There was too much to read - I love books but this was practically pages upon pages of tiny text flung all over the walls.. and unfortunately not much else. There were less than a handful of genuine pieces, a lot of papier mache sculptures and paper models, but nothing of substance except a couple of cars and some factory... More

There is so much in the museum it is a pity it is organised in what seems to be such a random and confusing way. The room numbers jump about and it is very easy to get things in the wrong chronological order. Worth seeing, but not as good as it could be. Don't forget to get to see the... More

We thought we'd spend a couple of hours here tops, including the bunker tour,but it was so informative we ended up spending 4-5 hours in total. As another review says there is so much info you need to pace yourself. We had an hour and a half to look round before the English speaking bunker tour,and that was not enough.... More

Using modern equiment and a hands-on approach this very interesting musem temps you to stay for a few hours. The icing on the cake is the visit to a still functional nuclear shelters. 3600 people, selected on a first come first served basis, can stay there for 14 days. After that, there is no more food and no more power... More

Well done, takes about 3-4 hours to really see everything. Definitely do the bunker tour! Pace yourself so you don't get too bogged down at the beginning with reading. My only criticism is that there isn't much in the way of recent history.

Worth a visit to this museum to read about the history of Berlin and to see the many exhibits on show. As a history buff I thoroughly enjoyed it but my wife, who is not a history buff, also thought it excellent. As with most other attractions if you have a Welcome Card you get 25% off the entrance fee... More

Such a great place. Really enjoyed the museum, very interactive and lots of photo opportunities. The tour of the nuclear shelter was amazing, never seen anything like it. Great tour guide, very informative. Would 100% recommend. Very good value.

The museum itself was woefully uninformative and uninteresting - some models, mood lighting and set piece scenes that were fairly disjointed and felt more like a "lead in" to some kind of exhibit than an exhibit in itself. The bunker underneath the shopping centre was mildly interesting, but the touring group was too large and our guide not loud enough,... More

This was a very moving and informative exhibition, well put together and laid out, with added areas for extra information if you wanted to explore anything further but the story of what happened clear to follow and understand. Well worth visiting and allow at least 2 hours

The museum itself was a bit disappointing - fragmented displays where style seemed to win over substance - but there were some interesting bits (e.g. going through the rise of Hitler and then the post-war aftermath and the fall of the wall). However, the guided tour of the fallout shelter made it worthwhile - really drove home the precarious position... More
