Museum Berlin-Karlshorst: what do users think?


Micodio Micodio: Very nice - to some extend unknown - museum. Not many people from Berlin don't even know about this important place, people told me. We also had a guided tour that I would recommend. A lot of very well documented information.

MikeHunter -: Lots of history to read, great exhibition of many historical items, including soviet ww2 era tanks and artillery..Entrance is free, so what is there not to like about this museum. Highly recommended for all history lovers.

Jonny Whitlam: Free museum about WWII in the East. Fantastic exhibition. Gives a lot of context outside of the war, physical exhibits and photos are very well displayed. Totally recommended.Visited on Weekday Wait time No wait Reservation recommended No …More

Christian McCulloch: Nice free museum showcasing the room where the Germans signed the unconditional surrender in front of the Soviets, British, Americans and French after the general consent to an armistice in Reims. Although it is a little outside the centre of Berlin, it is only about 20 minutes on the S3 then a 15 minute walk up to the museum so definitely worth visiting considering it's free! Was good to see things showing a Soviet perspective rather than the Allies which you tend to see in most museums.

Olga Kovalyova: Historical place where was written the capitulation documents in 8th of may 1945. There are a lot of facts, pictures, installations it speaks about the second world war. Recommended for visiting.

S Muller: If you want to learn about WW II they have a great exhibit. But, more importantly, this place is a piece of history where Germany signed the declaration of surrender. Free entry!Visited on Weekday Wait time No wait Reservation recommended No …More

Nathan Johnson: Great place to visit, Free entry. A completely different aspect of the war, very informative.Visited on Weekday Wait time No wait Reservation recommended No …More

Aaron Johnston: Great museum and worth the effort to go, despite the location being off the beaten track. Excellent history to see and some wonderful artefacts. Loved our time there on a Sunday evening. I would recommend it to any student of history.Visited on Weekend Wait time No wait …More

Ross Woodward: Fantastic museum, deceivingly large with great detailed exhibitions. Could easily spend a few hours here and free entry is a bonus.

Egor Ivanov: The museum is dedicated to the history of WW2, but among well-known facts you definitely can also find something new for you. Each exhibit has a description in Russian, German and English, the entrance is free

Tamta: Great museum, entrance is for free. We managed to go inside of the plane and the lovely lady there told us stories about the plane. Museum is locates in ex-US cinema building - outpost

Prayaag Prasad: A must visit museum, got to know a lot about the history related to the wars and how life was in those circumstances. This is a free museum but I would definitely pay even if there was a entry ticket. You could just walk into the museum free of cost and go through. There is also a place for getting souvenirs (nothing too fancy but at least some basic stuff)

Maksim Tonyushkin: Great museum —especially it being free! Although I had bits and pieces of the history down, the museum manages to really formulate the history of the last 80 years of the city into one cohesive story that’s straightforward to understand and share. I especially like that there are so many original items! The outpost building and plane are amazing!

Hiday Juárez: It's a great place to know the things that got left from the war time, how the planning was, what happened during and after the allieds arrived. There's can good from that time, airplane parts, official uniforms, news paper articles, vehicles and even a wedding dress Made out of courtings from an apartament in that time. And it's free! Totally not crowded, There's a cafe and plenty to see. It was a really instructional experience, first time in this kind of museums and it was so easy to walk through. Totally worth it! 👍

Güngör Doğan ALTUN: There are old cars, plane and train from world war 2. Also uniform of the soldiers and some details related war. Museum is free. It is a bit outside of Berlin. If you have your own car better to visit.

N Heymann: Part of the history of Berlin and also the former US base and cinema now used as a museum. Talk about moving the museum to Tempelhof Airport. Hope some part of this history / museum remains on this site.Visited on Weekday Wait time No wait Reservation recommended No …More

B Smith: A place to visit for WWII history buffs. This is a rather small museum. Outside there is an actual British transport plane from the Berlin airlift, an East German guard tower that was moved to the museum plus the last actuall Checkpoint Charlie station.Visited on Weekday Wait time No wait Reservation recommended No …More

Meshy Tsanti: Open everyday except Mondays, free entrance.Beautiful museum with German, English and French explanation on everything.

