  • Admire the original artifacts from successful escapes
  • Learn how East Germans tried to flee from the unjust GDR regime
Full description
The museum was founded on October 19th, 1962, shortly after the construction of the Berlin Wall, as a protest against the Wall and to provide assistance to the people seeking help. The Berlin Wall Museum was formed with the purpose of fighting against human rights violations as a result of the wall. Gradually the museum increased its exhibition space and contributed to the fall of the Wall. The museum had a vital role in history and the objects on display in the museum provide evidence of this. They are original artifacts from successful escapes such as a hot-air balloon, a mini-submarine, cars and airplanes. People helping East Germans to flee used the museum as a base from which they planned the escapes and organized resistance to the unjust GDR regime. After escaping, the refugees and their helpers donated their various means of conveyance and other objects to the museum.

Quite a bit of thought provoking material. It feels small at first but keep walking... I enjoyed the additional displays about Human Rights, Civil Rights...the very current car, shot up and damaged in Ukraine. It's a shame that 90% of the video screens were not working. Either fix or remove them.

Checkpoint Charlie is a must in Berlin. Experiencing German history is always worth a trip. Since I switched sides myself in a spectacular escape across the death line in 1975, it was very exciting for me. Unfortunately, I've managed to get my story mentioned here in the museum, but what isn't can still be. Werner Daubner Author and publisher Berlin October 1st, 2022

No experience at peak times, the museum was unlocked, we got in... The museum is a bit old and doesn't meet today's expectations of a museum. You are sometimes overwhelmed by the many impressions, texts, pictures, ... Unfortunately, the "cinema" film didn't really work out despite the advertised times. Employees only came after being asked and then the wrong film started... what a shame about the waiting time on a scheduled Berlin weekend.
