    What to Expect
    The items in the museum bear witness to this. There are original possessions from successful escapes, a hot-air balloon, a mini submarine, escape aircraft. Those who aided in escapes were at home in our museum, the escapes were planned here and GDR injustice was combatted here. Our museum was the last island of freedom before the border. After the escapes, the refugees and their helpers donated these items and other original objects to our museum. As a result, the museum grew organically as historical events unfolded. 

    Friendships with escape helpers brought us hot-air balloons, escape cars, chairlifts, and a mini submarine. We have activists in the resistance to thank for a spring gun, dismantled at the risk of life, and a pipe support from the Wall obtained by "Wall runner John Runnings". We are also able to claim the title of first museum of international non-violent protest. Our exhibits include the Charta 77 typewriter, the hectograph of the illegal periodical "Umweltblätter", Mahatma Gandhi's diary and sandals, and from Yelena Bonner the death mask of her partner Andrei Sakharov.

    Visiting Checkpoint Charlie and the nearby Mauermuseum were on our tourist to do list. The visit to the Museum was very disappointing. There is just so much information from ceiling to floor on every wall in every small room. There is just no way that...More

    The most important part of this museum is that it was the last house before the wall. There is a window (now built up beyond) which was used to look for gaps in security details for escapees. There are interesting exhibits on various methods of...More

    Thank goodness museums aren’t made like this anymore... Not at all engaging. Far too much text. Layout poor and confusing. Really feels like a tourist trap, which hasn’t been invested in since it opened. Even the translation is poor - Google translate could do a...More

    I decided to come to this museum as I didn’t know a lot about the Berlin Wall and the Cold War. Upon entering the first room, I was overwhelmed with how much information is up on the walls. Almost to the point that I wanted...More

    Unfortunately this museum needs a lot of work. The exposition is overcrowded and confusing, without a clear timeline or topic, including Gandi, Asian and Russian stuff! If you can endure the absence of air-con while keep focus on what you are interested in, you can...More