Gustaf Klinga: Good museum in a pretty cool historic environment

Museum Neukölln: what do users think?


Francis Jones: This small museum is really worth visiting. The highlight is their collection of objects that each have a little story attached. These individual stories are very well written and often very insightful. Both in English and German. The friendly staff is a bonus.

Stratis Efthymiou: Great place, very calm and with a nice historical vibe!

Ishai Rosenbaum: Small but very interesting. Free entrance.

Isabelle T.: Very cute little museum

Simon Schubert: Nice garden, buildings and informative.

Mahmoud Karam: History in a building

Gioele Lai: Free museum on the history of the neighborhood. Quick to visit but still interesting and particular. Well organized with mobile screens to study the objects in the shop windows, which offer descriptions and information in German, simplified German and English.
Response: We are very pleased to reach an international audience with our permanent exhibition. Thank you very much for your kind feedback and all the best to you.

Joachim Mehl: A prospective gravel museum in a historic property. I particularly liked the personal stories shown. To understand this part, it is recommended to use the Audi Guide. The entire exhibition is worth seeing.
Response: Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. The audio guide for the exhibition "The Museum of Life. Private Remembrance Culture in Neukölln" is indeed an important part of the visitor experience and underscores the stories in an atmospheric way. Our trained museum staff therefore always draws our guests' attention to the added value of using the audio guide.

Piotr Graliński: Interesting little museum about the ordinary affairs of ordinary people. Accurate and friendly descriptions. Free. And the neighborhood is worth a walk.

Steffen krackforduck: A fine little museum about the history of Neukölln. Objects are presented that are interesting for this Berlin location. The multimedia description of the exhibits is particularly outstanding. The special exhibition of special streets and squares was also very well designed in the form of large puzzle cubes, which invited you to help and could also be interesting for children. Despite free admission, a very successful exhibition.

Museum Blindenwerkstatt Otto Weidt: what do users think?


Lucian Alexe: A small but very interesting museum in Berlin. Hidden in one of the best passageways in the area, the museum offers a quick view of one episode of bravery in the Nazi time. Free to visit.

Dan C.: The musuem is very little, and entrance is free, but was very emotiinal beeing there, I think people should go even as a form of respect

Sathya Nambirajan: This museum provides good info about Otto Weidt and the Jews he saved. There are quite a few kinds of installations too - video based and actual things from that factory. The connect with the story is a bit missing though - a story so moving can be shared in a moving way

Hannah Rose: Free entry and free audio guides in a bunch of languages, braille on all displays. Really touching museum, a beautiful and closer look into the lives of individual Jews affected by wwii as well as the bravery of survivors, victims and allies

Do Co: Came across this place by accident when looking at the Anne Frank mural. Although it is small there is no shortage of things to look at and the staff are very friendly. Allow between 45 minutes and an hour to see it properly. Would absolutely recommend it to anyone!

Brian Cooper: Never new the good that came out of the holocaust like visiting a museum that was itself an integral part of saving lives but also wrapped in turmoil, really recommend doing a walk tour that takes you here.

Aaron Miller: Museum about brush manufacturer, Otto Weidt who employed deaf and blind Jews during the Holocaust. He also helped them from persecution. The museum tells the stories about different employees and there families. This is free and down an alley with a lot of street art.

Eliza Islam: Small but interesting museum! I’m so happy I went here and from time to time, I think about the great work that Otto did! I get emotional when thinking about this place! Worth visiting and it’s free!

Phoebe Gaydon: One of the best museums I’ve been to. We were around it in one hour and it was such an important story to hear.

Sirius Hertz: Simple museum that outlines the efforts of a local blind brush maker to protect his blind Jewish employees from the Holocaust, with mixed results. Exhibits in German and English. Takes maybe 15-20 minutes to walk through. Well worth the visit.

Sara Tricoli: Very interesting museum ideal for electricity buffs. You have to book a tour unless you get like we did, one of the rare open mornings.

Hendri Meintjies: Great to visit and get a perspective of where our power comes from and the immense scale of innovation that brought us to the modern world.

