“Too little to see”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2014 via mobile

What you'll see here: 1 airplane, 2 jeeps, a few uniforms and paraphernalia (mostly from 1945-1950), a few newspapers and manuals, some info on the splitting of Berlin and on the Airlift "bridge to Berlin". Add some archive newsreels from 1950/1990 and that's it...
I wasn't bored, I've had something to see. But if I'd have been on a tight schedule or a history buff, I would have been really disappointed.

I enjoyed this museum because of the exhibits. There is information about the Berlin Airlift and displays of photographs and memorabilia.

“Very interesting museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014

This museum has a lot of exhibits It is situated in an old movie theatre. There is a lot of material on the Berlin airlift after World War II, which is often a forgotten part in other museums. There are some very interesting displays outlining the role of some German speaking American soldiers during World War II. There are some good films on display and many interesting exhibits. It is situated a bit of the way out of Berlin but it is not too far to walk from the station. It has a different slant from other museums and we found it very interesting.

“Disappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 December 2013

When compared to museums dedicated to 'the East' there is a vast room for improvement. Hastings aircraft that was stationed at Gatow and the spy tunnel from Altglenieke aside we whizzed round. A large area devoted to music of the GIs was, well, boring. Berlin airlift had potential but not very well presented. Was it worth a special trip out of our way - I would say no.

“Superb venue with excellent exhibits spend Sunday here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 September 2013

My father in law flew in the Berlin air lift so we were delighted that we were in Berlin on a Sunday to look round this amazing place. We were overwhelmed by the information that was provided and what was available to look at.

On Sunday there is an opportunity to go into the plane they have on site and watch a film on the airlift. We bought our tickets and queued at the bottom of the steps. One of the people we had spoken to earlier came to us and said that once we had looked over the plane he had arranged for us to watch the film in English in the main building! We were stunned by this kindness.

Lovely staff and a lot of fascinating information about this often forgotten international collaboration to save the lives of the citizens of Berlin
