Since 1987 a permanent exhibition at the site where the headquarters of the Secret State Police, the SS and the Reich Security Main Office were located during the “Third Reich” has been providing information to the public about the most important institutions of National Socialist persecution and terror. The documentary exhibition conveys the European dimensions of the Nazi reign of terror.

The way in which this is presented is excellent. The information and maps really tell the history. This was certainly our most memorable places to visit in Berlin. You can see were the original buildings were located which for me brought reality to the exhibit.

Definitely a good place to visit. Nice outdoor space and a very educational exhibition inside. Either breeze through or spend a long time. There is a ton to read, lots of pictures to look at. But a great place for kids other than the outside.

This is a place that definitely needs a visit. The information inside is displayed on large boards with lots of historic photographs. Many of the photographs are graphic, especially the ones of the camp prisoners in both life and death. It is heartbreaking. It is...More

It should be essential for all younger people to visit this place and see how people can be corrupted and the pain and suffering that this then brings.

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

The closest stations are Potsdamer Platz (U + S bahn), Kochstraße (U bahn) and Anhalter Bahnhof (S bahn) which are more or less equidistant.

No it is not a museum per se, more like an outdoor exhibition and you don't need to book.
