Museum of the Wall at Checkpoint Charlie (Mauermuseum Haus am Chekpoint Charlie)

  3 Star Sage AccessibilityThe step-free entrance to the Museum of the Wall is through the gift shop at Friedrichstrasse and Kochstrasse.

This is one of the best museums in Berlin with authentic artifacts from the Cold War, the Wall, and escape attempts. It is definitely worth a visit even though only half of it has step-free access. Use the step-free entrance to the gift shop and a staff member will escort you to an elevator to the first floor of the exhibit. A second elevator gets you to the second floor, but you will also have to navigate -3, +3, and +3 steps.
