Really informative, engaging and interesting story of the wall. On the site of some escapes and showdowns. Personal stories and gives a great insight into life with the Berlin Wall.

Museum itself is very poorly organized, and difficult to follow a logical sequence of the visit. Audio tour is poorly done. Take a photo at the checkpoint, and skip the museum itself. It is overpriced and poorly curated, and really adds minimal value over what...More

It is a good place to go if you have a plenty of time to explore a lot of fantastic documents of this period. But be advised that is a very tight and a kind of claustrophobic place. And these get worst because is a...More

We visited the museum with 2 teenage children. There are some interesting exhibits with ingenious adaptations which reflect how desperate people were to cross the border. The only downside to me was the amount of wall information boards you had to read - seemed excessive...More

Stopped here for a short while on a tour. Actual checkpoint is a replica but gives some sense of what it might have been like. Wasn't tempted by museum. Was tempted by the cafe on the corner for a 50cent trip to toilet. Generally place...More

This is the checkpoint, where another world war almost started. So if you are into history, this point can not be skipped.

Lots of exciting exhibits about the Cold War & experiences of people crossing the Wall at or near Checkpoint Charlie. But the museum seems to be a series of independent rooms, maybe with some curation it could be converted to a more coherent, chronological history...More

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

Yes, you can. No need to worry about that. On the other hand, the price is not worth the "experience". Anyway, it's your choice, Aidan. Good luck!

As far as I have heard it is not a legal stamp and could make entry to various countries difficult. They will at least query it
