Nice museum that explains the story of Berlin from the middle ages to modern times. Can be quite overwhelming, especially in the early times. Don't forget to time your visit so you can go and visit the bunker afterwards. Plan at least 2hrs for the tour. You get a discount if you have the Berlin Pass.

It was interesting for my first visit, however, it would not go back for a follow-up visit. The ticket price is 12 EUR and they are open 9:00 am-5:00 pm. It felt like a modern art exhibit with some history thrown in. They had a gift shop at the end that had some soda and ice cream. Also flags, books... More

We had four days sightseeing in Berlin and Potsdam and this our only disappointment. The exhibits seemed to have no chronological linkage, they were poorly described, if at all, and it was not the learning experience we had hoped it would be. The only redeeming feature was the visit to the nuclear bunker. Not worth the entrance fee.

One hour tour tells you the whole story of Berlin. Good historic experience for those having limited free time

I thought this was a very interesting museum. I enjoyed seeing the Bomb shelter as well under the parking garage. This gives you a very good view of Berlin history over the past centuries. I would go back with visitors at some point...

This museum is absolutely wonderful....informative and interesting. Sadly a non-interested school class had a tour at the same time of our visit and the guide and the noise of the children slightly inconvenienced our visit! Still........a fantastic place to visit if you are interested in the story and history of Berlin!! Make sure you visit the museum while there is... More

It took us 20 mins to get round. The whole experience was boring...with little interactive or compelling. Not much to see or do, all rather limp!

We were with kids and THAT is what they will remember most, together with the WALL OF BERLIN OPEN AIR MUSEAUM, which you should visit first to the STORY OF BERLIN museum....., to give them a life living of what it looked like, that famous WALL.

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.

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.
