Though unexpected, the Berlin Wall exhibit is a very important attraction in Rapid City as it is associated with a very significant piece of world history. Two sections of the ‘Berlin Wall’ are placed at this spot in the park as a somber reminder of a dark patch in history where basic freedom of the people was taken from them and a wall was put up to divide the Germans into East and West Germany. There are various articles and pictures at this exhibit which provoke the visitor to give a serious thought to the horrors of war and separation and a reminder of how precious true freedom is.

Berlin Wall Reviews & Ratings
I remember knowing about the Wall in elementary school and that people were killed while trying to leave East Berlin and East Germany. Later I understood the Berlin Airlift by the Allies after WW II. It was very moving to read the different markers, detailing before the wall, during the wall, and after the wall came down. And even more moving to see the two sections on display. The high price of freedom....
I'm not a huge fan of ultra-nationalism, and standing in front of this piece of history genuinely made me feel something. A powerful reminder that we're generally better off together than we are alone.
This park is a blast. One of the best most interesting parks for kids I've seen in any city ever. Easily kill 3 - 6 hours. The parking perhaps wasn't the most convenient, and prepare for full sun exposure as there are few mature trees covering the playground "pads". Otherwise a must, definitely. The added history of the Berlin Wall nearby adds a little something for everyone.
This is a must see for the history buff! It was far more then it looked like when you drive up. We took our kids to see it and learn some more about history. To see it in person was quit unbelievable. They have signs with information about each item. The park that it is set in has a great walking path to take and enjoy. There is a play ground for the kids to blow off some energy. Something for all ages. Great find in Rapid City.
Really neat having such an important little piece of history
