    Obviously the main building is under construction so we could only visit the new building. Beautifully laid out. We visited the exhibitions about Wagner and Karl Marx. Very informative and interesting. I did not really enjoy the layout of the Marx exhibition, it felt a bit all over the place.

    Will return once the main building opens again!

    I enjoyed going through historic information as well as the human touch of espionage - double agents, etc.
    The gadgets shown are of a great variety and number - for comparison - the Stasi museum only has a couple of articles displayed.

    Another free historical museum that brings the time period alive. Only the Germans could make a passport control station engaging. An excellent audio guide explains the whole process, but it is also all in English. I am getting tired of saying "a must-see"; just consider Berlin a "must-see".

    The audio guides are excellent and help lead you through the exhibit which is in an actual WW2 bunker. It is photos and text so do not expect interactives or artifacts but the material is exhaustive and covers all aspects of the rise and fall of Hitler.

    Very interesting to find out more about those Germans who resisted Hitler's attempts to wipe out certain sectors of society. It is a bit text orientated but most in English or German. It's quite difficult to remember any of the names after a while as so many people are mentioned on one floor alone. Well worth a visit and free.

    The contrast between this incredibly beautiful setting on a lake and the antiseptic planning of mass murder that took place during a 90-minute meeting inside is overwhelming. It should not be missed.

    We were disappointed we did not get to see Pergamonmuseum due to a booking system linked with the covid pandemic. However, we were able to visit Das Panorama, and were pleasantly surprised. We would fully recommend this visit, especially if you have an interest in the Bible, as Pergamum was mentioned in Revelation, in relation to the 7 Christian congregations in the first century and the prevalent idolatry that took place in this interesting city, "the throne of Satan".

    You can find here a lot of information about East Germany lifestyle including explanations of everyday situations. If you are interested about history of cold-war and west/east block you must see this.

    Probably one of the most intimate and touching monument I have seen so far in my life. The statue of the mother and her dead son in this spacious room creates an amazing atmosphere. It is worth to see this palce in a rainy day as the whole in the roof gives a completely different dimension.

    The exhibition was fairly priced (10€ online) and we arrived on time to avoid queues. It was an interesting overview of the history of Berlin but somehow chaotic in time divisions. You kind of jump from one period to the next. Apart from that, the figures are nicely done with lot if details and animations.

    We found this museum very interesting.It is really for the aficionados not someone with a casual interest in WWII memorabilia. We left with a much better appreciation of the aftermath of the war. It was fairly easy to reach from public transportation. We took the S-Bahn and then had a 20 min walk through a lovey green leafy neighborhood.

    Nikolaikirche or St Nicholas church is a lovely old church situated at Nikolaikirchplatz in the Old Town. It was lovely round here. You can go in the church but as it is a museum now you have to pay to look around inside.

    To be honest, we popped in looking for a toilet before walking along the Eastside Gallery; however we thankfully decided to do the museum...so glad we did!

    As a teenager in yorkshire in the 80's i was 'aware' of the Berlin Wall, i remember news reports people being shot trying to get across...but what it was/represented etc passed me by.
    I thanks to the museum, now understand so much more and there were some emotional moments. Highly recommend.

    At the time of my visit on a Friday afternoon, there were very few visitors to the museum, but a lot of staff. So I felt slightly strange and very much watched by the staff present all over the place as a nearly lone visitor. Also, the COVID-19 protection measures were a bit confusing (where are you supposed to walk, in which direction etc.) And due to changes to the exhibition, only part of it was accessible. Nevertheless, the museum offers a good insight into the history of Berlin!
