Since 1987 a permanent exhibition at the site where the headquarters of the Secret State Police, the SS and the Reich Security Main Office were located during the “Third Reich” has been providing information to the public about the most important institutions of National Socialist persecution and terror. The documentary exhibition conveys the European dimensions of the Nazi reign of terror.

The external space ties the wall into the former Gestapo HQ, with a well-displayed timeline and historical facts, which strike a fitting balance and can only serve to mute visitors. Inside there is almost two much information - read as much as you dare -...More

Beautiful building upon the site of what was a chamber of horrors. Displays easily understood with English explanations/captions. The audio visual desks are well worth spending some time at. Again English captions/explanations. Recommended

This is an excellent piece of the Berlin Wall were you can feel,the emotion of what happened . It is well preserved and there is acsection behind the wall with boards giving you loads of information. Be prepared for a lot of reading.

Shouldn't miss this exhibition if you come to Berlin. The city and country's recognition and openness of its past is sobering.

Hanna Arendt's the banality of evil came to mind. How a normal city with normal people goes insane. It is a memory lane worth visiting

Incredible to see the wall, plus all the other history included about the war so much information to take on board, be prepared for a lot of reading. And for some moving stories.

There are a bunch of photos and info and you can not read anything because is only in german. So, if you don't speak german, is senseless to go there

There is an outdoor display - it duplicates the indoor display. I recommend the indoor unless the museum is closed. It is free and no reservation required.

Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can
both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central
neighbourhood is beginning a new chapter. In the
1950s and '60s, Turkish guest workers settled around
Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and '90s,
rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a
carefree life here. An old hospital even became a
hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today

The closest stations are Potsdamer Platz (U + S bahn), Kochstraße (U bahn) and Anhalter Bahnhof (S bahn) which are more or less equidistant.

No it is not a museum per se, more like an outdoor exhibition and you don't need to book.
