There are some different opinions on magic. For me, magic is show, illusion and tricks. Magic is Penn&Teller. For whoever created the museum, magic is apparently a lot of esoterics. You can generate a horoscope, draw Tarot cards and similar - sorry - nonsense. Then...More

Nice little museum, with a little bit of history back to religion. Nice flyer for kids to fill in, but I did expect more magic and it's history. Probably better if you watch the magic show they offer

We thought this would be a nice museum for a rainy day, but it was not really what we expected. First of all the museum is more about superstition instead of magic. So expect info about witches, astrology etc. Also the interactive part (which was...More

The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights
like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum
Island. The central location makes this one of the
city's most expensive places to live. It is here the
oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence
of some significant transformations, as well. The
gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets
between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given