Boaz Peiper: A bit ancient but interesting.The staff was super nice and knowledgeable.

Omer Reznik: This museum has a ton of information and many small experiments you can operate for yourself. It's important to say that the information inside is only on German, and the visit is by appointment only, there's a guided tour once a month. Luckily, the guided tour was led by Ulrich and his colleague which gave the tour in English, even though it was planned to be in German, they were very welcoming and were happy to answer any question 😀

Ibrahim Simsek: It is a nice museum to visit. They work with donations. But you should let them know earlier about an English guide need, in case that you don't know any German.

Yury Kozyrev: I was absolutely impressed by the exposition and people there! You can book German or English tour there, it could take around 2-3 hours for the entire exhibition. It's impressive how much engineering and responsibility needed to give us light (and power internet :) )

Sjoerd Migo: Very interesting museum! The tour guides are very friendly and enthousiastic, clearly loving their work!

Sagar Patel: A small museum housing various devices used in electrical industry. Staff is very good and they are very enthusiastic about their work.

Alberto López: If electric, engineering and historical apparatus are your thing, this os your place

Jan Verveckken: Make a reservation!!!! Only open with reservation!!! Fantastic museum, unique industrial pieces, with professional explanations

Alex0ss: Very great well preserved XIXth century house. Two floors can be visited with a lot of information about the city and the historical context, you're totally free to wander in the house the way you want. The last part dedicated to Schinkel and the Humboldt brothers has a very complete set of info. This place needs to be more famous and more visited, admission and audioguides are free, the team is super nice ; it deserves your donation to help renovate!
Response: Dear Alexoss, Thank you very much for this kind review! We couldn't imagine a nicer recommendation for our small museum in the heart of the much-visited Nikolaiviertel. With best regards from the Stadtmuseum Berlin

Saherad: Very beautiful, amazingly well preserved. You can play on the piano but use the more stable chair. They are raising funds to restore more furniture, please donate!
Response: Thank you! :)

G Geo: Beautiful house, located in old Nikolai Quarter. This is a former residence of the Knoblauch family. I enjoyed to visit this museum several months ago. It was interesting to see 200 years old furnitures and items. There was a homely atmosphere. Entry to this museum is free. Staff is very friendly. Recommend to visit this place.
Response: Thank you very much for the rating and recommendation!

Amandine Kirion: Great surprise in Nikolaiviertel. I really enjoyed this museum, very well maintained and with friendly staff. It is always interesting to see the lifestyle of people before us. I recommend it.

Jef Hendrikx: Beautiful house in the centre of Berlin. It's a 18th century house (the Biedermeier period) belonging to the Knoblauch family. It's a family house and as you enter you feel at home, you feel welcome. I should recommend this museum. Johann Knoblauch was a wire-drawer, middle-class.

Miriam F: I loved this museum. It brings to life how a family lived, worked and what were the daily struggles. Fantastic pieces of home décor from 1835-40.Staff in this museum is very kind, attentive and friendly.

SACHIN yadav: Go to this museum to check out and feel how bourgeoisie lifestyle was. It's one of the few houses which are still intact in their originality.

Marketa Jakesova: Totally awesome, free entrance (don't be afraid to support it, though), friendly staff. English friendly information.

Yulia Yang: excellent exhibition with audio guided tour for free ! friendly staff, clean and well kept.
Response: Thanks a lot for this thoroughly positive feedback! We are happy that you liked it. Best regards from the Stadtmuseum Berlin

Mihai Calota: Fascinating trip to 1800s lifestyle, right in the heart of Berlin. For the best experience don't forget the free audio guide!

Andrew Kinnear: Unplanned visit - well worth it. We went here as it was right next to Berlin on Bicycles and we had just finished a tour. Noticed the museum and after the rich history lesson we recieved on the bicycle tour thought, 'why not'. It was well worth it. Very interesting all about life in East Germany. It was quite interactive and so filled with intersting recent history. Well curated and maintained. Also free - which was great. Well done!
Response: Dear Andrew, thank you for your spontaneous visit and the detailed review! We are glad to hear that you liked our exhibition. Kind regards, visitor services.

