A fascinating, interactive museum about the history of Berlin. After the museum there is a visit to a nuclear bunker. An eery reminder of hyena Cold War era. Well worth a visit. Excellent for school parties.

We visited a number of good museums whilst in Berlin, but this one gave the best overview, in the most interesting way. Good exhibits, well laid out, bit quirky and easy to find. Includes a tour of a Nuclear Bunker, which reminded me of the dark days of the Cold War and the threat of nuclear war. I would advise... More

We visited here on our last afternoon in Berlin. As was rated good on TA. The museum was great full of information and set out in quite a quirky way full of informative facts about Berlin's past. The Bunker tour on the other hand felt rushed. We had around 12 people in our group but we didn't have time to... More

it is worth visiting just to see the shelter!!! and if you are interested in history you may find it interesting as well, info from the very beginning of Berlin history to nowadays. At the beginning I found it a bit difficult to follow, there was no clear structure, but it is not a typical history museum, not only dates... More

yes make sure you do the bunker tour, it is the highlight. The rest of the exhibition is informative but hard to follow as you walk round. Lots to take in so ideal rainy day activity. It is in a shopping centre as well so handy for eating after. can get discount with Welcome Berlin card. Use the free cloakroom... More

We visited the museum on our first morning in Berlin which in hindsight was a great thing to do. It gave loads of history and information about the city from the last few hundred years. It wasn't all about World War II or the Wall (although there was a very large section on this) but it also gave earlier history... More

Interesting museum if you are interested in German history. Not just about the wars/DDR but a big mixture. A good choice for a rainy day. Good exhibits and quite big.

I was a little disappointed with the exhibit itself as it didn't seem very well structured - it was a bit all over the place and didn't flow very well. There was also a bit too much to read, I think an audioguide would have been good here. The tour in the bunker was great though, the tour guide was... More
