This museum is really unusual from the museums I have already visited. I liked the modern interior with many interesting lights, places, many buttons you can push, things you can pull..if was really playful museum, great way how to attract young people to start to visit museums :) We were only sad that we haven't received our photo from the...

This is on Kurfurstendamm next to the theatre. It is a wonderful walk through the history of Berlin with pictures, themed rooms & loads of objects such as musical instruments, tools, pictures, cars, & so much more. The tour round the nuclear bunker was fascinating & creepy in equal measures. You must visit this 10/10.

A waste of money sadly with few real artefacts and a very poor narrative structure it certainly doesn't do justice to the incredible story of such an interesting city. Tacky and cheap display. With so many wonderful museums in Berlin my advice would be chose another!

This museum starts off promising, but doesn't really deliver until towards the end so make sure you have plenty of time (which we didn't). The bunker visit is well done and peoples questions can be really revealing!! It is fine for older children although I think it is best appreciated by people who have lived with the fear of nuclear... More

I loved this museum! Anybody with even the slightest interest in Berlin's history will enjoy working their way through the models, films and mass of information surrounding every aspect of Berlin. The museum covers everything from Berlin's beginnings to the rise and fall of the wall. With the included tour of the nuclear bomb shelter located in the car park... More

While we were expecting a full overview of the history of Berlin, the great assets are the period of WW1, the interim, WW2 and the Cold War. Yes, the period before that is certainly covered, but it lacks artefacts. The period on the 20th century is quite good and gives good contextual information. The visit to the bunker is great... More

This is a museum that even museum haters will like. Because you don't stare at walls, you touch, you pull, you listen, you get scared and impressed. Also, get the bunker tour, it's like a zombie apocalipse training ;)

One of the best museums that I have been to. Interactive and informative. Loved it. Particularly fascinated by the WWII section. An excellent half day. Couple this with half a day at the Reischtag, a bus tour and a visit to Brandenburg Gate and you get a real feel for Berlin.
