It's a little messy, and looks that this meseum just put things together. But the decoration and multimedia things are really flashy. I'll recommend joining a bunker tour especially people wants to know more about old times of Berlin.

This museum is normally not in top list of the city and it's also not easy to find (inside a gallery in Ku'damm), but it's amazing! I strongly recommend the visit for the ones who appreciate history... Modern, interactive, and very complete!

We found this place to be yet another overpriced (even with Berlin Welcome Card discount) museum lacking lots and happy to skip over some history.

I only became aware of this place because of its close proxmity to the Hotel (Hampton by Hilton) I had booked and thought it would be a good place to go on the afternoon of our arrival in Berlin. This proved to be an excellent choice. At first it was hard to find as rather than a separate building, it... More

This museum is an attraction by itself. It's a very modern and creative story telling of Berlins and Germany's history. Educational as well as arty and informative. There is also a bunker underneath that you can go and look at with a tour, that will give you an idea how people must have felt during the war, even though thankfully... More

This was one of the first places i went to in Berlin to learn about the city history and German history. Information about the world wars, the Berlin wall and the crimes committed against the Jewish people. Lots to look at and read and at around 4pm there is a English tour of one of the bomb shelters. Great way... More

This was a really good start to our weekend in Berlin. If there is one museum to visit in a weekend then this is it - to put the whole history of the city in context. Wall museums, museum island and even the currywurst museum doesn't cover it all. But waht really made the visit for me was the visit... More

Excellent, easy-to-follow collection of historical data, chronologically arranged, very appealingly and vividly arranged, with images, graphics, photos, videos, impressive films, and sounds telling the story of Berlin from its early development to these days. Allow +2 hours to read and listen to all the information available.

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
Charlottenburg
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighborhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theaters close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
