Interesting and powerful learning

Guided tour to the bunker highly recommended! Walking inside the museum you study about the city from the very beginning in a colorful way.

The first time my son and I walked on the Ku'damm we walked straight past this attraction!! Went back the next day and we were glad we did! When you enter its through a small shopping mall which is a little confusing but, follow the red footprints and you're directed to the entrance. The exhibits explore the origins of Berlin... More

Basically its a nulear falout shelter build in the late 60's on the main shopping street, how they managed to keep it secret is anyones guess, the guide was very informative and the visit was a strange surprise. If you have time go check it out.

The Berlin Museum Pass comes with a booklet containing over 50 attractions, giving one the impression that any of these could be visited for free within the three days. This is not the case. Unfortunately the Story of Berlin Museum is one case in point.

We're very sorry that there was obviously a misunderstanding of the museums included in the price of the museum pass handed out by visitBerlin. The pass contains a list that shows up all the museums that are located in Berlin. The state-run museums are mostly free to visit with the pass and included in the price. You can find them... More

A very interesting visit to a wonderful museum. Covers a vast amount of history. The visit to the bunker was a surreal experience.

If you are already in the area this is an OK stop but I would not make a special trip. There is a lot of information available to read on all the signs next to the exhibits. This is helpful unless you get stuck behind a tour group. I walked thru in about 90 min and then waited for the... More

Really excellent tour explaining history of Berlin and it's impact on Germany as a whole. Laid out over 3 floors and has chilling tour of a nuclear bunker under the museum. It does take 2 hours to go round as there's a lot to see and I generally don't take as long to go round as they advise. Very thought... More

Attended the story of Berlin exhibition yesterday as a time filler before our late night flight. After reading reviews on trip advisor I was somewhat apprehensive. English tours run every two hours however we decided to do it independently. The exhibit is interesting however the lay out of events are set out in a somewhat odd manor, jumping 20+ years... More

Thank you for commenting! We always recommend to take the tour. Too bad that you weren't able to see the clear path in the exhibition. With support of several experts we have tried to design the exhibition as thrilling as possible and devided it in different epochs. Therefore the chronology is not always in the front, but the mediation of... More

We visited this museum on our first afternoon in Berlin. A very interesting synopsis of Berlin. I didn't know all of the history so found it very useful to learn about it before discovering other attractions of the city. As part of the admission we did a tour of a bunker built in the 1960s for Berliners in case of... More

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.
