separation.

Well worth a visit if you don't follow directions on the TA city guide, this takes you to Alexanderplatz. which is miles from where it is. we spent a good 3-4 hours here and found it to be worth the trip.
