This tour was Ok but not great. The best part was going down into the bunker and hearing the plan to house people during the cold war for a few weeks while the rest of Berlin was on their own. Of course it was never used but kind of a fun tour. Nothing too exciting.

The museum was expensive ($12) but not worth it. Poorly organized, superficial information and not "multimedia" as advertised (unless you consider background music as multimedia). The only cool part was the trip to the bunker, but it is fast. I would suggest to find another way to visit a bunker.

Wow! I have to say I'm pretty floored by the number of good reviews because I thought it was a shocker! As my friend said "did you learn anything?" And the answer was a definitive no. There was no semblance of order or flow, and multi-media? Do me a favour. From there we went to the Jewish Museum and the... More

I took my 13 year old daughter today before going on for her promised shopping trip. We were amazed that we spent over two hours here & especially impressed (& creeped out) by the bunker tour. Great interactive displays captured our imaginations & it got better as we progressed through the exhibition. The bunker tour was amazing & worth the... More

I was skeptical at first, wondering how a little museum in a mall off the Kurfurstendamm could be anymore more than a tourist trap curiosity - and I wondered about their claim that I would need 2 hours to experience 800 years of Berliner history - and that we would visit a real atomic fallout shelter. Boy was I wonderfully... More

The tour of the bunker was interesting, both to visit an actual bunker and to learn about how people thought about the looming threat of nuclear attacks thirty odd years ago. The exhibition was a disappointment, we found it hard to follow any timeline and some parts of it went largely unexplained.

Thoroughly enjoyed the tour of the Nuclear bomb shelter, it was something different! The exhibition itself was interesting and it didn't just focus on modern history like the majority of museums in Berlin. Definitely worth the visit

This museum provides a great introduction to the city, but I wish I'd had more time to do it justice, particularly as it's a bit off the usual tourist routes unless you're into shopping on the Kurfuerstendamm. I agree with other reviewers that the layout is a bit confusing - you need to visit the rooms sequentially, but they're not... More

There was too much to read - I love books but this was practically pages upon pages of tiny text flung all over the walls.. and unfortunately not much else. There were less than a handful of genuine pieces, a lot of papier mache sculptures and paper models, but nothing of substance except a couple of cars and some factory... More

There is so much in the museum it is a pity it is organised in what seems to be such a random and confusing way. The room numbers jump about and it is very easy to get things in the wrong chronological order. Worth seeing, but not as good as it could be. Don't forget to get to see the... More
