The infamous border crossing point in the wall dividing West and
East Berlin has now become a shrine to the wall's memory with the
addition of a museum, Haus am Checkpoint Charlie. For nearly three
decades between 1961 and 1990, Checkpoint Charlie in the
Friedrichstrasse was the only crossing point between East and West
Berlin. While the original metal shed is now on display at the
Allied Museum, the soldier's post can be visited, and tourists can
be photographed under the border sign. The Checkpoint Charlie
Museum houses temporary exhibits, and hosts lectures and movies;
