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

I liked the modern interior with many interesting lights, places, many buttons you can push, things you can pull..if was really playful museum, great way how to attract young people to start to visit museums :) We were only sad that we haven't received our photo from the...

This is on Kurfurstendamm next to the theatre. It is a wonderful walk through the history of Berlin with pictures, themed rooms & loads of objects such as musical instruments, tools, pictures, cars, & so much more. The tour round the nuclear bunker was fascinating & creepy in equal measures. You must visit this 10/10.

A waste of money sadly with few real artefacts and a very poor narrative structure it certainly doesn't do justice to the incredible story of such an interesting city. Tacky and cheap display. With so many wonderful museums in Berlin my advice would be chose another!

This museum starts off promising, but doesn't really deliver until towards the end so make sure you have plenty of time (which we didn't). The bunker visit is well done and peoples questions can be really revealing!! It is fine for older children although I think it is best appreciated by people who have lived with the fear of nuclear... More

I loved this museum! Anybody with even the slightest interest in Berlin's history will enjoy working their way through the models, films and mass of information surrounding every aspect of Berlin. The museum covers everything from Berlin's beginnings to the rise and fall of the wall. With the included tour of the nuclear bomb shelter located in the car park... More
