This museum and documentation center is a former forced labour camp from the 1940s. It's hosted in the barracks used to lodge the prisoners, which adds to the experience of understanding how it felt to be a part of this evil experiment. There are a few exhbitions with different topics, that are interactive, modern and done in an interesting way.... More

In a residential area, easily found from S Bahn. Spent an interesting time going around the huts. Look out for cards in hotel.

I visited here on Christmas Day. It was easy to find, about a 10 minute walk from the S bahn station and the walk was well signposted. The man working that day was really helpful, informative and friendly. The exhibitions were in English as well as German and there was also a free audio guide. The exhibitions were multi media...

It's fantastic that an exhibit like this is free to visit. There was an almost overwhelming amount of information on display, and it was obvious that a great deal of effort and care was put into making it interesting and engaging. It was multimedia (as in pictures, video, sound, artefacts) with presentation just as good as any paid exhibition

Small but nice museum, with very nice audio guide, interactive points, pictures, life stories both audio and video, very informative, it doesn't take too long to visit, which is a nice feature for a museum to visit during a few days vacation in Berlin, and admission in free! If you want to know what forced labor meant and what means... More

We saw this premises advertised on a mini card display in our hotel (These cards are always worth a look, we have saved ourselves lots of cash with them). Having promised ourselves a trip out to Kopenick to visit the FC Union fan shop we decided to take a detour and visit this camp. We took the S Bahn to... More

Thank you Marc for your comment, indeed, as promised we are finished. We know, people never believe exhibitions are getting finished when seeing the chaos up front. We opened the new exhibition on May, 7th and it's well accepted. Also the minicards will get a make over. We now offer an exhibition completely in German and English, and yes, we... More

I have been to the Forced Labour Camp at Schöneweide twice. There are various displays that chart the history of the camp and the prisoners that lived in the barracks buildings. At the moment the information is only provided in German but this is going to change from 07 May 2013 when a new exhibition will be opened and it... More

Thank you bigal, for your comment on us. We now opened our new exhibition about two weeks ago and hope, you will come back to visit us one day. Thank you as well for the pictures you put in here. We're always interested in how visitors are "seeing" us. Best wishes from Berlin, Juliane More