Alan McEneaney: Fascinating insight into the daily lives of citizens living under the Communist regime of East Germany. Grocery shopping, life in a Commie block high rise, how they went on vacation…these are the mundane pieces of history we don’t often see in the books. Plenty of exhibits with descriptions in German and English. I arrived an hour before close and the staff were professional and helpful. Free entry so stop by if you get the chance.

Dawn Sky: Great free museum with interpretation on DDR. Audio guide was good, most displays have English translation. Free lockers to store you bags.Visited on Weekday Wait time No wait Reservation recommended No …More

Guten N.: Awesome experience for this free exhibition: "Zwischenzeit 1990". I'm a photographer and it gave me the chills to see Berlin in 1990. The museum is wonderful, kind staff as well ❤️

Super Baardman: Amazing museum about life in the DDR for the average person. Information is in both English and German. Lots of "artifacts" from the time. I would say it's a must see in Berlin. Can't believe it is free.Visited on Weekday Wait time No wait Reservation recommended No …More

Piero D'Onofrio: Positive aspects: very nice and kind staff, competent guides, interesting objects and exhibits, free entry. Negative aspects: old-concept set-up, little or no interactivity, it presents the DDR period as something distant and definitively past without giving the possibility to reflect on how much its legacy is still present in current German society.

Quentin Leclerc: Interesting free museum on life in the DDR. They advertise their exhibition as contrasting propaganda versus reality, but I did not find that particularly clear in the examples they showed, so I was a bit disappointed. They have a free website which provides an audioguide to enrich the tour in a variety of languages, so that's a plus!

Peter Ytterström: Really cool museum of the DDR era focused on a factory and the families connected to it. Free entry so absolutely worth a visit. The surrounding area is also nice to see. The museum shows old propaganda clips. With English subtitles as well. They offer tours in English which I would have liked to have taken. Listened in on some who took it and it sounded great so take that if you have the chance.

Andreas Ritter: Great non-ideological display of everyday DDR life. Family, job, education, shopping, economic planing, government. Lots of exhibits, great for teens to explore.

Mahmoud Mandou: I was lucky to visit this nice Museum with my language school “BSI”, the visit was free of charge, and we received a tour done by a nice man from the museum, he spoke German with us but they also offer other languages , and there were closets to keep your stuff in. I liked the way the presented info inside the museum as you can see, read , and also hear about historical stories, videos and people, It’s definitely worth the visit, and in corona times they asked us for 2G and FFP2 masks

Museum for Communication Berlin: what do users think?


Zaidoun Haddad: We try to make it a tradition to visit this museum once a year with our kids, usually after we have visited our favourite museums. While it is a decent experience, it does feel a bit limited. There are a good number of interactive elements for the kids, although some of them weren't functioning during our visit. Despite this, we were able to enjoy an interesting exhibition on Axel Schiffer, one of my daughter's favourite authors. We spent some time reading books and drawing together. Overall, it was an enjoyable outing for our family.

Yaneris: Very interesting museum. The exhibition is easy to follow in a logical order of developments. It also have many interactive parts that could be fun for kids and adults alike. Definitely recommend it.

Kajal Kapoor: I went on Museum Sonntag (the first Sunday of the month where most museums are free) and this museum is very cute. If you’re older and alone it’s not very necessary, however if you have kids it’s definitely great to visit! There’s a lot of hands on activities to help them learn about the history of communication.

Kerim özbek: A large and interactive museum. You can work as a reporter with a green screen and prompter duo, or you can put the message you wrote in a tube and send it to your friend with a pressurized system. An ideal museum to spend a good time.Visited on Public holiday Wait time 10–30 min Reservation recommended Yes …More

Y. C.: Most of the instructions in the museum are in German—— but it doesn’t really matter! This museum has a lot of interesting treasure, the way they display and those items they collect are just AMAZING. I really love their history exhibition about the post office. They also have an interesting vending machine, put 0.1 euro coin then you get a postcard. I stayed for 1.5 hour here, but it’s not enough… better plan for a 3 hours visit for this museum! The building is beautiful as well, very suitable for photo shooting 😇 Btw the ticket/store counter staff uncle is so friendly and helpful! I really appreciate his help and warm smile :) the museum shop has a lot of postcards, but a bit pity they don’t have much stamps (I was expecting a huge amount of stamps to buy because this museum is kind of like Postal museum as well haha) so if you want to purchase stamps, they still have, but if you’re a collector, just enjoy the exhibition but you will need to get your stamps in other places.

