Reconstruction of the Documentation Center

The Documentation Center of the Berlin Wall Memorial is currently closed. The building is going to be completely renovated. When it re-opens it will house a new permanent exhibition, providing an historical overview of events from the period before the Wall was built until the present. The renovations are necessary because the building that was built in 1965 as a parish house for the Protestant Reconciliation Parish and which has served as the Memorialís Documentation Center since 1999 was badly in need of repair.

The Documentation Center is scheduled to re-open with a new exhibition on November 9, 2014, the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Wall.

The viewing platform at the Documentation Center, as well as the Memorialís Visitor Center and open-air exhibition, continue to be open during the remodeling.
