Yes it's a Tech museum but it's a bit more than that. This museum used to be an old railroad station with the old style circular turn tracks that assisted box trains coming in and out. This part is in the back still existing. You'll tour through the life sized authentic locomotives, box cars, and models to get outside to... More

This museum is very interesting, with exhibits for many aspects of technology including planes, cars, computers, and boats. The computer exhibit, however, is quite lackluster and only has 1 brand of computers. Everything else is really good. Although it is a little dull sometimes, the museum is very good for people that like engineering and science.

A museum of technology that is well layed-out and accessible. It provides audio guides in multiple languages and uses innovative technology to deliver them. Major collections such as the railway engines are well maintained and presented.

Looking for something beyond art - this museum is it. Has a really broad range of technology and beautiful exhibits. From trains to boats to planes transportation is covered well and the old train station section is really neat to see. The photography and film making exhibits are fun with lots of hands on exhibits. The jewelry section was amazing... More

This is one of Berlins famous museums and is definitely worth the visit for engineering and invention buffs to include the curious. Not boring and is well organized. See the machines that pioneered our world today. Great place to visit during inclement weather and worth the tour. Plan a whole day here or take in a half day which evere... More

This museum is a must go!!! This is a gigantic place (yes, a whole day will not be enough to see all and you will wish to return another day if you have time) and they have all kinds of interesting stuff: from boats to planes, from trains to cameras, history of computers, cameras, movies, etc, etc, etc... We couldn't... More

The Technology museum in Berlin is huge. It is very hard go around the whole museum in one day. It is better to plan to see one part at the time. It is great for kids to visually experience history of train, boat or airplane development.

Neighbourhood Profile
Kreuzberg
Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central neighbourhood is beginning a new chapter. In the 1950s and '60s, Turkish guest workers settled around Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and '90s, rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a carefree life here. An old hospital even became a hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today you can still find the best kebabs in town and many underground clubs, but a lot has changed as well. The hospital has been transformed into an art center, and increasingly you will find new urban cafés, restaurants and designer shops. Rising housing prices and gentrification threaten the spirit of this area along the Spree River, but the neighbourhood’s legacy is upheld by a very engaged community fighting to preserve its rebellious identity.
