“You need a whole day to see this museum properly!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

I found this museum absolutely fascinating. It gives the full history of Germany - warts and all - from the year dot to 1994.
Give yourself plenty of time as I had to rush the end which dealt with the fall of the wall in 1989.

“Brilliant overview of German history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

You could spend all day in this place. It really is an excellent museum that covers the whole of German history with some very well selected and displayed artefacts that are informatively signed.
Great restaurant that serves really hearty German food as well.

“always something new”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

The Deutches Historical Museum has a thorough and interesting standing exhibition on German history (as it says on the tin). It also has at any time two or three temporary exhibitions, usually well worth a visit. in IM Pei's extension. Currently running is Berlin - the end of diversity 1933-38 and it alwsya throws a light on some aspect of German or Berlin culture

“A great History lesson!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013 via mobile

I loved the museum but wish they had more information in English. They do have audio guides in English but I didn't take one as I only had 2 hours to see everything. If you like History, take at least half a day to see it all. Staff are a bit rude.
