A Polish refugee Mr Boros born in 1964 entered into advertising, made a fortune there (don't know how he did it) and in the meantime invested in art and in a bunker where he also lives. Fascinating and daring choice. The future Saatchi of Berlin?

Hard to believe that this huge solid structure was once a bunker - now a contemporary art space. My husband and I didn't think much of the art shown [and art is a very personal experience] but i understand the juxtaposition of such modern pieces...More

A must visit. It truly is a remarkable building that seems totally indestructible. One can only imagine the horrors, but the history is incredible.

Sammlung Boros was a disappointing experience. The art collection was poorly curated, badly hung and many of the “facts” conveyed by the guide were just plain wrong (mistranslations etc.). In addition our guide was not able to form proper German or English sentences (she was...More

No, you can't go in by yourself. Be sure to reserve in advance either for the English or German guided tours. Sorry for the late response!
