“Must visit museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

It was a well deserved day at the Historisches Museum. Visited it with parents and everyone had a insightful time. They showcase a broad time period and honestly one day is not enough. Though I find it hard to spend more than 3 hours at a museum. A place to come back to definitely. Economial entry too.

“Deutsch history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Very interesting, you can easily spend a day inside the museum and yet not not cover everything. The cafe is also very nice but the door was a bit tricky (we thought it was closed at first).

“Worthwhile”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

The German Histtory has it's cruel moment. They are very well presented, objectiv and seen from both sides.

The present exhibition is nice but the central Theme: from a tolerant , lively, and divers state to an absolute, intolerant regime that killed everyone with a different believe or race, seems too hard to visualize.

We were there for 4 hours and not even half-way. We only left because of the sun outside. I've also met a guided tour with children, an excellent idea: it's not easy to guide your own children through a museum like this.

Free wardrobe and toilets.

“Museum Great; Staff Rubbish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

This is a huge museum with a trail from medieval times to almost present day. It contains some fabulous items (Napoleon's hat for example) and you need to allow a good few hours to do it justice. A great way to see the history of Germany and Berlin.
I've not given an excellent rating simply because the guy manning the cloakroom was so belligerent and downright rude. We would have complained if we could have found someone appropriate but I suppose that shouldn't stop you from visiting this excellent museum.
