The Boros bunker is a must visit for those that enjoy contemporary art. The collection is house in a world war two bunker whose austerity and history make it a perfect backdrop for contempory art. You must book a tour and they limit the number to 12 guests per 90 minute period. The guide we had was excellent and spoke... More

The guides are excellent, the history of the building is fascinating and the art is really good. I'm not an expert on modern art by any means, but the guide was so good that it didn't matter. Book in advance since the place is so popular!

This is a must even if you do not care for contemporary art. An amazing private art collection displayed in a 5 storey bunker. The building itself is worth a visit. Our guide was excellent explaining the history of the bunker and the art installations in a way that we could understand the artists point of view. Definitely worth 90... More

Well, this was the only bunker Art Gallery I've ever seen. But, that said, contemporary and modern art is fantastic only if one takes time to study the art and the artist's point of view and skill. Out English speaking guide, a former art history student, was superb. Oh the stories she told! How grand to navigate about in the... More

The four storey bunker, built with the intention of being clad in marble after the war, as part of a victorious Germania is facinating. Unfortunately for me the art collection it now houses was less inspiring. Call me a philistine but very few of the "installations" excited and most required the earnest and informative guide to explain their "meaning". Worth... More

Visits to the Boros Collection are by guided tour only, since the top floor is a private residence. Advance reservations are easy to obtain on their internet website, and tickets do not have to be purchased until arrival (currently 12 euro). The guide provides very useful background information, in English or German depending on the tour selected. No photos are... More

Boros bunker is one of the finest private modern art collections in Europe, so if you are an art enthusiast you must not miss it. I was lucky enough to get there without booking in advance. One of the biggest advantages of this exhibition is the professional guide who will walk you through the Bunker history, Boros family and the... More

first thing - order tickets at least 2-3 weeks before - it gets pretty full fast + there are only guided tours. the art gallery holds many different project from various artist around the world. the setting is unique and has a very interesting history.

I was in Berlin for 12 days starting June 5. I really wanted to see this. I did not have an advance reservation, but just happened to walk in just as an English tour was starting. On the half hour, don't remember if it was at 1 or 1:30. I found the art to be pretty cool but not as... More
