I'm so glad I managed to visit this Museum on this trip to Berlin and I would urge anybody visiting here to do the same. As mentioned by a previous reviewer, the photograph of the workers (I've attached my photo of it) leaves you feeling as if you've been punched by the end of the history of what happened to... More

The small, free museum is located in a small alley, worth to find and visit. The story is interesting and inspiring, yet not known to most people. Highly recommended!

Thank you TA folks for suggesting this museum. Their stories are uplifting, sad and tragic. Allow an hour or more. It is worth the time and there is art in the courtyard.

We learned about this place on the free Alternative Berlin tour and stopped by later to investigate further. Otto Weidt's actions in saving the lives of many of the blind Jews who worked for him are tremendous and moving. The story of the place is fascinating and explained via documents, postcards, testimonies, former work equipment and, of course, the site... More

This small museum told the story of an unsung hero. It was very heartening and educational. Only a short time is needed to visit this and it is very close to other attractions. Take the time to roam around the other courtyards to see some interesting art.

I hadn't heard of Otto Weidt before being brought here on an Alternative tour. It is tucked away in a courtyard chock-a-block full of amazing street art. It would be a shame if too many people got caught up with just that and bypassed this museum though. It is well worth a visit though. It is small, free and doesn't... More

I came across this little gem as it was close to where I am staying. What a wonderful museum. It's free but would have paid money to see it. Highly recommended great and sad stories of survival and death!

we visited the museum blindwerkstatt on a walking tour with Garblinger Tours. Our group had not heard of Otto Weidt prior to this stop, and we were very happy to have visited this exhibit. Seeing the room where Otto Weidt hid a family of 4 left us speechless
