“A GREAT WAY TO SEE BERLIN DURING THE COLD WAR”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2013

If you think you've seen it all when it comes to Berlin, the allies, the Soviets than you have to see one more museum. The Allied Museum is a great place to visit to see a great collection of artifacts that show you parts of the life in Berlin after the war. It's out of the way a bit, but than it's not that crowded and it's free.

“Remembering those who made it possible...”
4 of 5 bubbles 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.

“Some intersting things here”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2013

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.

“another point of Berlin history”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2013

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.
