Family Talks: 30 years on, the fall of the Berlin Wall

9 November 2019

This year marks 30 years since the fall of the Berlin Wall. Perhaps the most iconic and defining moment of the Cold War.

To commemorate this momentous event, which signalled the end of the Cold War, on Saturday 9 November we will be holding three family friendly talks at 11.30am, 12.30pm and 2.30pm in the National Cold War Exhibition that will cover:

How the Berlin Wall was built and why
Brave escape attempts and the ways authorities detected escapees
The momentous events of 9 November 1989

Don’t forget to get your pass stamped by the Border Guard as you go through the “crossing point”, or to take a photograph of yourself in front of an original piece of the Wall as displayed in our Berlin Wall Hotspot in the National Cold War Exhibition.
