Museum if you're curious as I am on Industrial design and packaging. It features an amazing and great collection of all kind of every day obejcts and loads of information on good and bad design practices in Germany for the last 125 years. Good thing to add to your visit in Kreuzberg.

This is a cute museum (entrance is 6 euros) in Kreuzberg, a very hipster/turkish part of town off the beaten path of the normal tourist haunts more to the west of the city. The museum itself will take you 45-60 minutes to walk through, the main explanations are in German and English but the individual items are only in German.... More

This place is a gem. Many probably won't love it, but if you enjoy socio-political discourse, design, or just have a curious nature, this is for you. The building is very unassuming and easy to miss if you aren't looking for it, and the climb up the stairwell is exactly like in any GDR apartment or office. Entry is cheap,... More

The Museum of Things came highly recommended and did not disappoint. We really enjoyed peering into the cases showcasing a range of objects, both familiar and unfamiliar. The unconventional arrangement of objects was delightful and sometimes surprising. The museum isn[t big, but offers good value for money and a wonderfully intriguing experience.

This museum is great. The idea is great and the size is good. It is not run very professionally, but worth a visit. For once, it is not all the top designers world, but products we know. Sorted in different ways.

This museum is great! Stuffed full of the everyday things of the 20th Century. For anyone interested in design this is a must; a very small unpretentious museum that's out of the centre and hard to find, but definitely worth the effort.

As museum collectors, we had decided to visit this museum. First of all it is placed in a very strange part of Berlin, which we did not like at all. When we were climbing the stairs we had a strange feeling. For a second we felt like a potential organ donors. The museum itself consists of few cabinets which are... More

Having both a professional and personal interest in design I just thought this museum might be interesting. Especially since Germany was home to one of the best product-designers of all time, but they had no works of either Dieter Rams or any other important designer for that matter. Except a very few nice pieces there were really just knickknacks. A... More

A relatively unknown place, it's interesting mostly for people interesting in material culture and quirky objects. At first glance, it's just an assemblage of day to day objects, but after a while you start discovering completely bizarre collections that put a smile on your face. Staff was very nice and keen to provide explanations!

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.
