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!

If you are a collector of museums, this one is a hit! Taste, fashion, design, technology, history. The display is something in itself. This museum is a thrill

I was immediately surprised by the size of this museum! Beautifully curated across an open plan design, it passes between exhibits exploring, form, function, material, style and oddly historical commemorative pieces from the 3rd Reich like celebratory embroidered Hitler cushions, olympic memorabilia and children's propoganda war games. I really enjoyed the various exhibits and that it didn't follow set curation,... More

great to see my life as history. A lovely gentle museum with lots of interesting stuff grouped in ages or what made off or material. Interesting quirky place on an interesting street

The museum is small but packed with - literally - "stuff". But it is all neatly categorized and the descriptions put an interesting perspective, helping understand modern design. While it probably is not one of Berlin's top attractions, it's definitely worth a visit if you're staying in Kreuzberg.

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.
