As other reviews have said - if you have seen the movie Valkyrie, you might be interested in this. A 10min walk from Potsdamer Platz. Almost more of a library or research archive than a museum, there is enough information about the members of the German Resistance who stood against the Nazi's to spend a whole day here. If you're...

Lots of info about objections to national socialism, stuff we're never taught in school!! a bit far from tube station probably recommend the bus if (when) i go again! Free in plus a lovely selection of literature to buy some in... More

If you know any of the history of operation Valkyrie then this is a must see. I watched a documentary on the subject about 3 weeks before i went and it really brought the experience to life. You enter through the court yard where the Stauffenburg and his co- conspirators where shot, its really eerie! location wise is now on... More

i have had a passion for history and this era is one that fascinates me most. People within the reichstag in positions of true power showing that they weren't all willing. A very powerful memorial in the square and a wonderful muses inside that tells you not just of the 20th of July plotters but of the many factions that... More

One of my must visit sites as part of our stay in Berlin over Christmas. Luckily my son is studying - WWII; rise of National Socialism and Cold War period as part of his senior school studies this year. So the opportunity of obtaining much more detailed information and actually visiting one of the location of one of crucial and... More

Extensive and well-displayed museum chronicling many of the individuals and groups who resisted the Nazis and the 3rd Reich in man different ways. Little is generally known of these brave people, and this museum, which we found to be of great importance and interest, does much to inform. Resistance in Germany was substantial and widespread, much greater than we had... More

This museum is easily reached from Potsdamer Platz. It is free, and provides really detailed information of the different resistances to Hitler and the Nazi regime, from political groups, organisations and individuals. Some of it was quite moving and sobering, and there was some impressive detail on the assassination and coup attempts. What was more interesting in a way, for... More

This is strictly for history lovers who wants to know about exact nature of resistance during National Socialist rule. It will take minimum 3 - 5 hours if you go through each of the presentation details. Museum has properly categorised nature of resistance existed during that period and who are involved. These details you will not find even in wikipedia.... More

This is a very undervalued resource , easy to reach by public transport, and a fitting memorial to the many brave Germans who attempted to resist the Nazi regime. While all exhibited information is in German, I was easily able to book a free, organised tour in English. The museum offers a fascinating insight into the range and background of... More

Not flashy, just very informative, well considered, interesting and quietly impressive. So good to have the exhibition in a relevant and authentic location - the offices of the Valkyrie group. So good to see all the other groups and individuals acknowledged too. Had a reflective quality. (Note to teachers, make sure your students behaviour is respectful to other visitors and... More
