This was an interesting museum. Wish I knew my world history better since it would have made more sense. There is construction going on out front so it was difficult to find the entrance. And the bunker was closed, which was a disappointment. But our...More

This could have been so much better. The information is completely unorganised. It neither runs to a timeline nor themes. Rather it feels like a room has been built because they have a certain exhibit. There were several screens not working. The initial medieval room...More

The story of Berlin in it self is exiting, and this exhibition tells it in a fascinating way. Light, sound and text takes you through 800 years of history, with an emphasis om the latest 100. Unfortunately the atom-bunker was closed due to maintenance, but...More

This museum is nothing more or less than superficial overview of Berlin’s history. Visit the museum if you have time (and ten Euros) to spare. I found the juxtaposing of the living rooms in East and West Berlin insightful.The lady at reception assured me that...More

This museum is all over the place. Exhibits don't follow a chronological sequence. Hard to know when video will be shown in English. Terrible!

This is billed as " interactive", but since when is squinting at panels of text interactive? What you see in the photo is about all there is, long corridors with a jumble of material behind glass.You spend most of your time walking in the dark...More

This museum is well designed and gives a great i sight into the development of Berlin over the past 800 years, focussing Peter of course on the rise and fall of the Berlin Wall. Really enjoyable and we all learned a lot about our surroundings.

This museum is a chaotic warren of cluttered pseudo-artefacts and mumbo jumbo of historical factoids. It lacks order and coherence, which is a shame because Berlin has such a rich and vital history, starting in the Bismarck era, stretching across Nazi Germany and then during...More

Upon entering you are greeted by a movie with no context whatsoever. From there you start moving through the museum but there is no discernable order. Translucent text displays nearly impossible to read and some in incredibly tiny text. I would never expect to use...More

A great museum, lots to see, do and learn! Could have spent much longer there than we did. Definitely worth a visit

Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through
the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which
lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood.
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.
