Located adjacent to one of the few remaining sections of the Berlin Wall, The Wall Museum at East Side Gallery opened in 2016. The museum exhibits the history of the Berlin Wall in a multimedia presentation comprising 13 staged rooms.

The elaborate exhibit makes use of over one hundred projectors and interactive displays leading you on a journey from the end of World War II, through the dividing of Germany, the construction of the Wall, the years of the wall, and its 1989 demise leading to the reunification of Germany.

It is also a story about how the wall affected the people and the even the world. It seeks to honour those who lost their lives in search of freedom. The Wall Museum will bring you face to face with a dark time in history, but also shows how people can come together to fight oppression and promote freedom.

The adjacent East Side Gallery is the longest single portion of the wall that remains standing. Its entire 1.3 kilometre length has been painted by graffiti artists, many of whom are very talented. It's definitely worth taking a stroll along this remnant from the Cold War.

The Wall Museum is easy to get to by public transit or by car. The U1 is the best train option, getting you within short walking distance.
