Worth the money and you get discount if you have a berlin welcome card, a bit confusing in terms of layout but the exhibitions are stunning and the visit to the atomic bunker was fabulous!

A very interesting museum depicting the fascinating history of Berlin combined with an excellent guided tour of one of Berlin's underground nuclear bunkers that are kept in readiness for a nuclear emergency.

Great little place. Sort of hidden (ish) but well worth a look.not far from main Zoo area. Good documentation of Berlins origins right through the ages. Currently €12 (July 2016) admission. Well set out - info in German and English. Cold War bunker tour situated underneath is well worth a look too which is included in the admission price.

Very informative and immersive experience outlining the 800 year history of Berlin but mainly focussed on the 20th Century. The original artefacts and videos in German and English held your attention and brought to light the day to day life of the people living, working and visiting the city. Highly recommended.

I spent two hours here with my 16 year old son and we both enjoyed it. We came at 10 on a Sunday morning and it was not busy. There is also a bunker tour in English or German after the museum.I have a good understanding of the history of Berlin now. Some of the sections on the war and... More

11 euro per adult and a little bit less for concessions gets you entrance to the underground cold war bunker and the museum, both of which are worth the entrance fee alone. The guide was fantastic (name I've forgotten, but a young German girl with long brown hair who spoke absolutely perfect English without a single error). Museum is interesting... More

This museum is located inside a mall but quite easy to find as there are sign posts in the road to guide you. It features the history of Berlin and how life changed across the ages under different reigns. The highlight of the tour was the Cold War bunker which gladly has never been used but is still furnished as... More

Museum was interesting, nice execution. Full of noisy rude schoolgroups. I was feeling a bit bored in the end but the bunker tour saved my day! Good guide, good stories, very distressing atmosphere when you hear the awful facts, great experience. There was still some areas we didn't see and you are not allowed to go there without a guide....

Came with my boyfriend on a beautiful sunny Sunday only to find out it wasn't worth it. Had two problems with the place: first of all, they inform you there is a guided tour and a self-guided tour. What they won't tell you at any time is that the self-guided tour doesn't lead you to the bunker (which is the... More

Enormous exhibition packed with photographs and mementoes from the fascinating and often turbulent history of Berlin. It does what it says on the tin and tells the whole story of Berlin, pulling no punches and making no excuses as it examines the social and political precursors to both world wars. We could have spent all day here. At set times... More

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
Charlottenburg
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighborhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theaters close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
