Overview

THE STORY OF BERLIN is the interactive museum of the capital. Spread over 6.000 square meters visitors can explore 800 years of Berlin history. In 23 theme rooms – each of them designed individually and equipped with modern multimedia technology – everyone can experience everyday life of the people of Berlin during different eras. One highlight of the exhibition is a guided tour through an original nuclear bomb shelter from the Cold War below the Kurfurstendamm which still can be used by 3.592 persons in case of an emergency. We offer a special search game called "Pinky & Fox". Carrying a pencil and the treasure map, kids go on a discovery tour through the museum. On request older children get our STORY-Quiz leaflet with some puzzle games and thrilling details about the Berlin history.

Go for the Cold War bunker tour if nothing else. Guided tour shows you around this amazingly spooky yet vast place that could accommodate 3,000+ people.

It's necessary to have a guide to do this tour. Lot's of information and interesting facts will ensure you'll enjoy this attraction. Going underground and seeing the living conditions they prepared in the event of a nuclear war, was very interesting. Recommend

Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city:
upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades
and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone
streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through
little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop

They don't have wheelchairs, but it's accessible for wheelchairs, if that was the question.

Yes, you can drop it off at the front entrance when you buy your tickets. Also, they don't let backpacks in so if you have one, you will need to leave it there.
