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.

I visited this museum yesterday and spent three hours lost in a world of objects, from the most mundane to the most original, from kitch tourist souvenirs to sex toys to the Nazi swastika to cosmetics and food products, to toasters and chairs. No sector of our daily lives or our recent past is overlooked in this overwhelming collection of... More

Museum der Dinge ('museum of things') is a collection of evryday items going back 100 years, covering all low points of design and high points. You should reserve at least two hourse for a tour through this gem of design...

This was like a flee market, but instead of selling antiques, they were behind glass. Neighborhood was pretty run down but the Turkish restaurants looked awesome.