Sergey Rozov: Interesting exposition, which shows the whole historical path of communication from ancient times until today. Most explanations are provided both in German and in English (please do that for all information!) Also, the current temporary expositions about Gruffalo (great for children) and different ways of communication (with an interactive test!) can be recommended. The only things missing are the most current technologies and maybe at least a small outlook into the future.

Pat: An unexpected pleasure. Do yourself a favour, when you are in Berlin make sure to visit. The staff was extremely friendly and enthusiastic. This place is for all ages and you will be pleasantly surprised.Visited on Weekday Wait time No wait Reservation recommended No …More

family in Berlin: I'm not really a fan of the museum.. yes, I think it probably needs to be here and it makes use of a beautiful old building, however there is nothing in the museum that you can't see in other places like the German Museum of Technology. Wouldn't dedicate a whole day or even morning to the museum. There isn't really that much to see. The robots at the entrance of the museum are fun and the place is spacious and clean. Had a nice, but expensive, coffee at the cafe but I wasn't really "feeling" it.

People Museum - The first museum of BODY WORLDS: what do users think?


Jakob Bach Jensen: Amazing museum that teaches its guests about the human body. Their exhibit was very beautiful and informative and at a reasonable prize. Would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in the human body.

Dzmitry Yudo: The ticket is 17 eur, but imo it’s worth it. Impressive work with real bodies requiring months to get them to the museum. Internal organs on display show the consequences on imbalanced diets and unhealthy lifestyle.

Zinaida Dz: High recommend it. Amazing place. One of the most unusual museum. Very informative & interesting for all generations 👏.

rosie wood: Had some really cool exhibits to look at and didn’t take too long to look around either which I prefer as I wanted to do other things nearby too. Everyone I went with thought it was good and the best museum we had done in Berlin so far.Visited on Weekday Wait time No wait Reservation recommended No …More

J W: Was here on an outing with my work. Decent museum. Relatively small but very densely filled with information. Can be finished fast if you race through but you can easily spend here 3 hours if you take your time. 17€ entry not cheap but acceptable. It’s not a tourist trap. Lots of interesting information about the human body. It’s a bit of a creepy topic but easier to stomach than I would have expected.

Ruxandra Belbe: The dissections are very well done. It's interactive and has a lot of fun activities

Mark F: Amazing view of the body from another perspective. Body art at it's finest. The museum is a bit small; and the price is a bit high. You are NOT allowed to bring bags into the exhibition itself. And you are required to store your belongings in a safe, which cost 2 euros. I would recommend the exhibition to others. But I dont think I would come back...

Juan Morales: This museum is amazing. I would highly recommend a visit when you're in Berlin. The bodies are actual human beings, but the displays are done in a very tasteful manner which is just fascinating to see.

Tatiana P.: It's small, for 15 euro I think it should be bigger, it should have more languages on audioguides, more systems. And it works for ordinary people but for doctors, biologists, medical students it's a little irrealistic

Roman Gural: Museum is small but quite interesting. Exhibition is not scary, went there with kids and didn’t had any issues.The only thing I didn’t understand and didn’t like were paid and non-refundable lockers. That’s just greedy.

Torben Weber: The German Historical Museum known by the acronym DHM, is a museum in Berlin, Germany devoted to German history. It describes itself as a place of "enlightenment and understanding of the shared history of Germans and Europeans". It is often viewed as one of the most important museums in Berlin and is one of the most frequented.

Leopoldo Reizlandt: The museum is housed in two architecturally remarkable buildings: Berlin's most important preserved baroque building, the Zeughaus, and a highlight of modern architecture, the Pei-Bau.

