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.

Rated 4.2 out of 5The Wall Museum Star Rating

5 Star Rating The wall art goes throughout the whole street. If you are in the area, go to the East Side Mall as well. Also, good restaurants next to the train rails down the street.

5 Star Rating There is a plenty artworks printed all over the wall , I recommend you if you want to visit this place do it at night cause there’s too crowded at the morning and afternoon

5 Star Rating One of The most beautiful things in Berlin. Wall is created for everyone to enjoy it. Walking by the wall is for 15/20 minutes but if you wish to take photos be prepared and patient because this is pedestrian street and people are waiting in lines in front of some walls. This is a free activity if you don’t enter the museum building.

2 Star Rating It was ok, tickets was experience for what's on show, some of the screens wasn't working and areas was closed off like the balcony.
