Not worth the visit. The display is based on texts on walls, which may have been the standard for a museum 50 years ago, but lack the required edge for transferring the experience to a modern traveller. No vidows, clips, live testimonies...Nothing to engage the viewer.

This was a really good small museum and very interesting covering the resistance to the Nazis. We did not have a lot of time to spend so unfortunately only visited the permanent exhibition. It was well worth the walk from Potsdamer Platz. Another really good site in Berlin that is free to visit.

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...

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

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

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
Charlottenburg
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighborhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theaters close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
