  • 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.

Ticket purchase easy. Rebooking no problem. Just put the ticket under the scan and off you go. Interesting journey through history, politics, freedom and adventure. The drawn pictures of prisoners/escapees from North Korea were the most lasting. Shocking what people can do to other people. All in all we were about 2 hours in this museum - albeit without an audio guide, which I would recommend in retrospect. Definitely recommended!

We were very pleased. Especially my grandchildren (14 and 9 years old) were, how should I put it, touched, no rather moved, affected ?? everything that was tried at the time to escape from this regime. It was very touching. Especially for me, since I left for the western sector with my mother before the Wall was built.

The museum itself was really good and really informative but on the day we were there, a number of people were going around pressuring people to give donations. They were quite rude and refused to take no for an answer. When my partner eventually gave them some money they said it wasn’t enough and they wanted more. We were followed around by atleast 4 people which ruined it a little for myself and my partner and a lot of other visitors that day.
