Some people may say that it sticks like a sore thumb in the middle of the Berlin's skyline, but I think it is a not very sober but very interesting and catching structure.

This museum was included as part of the Berlin Pass. So when we were walking down Unter den Linden we couldn't help but go in for a quick visit. Except it wasn't quick at all - small museum but huge amounts of memorabilia and also video segments to watch - puts a lot of history into perspective in easily digestible chunks. The audio guide was included and was very helpful as we pottered about. Allow a couple of hours to not rush yourself. Ideal end of the day venture if your legs can stand it - because you won't have to concentrate too much

Really enjoyed this museum, and learnt a lot more than I would have expected about German history, and post Second World War division of the city. It complements the Checkpoint Charlie museum, but has more of a global significance factor than just "the wall".

Definitely worth a good few hours visit. Lots to read and listen to, but the exhibits need updating, and actually matching some of the displays.

I thought I was familiar with Berlin's recent history but this museum added some historical perspective and some intriguing details about more modern times.
