Owner description: Located in an old American movie theater, this museum houses a collection of exhibits on the history of the Allied forces from 1945 to 1994.
Reviewed 7 May 2013

This museum, located in the former US Army Cinema Hall near the former HQs of the US Armed Forces, traces the history of divided Berlin through the lenses of the American, British, and French armed forces. By highlighting the allied airlift and other memorable events the exhibit shows how thanks to the Allied servicemen West Berlin stayed free and later German reunification was made possible.

This was quite a way out on the train, but we went as it had been recommended. It had some intersting things on the Airlift in Berlin, but most of the rest of the stuff had been covered better in other museums. Outside the airplane would have been of interest, but the staircase to enter it had been roped off. Likewise the Checkpoint Charlie booth was locked so you couldn't enter it. We did feel that it took longer to travel there and back, than to keep us interested.

Nice museum exhibits and documantaions of the cold war thru the point of view of the allied countries (US, UK, Frans) in west Berlin In the period 1945-1994.
Exhibits includes: vehicles, one airplane, uniforms ,weapons and many original documents including personal letters.
One wall is dedicated to jews berlin-born that fought or served in the allied’s army during WW2 (like Henry Kissinger)

One of the exhibits that impress me is part of the “spy tunnel”
That used to listen to the Russia army communication until exposed by George Blake (the double agent).
The museum consist of two buildings separate by open yard.

Transportation: U3 to Oskar-Helene-Heim (5 min walk to north) or bus 115.
The museum is free of charge.
5 min walk north to the museum is Mcdonald.

The Allied Museum at 135 Clayallee in Berlin, Germany is located on what was the USMilitary housing area for dependants during the Cold War. I was stationed in Berlin with the US Army from 1969-72 during this period. The museum has the Real "Checkpopit Charloie" building and many of the memories of the Cold War, Berlin Airlift, and what was really going on during this period of time.
