This museum gives you an excellent account of the history of Germany, from about 500 to 1989. Very well done, but probably needs two visits to properly process everything. Drink coffee before beginning!

We thoroughly enjoyed slowly going through this Deutsches History Museum. We learned many things about Germany and saw so many wonderful exhibits. We highly recommend a visit to this museum.

A wonderful experience and provides a much broader viewpoint of German history, as it is so easy to focus on the last century..

We spent two hours att the exhibition for the 20th century and made it halfways . Our 12 year old enjoyed it very much. I recommend to be alert and rested to take in all the impressions.The souvenir shop is not very interesting .

There is generally a good explanation in German & English. I didn't feel the need for an audio guide. It depends how much in-house depth you want to go.
