House by the Nicholaikirche. Lovely furniture - and they want to buy a contemporaneous bureau, so stick a few Euros in the box. Nice family paintings, some of them top notch. Atmospheric place; friendly staff.

This is a small traditional house museum showing the collection of handsome middle-class life, full of Biedermeier furniture of the 1810-1840 period of Prussian history. The house is one of the few original buildings in Nicholai village, just by the Spree south of Museum Island. The lanes and neighborhood is charming, but this building along with the Nicholai Church are really the only original buildings here. The DDR government created this fake village in the 1970s and it is a pedestrian only zone with plenty of shops, restaurants and bars that cater entirely to tourists. We were there on a gray fall afternoon and enjoyed seeing the Knoblock House. There is good interpretation on the second and third floors. There are docents in the galleries, but there are good carry around plastic cards in a variety of languages that explain the purpose of each room, and give provenance for major pieces of furniture. The Second floor is set up so that there are no velvet ropes. The Third floor which has some recreated bedrooms, has other rooms set up as gallery space to show other objects. The shop was closed unfortunately, and the entrance is free as it is a state museum, we left a generous donation. Worth seeing if you like Biedermeier furniture.

Located in a lovely part of Berlin with coffee shops, this is a beautiful old merchant house with the original furniture and decoration. Well worth a look. It is listed on the three day museum pass, but since there is no entry charge you don't need it.

Good to visit, if you are eager to face German history. It has nothing especial, but has somethings worthy to visit.
Make sure you are planning to visit it when it is free!

This is a free place to get warm while walking about. Not really much to see here. A bit if old furniture.

I guess its of interest cause it survived the devastation of WW2 but if it was anywhere else in Germany then it would be a standard building with some old furniture.
