The Topography of Terror lies on the same ground where the head quarters of the Gestapo and the SS were. This area was the background for the bone-chilling acts that were done during Hitler’s reign. Today this Museum has an out-door and indoor display that exhibits the history of the place and all the events associated with it.
The museum is a chilling reminder of the terrible reign. The exhibits speak eloquently of the misery of those who were oppressed by the reign. It reminds the visitor of the tragic past and asks us to question it. There are several permanent as well as some temporary exhibitions that take place here.

If you're in Berlin, you need to take some time to see this museum. It's free, which is always a huge draw. Be sure to walk along the wall and then go inside if you want to get the full experience. It's a lot of information and pictures, but very informative. Highly recommend for anyone who's traveling through Berlin!
This historical display has both interesting outdoor and indoor components. The inside exhibit is super comprehensive and goes through the timeline of the Third Reich from it's beginning to it's end at the conclusion of World War 2. It takes about an hour and half to go through everything in reasonable detail, and I highly recommend for anyone interested in learning about the historical details.
Incredibly moving museum and DEFINITELY worth a visit. Firstly it's free which can't be said for all museums in Berlin and incredibly informative. Found myself moved to tears by the detail the museum gives, giving a real understanding of how terror was imposed in those days. Best museum in Berlin, truly exceptional and very educational in an interesting manner.
Visited on a recent trip to Berlin, and must say out of all places i visited it was the one that stood out for me. Brilliant experience and very well presented, and seemed to interest a large cross section of age groups. Very thought provoking and worth a visit.
This is a very informative museum that is very modern and well laid out. There's a lot of information presented to you, but be aware that all this information is presented in text and pictures. There are no artifacts and only a few interactive screens to look at. This is great for most people, but those with kids will most likely find their time cut short. Still, it's completely free and is absolutely worth a visit while you are in Berlin. The information is also presented in English.
