Plenty of exhibits, mostly German as you would expect. Well laid out and spacious. The only problem was that not many exhibits had an English translation (most other German museums do) I suspect that an audio tour was available but we were not offered on and did not see any signs. However many of the exhibits are self explanatory. Not... More

Museum that takes hours to walk through, perfect for rainy days. :), Exhibits covering fex. aviation, shipping, railways.. So much to see. Entrance fee only 8.00 EUR per adult (or 5.00 EUR with a Berlin WelcomeCard). Visited museum on a friday morning when it was peaceful. Highly recommended!

You cannot make the museum in one day, so it's a good idea to fokus before! What I liked most: They have beautiful old railroad lokomotives and wagons. And a complete rebuild of Konrad Zuse first working computer ever. And much more on industrializiation and transport. It's worth the visit.

You could easily spend a full day in this place, taking in all the many exhibits covering aviation, shipping, railways and technology. Many are hands on and all are very interesting. The museum is also very good value at 8.00 EUR per adult (or 5.00 EUR with a Berlin Welcome card). Highly recommended!

We were amazed by the sheer size of this museum & no of artefacts it has. However what i liked most was the 1st computer ever built by Konrad Zuse in 1940's is on Display. Although the rest of the things were also very interesting. You might need at least 4-6 hrs depending on your interest. Great Exposure especially for... More

A really great experience - the exhibits (on four floors - with stairs and a lift) cover a wide range of technology: Trains, areoplanes, telephones, steam-driven machines, ships and water-bourne craft, windmills, etc. Plenty of space for everything. We spent almost a whole day there and demonstrations of many of the exhibits took place. Keen and enthusiastic (probably volunteers) showed... More

A very large collection of Technology, some of it still working. Was impressed by the railway, and, the airplane collections. Very impressive collect of Steam Engines and also some historical pieces on the invention and evolution of electric trains. Has a "working" steam driven industrial room as well - neet to see how a machine/factory would have worked at turn... More

I don't usually enjoy visiting museums but at 4€ for a student ticket this one looked interesting. I arrived at 10am and there was no queue. There is no set visitor route so you are free to walk around on your own, but do keep a mental note of where you've been so you don't miss anything. I ended up... More

By far it's one of the best museum we've ever visited. It was so beautifully arranged and organized and the displays were so smart and cool. And it had so many things featured in the museum. Loved the trains, the ships, the planes, the big plane, the submarine, the brewery, the PHOTOGRAPHY part. Best things: 1. We saw a piece... More

Staying in Kreuzberg

Neighborhood Profile
Kreuzberg
Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central neighborhood is beginning a new chapter. In the 1950s and 60s, Turkish guest workers settled around Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and 90s, rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a carefree life here. An old hospital even became a hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today you can still find the best kebabs in town and many underground clubs, but a lot has changed as well. The hospital has been transformed into an art center, and increasingly you will find new urban cafés, restaurants and designer shops. Rising housing prices and gentrification threaten the spirit of this area along the Spree River, but the neighborhood’s legacy is upheld by a very engaged community fighting to preserve its rebellious identity.
