The museum was very overcrowded and exceptionally hot. There is so much text in the museum which is a nightmare to read and is really quite dizzying. Definitely wouldn't go again

A very informative museum starting around the WW2 and going through the ages until after the fall of the wall. Only real issue for us, was the heat inside, it felt stuffy and seamed like the aircon wasn't working. We also had a bit of...More

Sorry, we actually didn't visit the museum, but only took some photos outside by the iconic American-Russian border spot with the sand bags. We saw crowds of tourists getting dressed like American or Russian soldiers - so we just shot our own two photos and...More

Very good for anyone with an interest and frankly we should all have an interest. Particularly good for kids studying this atschool/college. Some really eye opening displays. huge macdonalds across the road so the kids can be fed in very non DDR fashion

The reality of being in Berlin, Brandenburg Gate, the Holocaust Memorial, walking the wall and of course, Checkpoint Charlie. So much history here, it left a lump in my throat.

Worth a visit to Checkpoint Charlie just to say you've been there. Good photo opportunity. A great gift shop.

We came to see Checkpoint Charlie obviously and had every intention of going in to the Museum. When we went inside and looked at the racks, they had information booklets in every language : except English. There wasn't even a space where they should have...More

I can't seem to find a spot to review Checkpoint Charlie per se, just the Mauermuseum, which I did not enter, so will put my review here and hope people will see it. The checkpoint today on Friedrichstrasse is not the same little shack it...More

It's good there is text in 4 languages. However the text is just jammed onto the walls into every space. There is little effort to distinguish a overall storyline from the detailed information.

Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can
both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central
neighbourhood is beginning a new chapter. In the
1950s and '60s, Turkish guest workers settled around
Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and '90s,
rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a
carefree life here. An old hospital even became a
hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today

I would encourage you to try and fit in both the Topography of Terror and the Museum at Check Point Charlie. Each gives a good summary of different eras of Berlin's and Germany's history. The former is all about the Nazi... More
