“A deep insight view into germany's recent history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

This museum is the best one in germany concerning germany's history after the second world war. Here you get a really good insight view into the live conditions of the people in the 50's and 60's years.The exhibition is full of interesting exponates , including the car from our first german chancellor Konrad Adenauer and is lively illustrated.
So it is worth a visit even as the entrance is free of charge but concern 2-3 hours for visiting

“The History Of Germany FFW - Second World War till Present Times”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

Amazing museum with loads of exponates. Take some time for it - at least 3 hours if you want to get through all the expos. Basic German would be very useful considering that all the expos have notes in German and only 10% of text is translated in English. It is free of charge, no matter the day, and it is the most popular museum in Germany ;)

“Mostly about time of war.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

Well, I very much liked that this is free of charge. What I didn´t like was that they said that my bag was too big and I had to put it in a locker to get in. This is a big museum, I think we spend there 2 hours.

“Plan a few extra hours for this museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

Living in Germany for many years I have visited many places and museums. This museum which is free and is easily accessible is worth a visit. Some basic German is useful as their is very little translation for the foreign tourist. The museum covers German history from the end of the Second World War till today. It covers politics, economy, sports...... Plan to spend more than a couple of hours at this museum as the subjects and the way they are covered will captivate you and before you know it it is closing time..... Have fun.
