This is a good WWII museum worth your attention. Housed in an old movie theater, it's small enough to explore and enjoy in a few hours, and has a unique layout and exhibit presentation. The neighborhood itself (Dahlem) is also interesting in that it has many embassies and is a clear remnant of the American Sector of West Berlin and... More

I believe that the name of the museum is a little bit misleading. The allies are somewhere in the background, but the key topic of the exhibitions is Cold War Berlin on both sides of the wall. The exhibits and their story is interesting, however to learn the most, pay special attention to the exhibition of 100 special artifacts with... More

Super staff! Very helpful and friendly. The museum is free but it does take some effort to get out there; however, it is well worth the effort. The 100+ objects in the museum tell the story of a divided Germany and are arranged a little oddly with a fan-style guide that you take with you throughout the museum to discover... More

This is a lovely place to visit - so much history. There's even a few pieces of the Berlin Wall with graffiti on them (original graffiti). There's also like a second museum outside the first main building museum which is worth spending some time in.

This museum is well worth the visit. It is about 25 minutes out of Berlin by car, Expalins a lot what happened in Berlin after the war. Not to be missed.

This is a relatively small museum showing the part the allies played in keeping West Berlin going during the period of the Cold War. The original checkpoint Charlie is here along with a French troop train car and a British troop plane. It is wel done without being overwhelming.

Our Princess Cruise Tour took us here and we are pleased that they did. This is quite a bit out of the way from town center but it is worth the visit. It is free. There are several permanent exhibitions both indoor and outdoor and things of interest. The real Checkpoint Charlie structure is located here. There is also a... More

Well presented history of how the allies sorted out the occupation of Germany immediately following the surrender, with particular emphasis on Berlin, the division of sectors, the subsequent blockade by Russia, the famous allied air lift, the wall going up, and finally down. It takes a few hours, lots of reading, but you come away better informed. I thought it... More

If you are seriously military minded then you will find this very interesting, but for the average tourist its mainly a collection of things to look at and a short visit. Probably deserves more respect than I gave it, as the accumulation of all the memorabilia has taken a lot of work.

This museum is a little far from most,of the activity but is where the allies were located. There is a film in the old American cinema building. Outside there is a plane and a rail car used to get supplies into West Berlin and the last original building from Checkpoint Charlie. There is also a section of the wall and... More
