House at Checkpoint Charlie

The Wall Museum - House at Checkpoint Charlie Berlin

Here you can experience Berlin history within your grasp.

The Wall Museum not only reports on the history of the Berlin Wall, but also shows the challenges and experiences of East German refugees in the struggle for their freedom and democracy. You will find some extremely inventive original objects, such as an old Volkswagen with a boot hiding place, a mini submarine, a suitcase that has been pushed together or a hot-air balloon. The Wall Museum is a museum with charm and wit, but above all also for reflection.
Sometimes one is surprised about the inventiveness, but then again almost moved to tears. It makes it a little clearer what people had to experience at that time and what they risked everything to flee. The house at Checkpoint Charlie offers free permanent exhibitions such as "From Gandhi to Walesa", "NATO Mission for Freedom" and "Raoul Wallenberg lives", which look beyond Berlin and Germany. A visit is definitely recommended, but you should take some time to read the many texts, exhibits and stories.

Brief history of the Wall Museum

Founded in 1963 from Rainer Hildebrandt's private collection, the Wall Museum has probably become the most interesting and credible museum you have ever visited after more than five decades. This is probably because it has grown organically over the last 50 years. Since then, the collection has been continuously expanded, primarily by documenting various failed and failed escape attempts and escape objects of various kinds.
