Went here on the advice of a friend and it was a real highlight of our visit to Berlin. Vlad, the owner/artist/curator/director is a very entertaining host and a great artist in his own right. Full of stories and facts about the very comprehensive collection of bizarre and surreal articles he has amassed over the years. Great for photographs (... More

My wife located this gallery on the web. When I visited Berlin last weekend I made it a point to visit. Very cool industrial surreal installation by Vlad, a talented artist and photographer from Moscow. It's a step into a curiosity zone - leave your preconceived notions at the door and prepare to be inspired and amazed ! Absolutely worth... More

Interesting place to learn surrealism, yet not very interesting things. the owner is a bit too much present with his stories. We wouldn't advice this place, unless you know what you'll get into.

Definitely worth checking this out if you have an hour to kill. Try and chat to the director, very interesting and informative guy.

This place was definitely a highlight of our trip so far. So much interesting stuff to look at and photograph. Vlad is awesome and makes the whole experience fun, thought provoking and educational. I felt like I was inside a Dali painting. If you love art, the quirky or industrial Don't hesitate just go!!!

Definitely something different! Weirdly fun and quirky. You can get lost in all the objects and trinkets. The owner is very helpful and funny. He will tell you interesting stories about his work if you ask.

A fascinating museum of industrial objects, but together by an eccentric, dedicated curator with artistic flare. Worth every cent of the €7 entrance fee.

I find this museum very creative and unique. It has an impresive number of objects that can be interpreted different ways( between fiction and reality). The host is very nice as well, he explains you the significance of some of the art things there, which is very interesting!!!

This place is awesome, the bloke running it is passionate about what he does and what he's trying to convey. It's a collection of industrial and mechanical bits and bobs that have been put on display like something from a steam punks fever dreams, it really needs to be seen and not read about. quoting Turbo Kid "It's like a...

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighborhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
