I felt this museum badly needs some fresh thinking by the curator(s). It simply contains too much material, much of it in the form of text displayed on wall panels; given the small rooms in the Museum Haus and the degree of crowding, it was often impossible to stand and read them without blocking the flow of people. The story of the rise and fall of the Berlin Wall is a fascinating one, and for the casual visitor it would surely be better to tell the tale in its bare essentials, concentrating on artefacts, while making the more detailed material available to serious students of political history, perhaps through touchscreen technology. It was also expensive (even with the Berlin Welcome Card discount) and, on a hot day, stifling, even with fans running in every room. I'm afraid I wimped out before getting all the way round.
