The museum was interesting, and after having been to Berlin several times and having explored the wonderful sites I was still amazed by how little I knew. The came the nuclear bunker. Wow. Mind blowing and terrifying. Even if the museum is not your cup of tea, I urge you to take the tour to the bunker.

Well i wasn't expecting this its so unreal that this is underneath the main street in Berlin, the size of it is way beyond huge and looking around this place i don't think that i would be able to cope down there, its big but if this place was up and running it would be crowned with people with basic...

This was a really good place to visit. I would highly recommend going there as I think it is really good value for money and you learn so much about Germany not just the war but about everything germany has to offer. The bunker your was brilliant with a brilliant tour guide. Highly recommended

After visiting many museums that focused on WWII, it was nice to have a broader perspective of German history and more specifically Berlin's history. The set up of the museum is engaging with videos, separate rooms, clear timelines and interactive elements. The Bunker visit was very interesting and definitely worth doing.

Great tour of the underground bunker - gives you a great idea of what it would have been like. Tour guide swapped easily between German & English. We went for this part of the tour so anything extra was a bonus. It was quite interactive so would keen kids entertained

The Story of Berlin goes through several centuries, so it has an enormous size. I found the exhibition too detailed, sometimes I had no time to read the explanations, sometimes I was lost in details. The exhibition started to be serious around the broken shopwindow, and became quite depressive after that as we literally went down: the nazis, the WWII... More

Having read the reviews, of course we had high expectations. And there is really so much one can do with the history of Berlin. It definitely was very ambitious. But it did not succeed to its full potential. On the downside: A lot of small text to read at each stop to get the full story, and difficult to understand... More

The first few rooms are way back in German history which may not be of interest to some, me included, but after room 17, which you have to go through some vertical blinds for, I say this because I went through but my friend didn't and she went all the way back to the way we entered the museum, the...

A great museum with lots of history and facts. At the same time it's very visual and good for kids. The wardrobe is also free. The museum has lots of stairs and I didn't see any elevator, so it might be hard for a wheel chair to get around. The tour of the atomic bunker was however disappointing. It was... More
