The museum is a little of the way, but worth visiting for a trip down to the nuclear bunker if nothing else. Upstairs the exhibits are good.

I really enjoyed my visit to this museum. The bunker tour was very good and our guide,Caitlin was excellent. The rest of the museum covers all of Berlin's history and the sections on WW2 and divided Berlin were very informative. Well worth a visit!

Went to Berlin, 2 weeks ago and it was just not for me If you like a museum your fine, but I don't, gave the story of Berlin a try but nothing was very structured so you never really learned much about the place I cant believe the people that have given it good reviews as four of us went... More

I absolutely loved this museum. We had a discount with our Berlin Welcome card which *everyone* should get - it covers all train & bus travel and gets you discount at tonnes of places, including here. The staff were very friendly and helpful and held onto my coat and bag for free in the cloakroom. The exhibition was really interesting,... More

To gauge what life would have been like if you had to survive a bomb attack, The Story of Berlin bunker helps to create a picture of this very well. The exhibition itself explains about the history of Berlin covering a period of about 800 years, lots of information to read. I skimmed some of it but read the things... More

Well worth the visit to soak in the story of the city. Good value and informative. Self guided tour with the option of a guided tour in one of Berlins fall out bunkers.

This museum is located in a shopping center. It's a very large and interactive museum. There's a lot to learn and a lot to read, so you should count 2h for a full visit.

We went with our 8 and 10 years old boys that don't speak English so well and they were a bit board. We like the exhibition and the interesting way the info is displayed. The visit to the Atomic bunker was very interesting as well.

The museum looks good, it is very flashy. The problem is that it feels like the information has no flow to it and is quite random. It got better once it got to more recent history like WW2 and the Berlin Wall however by that point we didn't want to waste any more time and left quite quickly. We didn't... 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.
