What people are saying about Friedrichstraße
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.
There is a lot going on down in the checkpoint Charlie area. This museum in particular is in an older building and skipping the line was super convenient. We were there during the heat wave in the summer of 2019 and it seems very few places in Germany have A/C so be aware in the summer it gets pretty hot in the building.
The museum lays a hard impression. One better come prepared. 1-2 hours would be sufficient time to see all the materials. The the place is not big though it is impressive. If you are carrying a bag be prepared to leave a deposit 2 euro coin for a locker.
Museum offers an interesting insight into stories that would otherwise be unheard of. Lots of amazing exhibits and plenty of information on each. Would highly recommend the visit.
The museum was informative and interesting, however dragged on a bit with things that weren't really related to the Berlin Wall or Check-Point Charlie.
