The exhibition describes with photographs and in words the mood in Berlin in 1937 and everyday life under the dictatorship of national socialists. Extremely interesting and well-organized exhibition. Highly recommended. Only available until February 25th 2018.

The exhibition, Berlin 1937, was so exciting that no time or effort was left for the rest of the museum. The exhibition tries to tell, what was the life like in Berlin 1937, Nazis in control but before war time (In the shadow of tomorrow)....More

There's a temporary exhibition now called Berlin 1937 that's interesting, a depiction of what ordinary life was like in the Nazi era just before the war. It's interesting and worth a visit. Unfortunately the main museum is very hit-or-miss. They have some beautiful objects like...More

We only visited the exhibition 1937. I expexted more of it. But it was interesting enough. I don't think it's the best museum to visit in Berlin.

This time there was a temporary exhibition - "Berlin 1937 in the shadow of tomorrow". A very good collection of unique, never-before displayed original objects, sound recordings and film demonstrates how the Nazi regime involves in the life of the people.

This museum doesn't appear to draw the crowds that go to the other bigger museums. It's a little away from them but the entrance fee is far less. We didn't realise until we were nearly at the end of our visit that the information boards...More
