Thia museum/exhibit is worth a visit if youre in the area, as other reviews have said its not a touristy place and you cannot buy refreshments here. Information is provided in german and english and is very informative. One floor is closed off for a refurb but there is still enough to learn about. A large section of the museum... More

As others have said this memorial is worth hunting down. Resistance to the Nazi's in Berlin was pretty limited from what I can gather from my reading, however this is a sobering memorial to those who did question Hitler's regime, particularly from the inside. The permanent exhibition is currently being reworked so the displays were limited but very worth while.... More

Just spotted this on the day, and decided to drop in en route from our previous destination. It was a good job I'd got it pinpointed on the map as we'd never have found it otherwise. Even when we were inside the courtyard it wasn't obvious where to go to get inside the museum! Inside was a bit taken over... More

As the previous review has said the area is currently under refurbishment so perhaps when it's done you'll get a better sense what happened here. It does give you an eerie feeling knowing what once happened on that spot and there are some story boards giving a brief background of the conspirators and how later German leaders have commemorated their...

We visited in July 2013 after reading about the musuem in the 'Berlin Pass' guide book. This is a bit off the main tourist trail but a must-see if you are at all interested in the story of resistance to the Nazis. The emphasis of the museum is focussed upon the life and career of Von Stauffenberg who tried to... More

Brilliant memorial-museum to those brave enough to resist - usually at great cost. Personally, I was thrilled to see mention of Otto and Elise Hampel, whose stories are told in Hans Fallada's brilliant novel, 'Alone in Berlin' and who dropped anti-Nazi propagandist postcards throughout Berlin over three years.

The Topography of Terror and the Mahn- und Gedenkstatte Steinwache Dortmund have much more extensive information on the German resistance to the Nazis. Also the signs to find this museum are nearly non-existent as if they don't want tourists to visit this museum. Initial floor of the museum is all in German and the next floor has some text in...

Unlike the Jewish Museum up the road, this memorial to Germans who stood up to the Nazis isnt in a jazzy terribly expensive new bit of architecture but a boring ministry building, doesnt have cafes with huge lines waiting for their over priced cappucino, isnt stuffed full of tourists waving cameras - you'll have the place largely to yourself -...

This free museum is off the normal tourist route but is well worth a visit if you are interested in 1930s/1940s history. Located in part of the Bendler Block military HQ which survived the bombing, the museum gives a history of those in Germany who opposed the Nazi regime. There are numerous displays and photographs of opposition from the time... More

The Museum of German Resistance is both an uplifting and also a depressing account of the resistance which German citizens and soldiers presented to the Naxis. What I hadn´t realised is quite how many different people and organisations (the church, union activists, students, teachers, ordinary citizens etc) took on the dictator and his brutal henchmen, which helps dispel the idea...
