Original wall in its original location. Interesting to read the grafitti all over.

Berlin-Kreuzberg, Germany

As the name suggests, this free open air museum is not for the easily distressed. Built on the sight of of the former headquarters of the SS and Gestapo it takes you on a cleverly designed timeline through the terrible occurrences of World War Two.

Local from Berlin, Germany

I recommend this museum because it's free, well educational and quite moving. It's divided between outdoor (along a piece of Berlin Wall) and indoor, in the exact, haunted place that housed the Gestapo and SS headquarters. The documentation centre explains in depth how the Nazis built up the propaganda and spread terror to keep the population quiet. Gestapo, SS, and Reich Security worked on isolating the oppositions and eliminating people with disabilities, different races, or political and religious beliefs. It's all written both in German and English.

On the former Gestapo Headquarters, this exhibition explains lengthy and accurately the rise and fall of the Third Reich. There are lots of panels with time lines, photographs and tons of information on the matter. Lots of reading, so it is probably not for children.
There is also a remaining section of the Wall on the same place.
The whole attraction is free and close to the Holocaust Memorial.

The former headquarters of the Gestapo and SS now houses an exhibition of the history of the Nazi Party and the horrifying events of World War II.

Located on a large plot of land that used to house both the Gestapo and SS (the buildings were bombed during the war and bulldozed afterwards), this is now an outdoor exhibition and indoor documentation centre - along with a surviving chipped section of the old Wall. Interesting for history buffs, and it's free.

Ehemalige HQ der SS, die Austellung ist sehr infornativ und interessant, auch ganz traurig. Wir mussen uns dieses Geschichte lernen so, dass wir es nicht wiedermachen.
