The museum intends to tell the story of the city of Berlin in a 'alternative' way. The visitor follows a kind of timeline and is presented elements of Berlins history in a thematic manner. This leads to a chaotic impression with remarcable few original objects on display.

All our party learnt a lot. Found the visit to the bunker very moving and very informative. The self led exhibitions were a little haphardly laid out but in general good especially appreciated the English explanations throughout.

Got the app beforehand and it was helpful for visit. The self guided tour takes about 2 hours and there is a lot of information to take in. May be a bit much for small children. The bunker tour is interesting, worth a visit especially as it is included in the adult ticket price. You get money off the adult... More

Fabulous for children and adults alike, this amazing museum covers Berlin history in more digestible chunks than the German Historical Museum by focusing on Berlin only, and by making it's target audience family orientated. The cost of your admission ticket also covers a tour of the bunker next door which, although eerie, is incredibly fascinating. There are interactive exhibits throughout... More

This is a very interesting, well-laid out museum. And you get to go in a real nuclear attack air-raid shelter. That bit is guided - the English tours are every two hours, so look up when they are. We arrived 5 mins too late, but they were not busy and a really helpful member of staff took us down. :-)

A very interesting and varied museum giving a real insight into the history of this City. A great attraction to set the scene at the beginning of your trip. Would thoroughly recommend doing the Bunker Tour - they run every alternate hour in English. You are taken underground to see a civil nuclear bunker with a very informed guided tour.... More

This attraction is available at a discount with the Berlin Card, we arrived just in time for a bunker tour, interesting and pretty chilling, but let down slightly by the lack of interaction from the others on the tour, making the narration a bit disjointed. Going into the museum, the exhibitions went right back to the formations of the city,... More

This is a fabulous and we'll laid out exhibition taking you through the story and history of Berlin. The artifacts and the historical importance they convey cannot be missed. There is also a tour of one of the cold war bunkers, brought to life by our guide, Dara. Do not miss out on this amazing slice of history.

My family and I went to this great modern museum and it was a great experience. The museum is organized into rooms to display the different time periods. The story is told in terms of society, historic events, culture, religion and wars. The visit ended with a tour of a huge bunker below. Plan with at least two hours for... More

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
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.