James Maximiliano: The museum is housed in two architecturally remarkable buildings: Berlin's most important preserved baroque building, the Zeughaus, and a highlight of modern architecture, the Pei-Bau.

leonard stone: Great exhibition on commissioned art in Third Reich and after exploring continuance of purpose. Awesome building.Original museum building is undergoing renovation.

Karla Büchner: A beautifully arranged museum! Learning German history with objects in the museum can be great, especially for people who are younger than me. When buying your ticket, I recommend that you cut more for 8 euros and buy it from the voice guide device.

Millicent Taylor: Have been here twice now at different times of the year with a different rotation of exhibitions. Both times have been really interesting. The Marx exhibition that is on currently is full of facts and is an unbiased representation that is sure to teach you something new, be it good or bad about Marx. The Merkel exhibition was a bit strange though. The staff are helpful, friendly and polite and it is easy to find, just off museum island. The building itself is an interesting piece of modern architecture.

Hey Tony: Although I went when the rest of the museum was temporarily closed, they did have an exhibition about citizenships in Germany, France, and Poland. Incredibly interesting with the audio your guide. Staff were very friendly, nice and quiet place to walk around, and it was curated very well. Audio guide was separate yet worth getting. I would definitely go again in the future.

Antonia Otten: The German History Museum is a museum that everyone interested in history should be seen. The museum has been exhibited with approximately 8000 works from the early ages to the present day. If you want to visit the entire museum, you will need 2-3 hours. In the History Museum…

Morten Skrubbeltrang: Very interesting place of Jewish history, naturally with a big emphasis on the holocaust. Terrifying facts about how humanity is capable of straying from the path of compassion and dignity with unbearable consequences. The entrance was free which makes very good sense considering the importance of remembering the atrocities of the past in an increasingly ignorant future.

Varun Malhotra: Brilliant work, unbelievable how the art is so captivating and makes you feel what those poor souls must have felt during the holocaust. A highly recommended activity while visiting Berlin.

Gabby Go: Huge museum - spent 2.5+ hours at a leisurely pace. You'll learn about Jewish history and culture from its origins up to the modern era - and of course, it dedicates a huge portion of the museum to the Holocaust. There are immersive and multimedia exhibits so it's not all just photos/ items.

Julius Kussoy: I didn't know what I would expect in a Jewish museum other than events that has happened in WW2. It was surprisingly a very depressing and educating experience. Not only did I know about the Holocaust, but you learn the whole Jewish history, famous figures that you would never expect that were Jewish and my favorite part was the art. I would recommend my friends to come to the museum.

Jibran Kahn: This should be top of your list when you’re in Berlin. Keep at least couple of hours to visit the place. Core exhibition is free and that should be enough. One of the best museums on Jewish history like EVER!Visited on Weekend Wait time No wait Reservation recommended No …More

Gabe Jr Lons: One of the best museum experiences I've had. Does a great job of telling the story of the Jewish people from start to current. Libskind does an amazing job with the built environment too. Full credit to the museum curators, this is an amazing space and a must visit. Beware, we spent 4 hours in there and still could have spent more time!

Kirby: Beautiful museum with plenty of interactive elements and areas for all ages. It is VERY large so I would plan to have multiple hours here if you want to view everything, but it is laid out in a way that you can view at your own paceVisited on Weekday Wait time No wait Reservation recommended No …More

Pradhyumna Bhat: Those who like arts, they will find it stupendous. I am not that great fan of arts. Still liked the concept though!

Anti-Kriegs-Museum: what do users think?


Georgios Kantianis: It's a unique experience! I was very surprised by the history of this private museum and the powerfulness of its message. Mr Ernst Friedrich was an amazing human being and his family & continuators have my deepest respect. Also, the staff (mostly volunteers as I understood) is very friendly with visitors. Greetings from Greece! The sculpture in front of the museum:

Savannah Shepherd: When in Berlin, make the time to stop here. Could have spent hours here, but got a great amount of info within the 1.5 hours I was here. Loved talking to our host, as he spoke english, knew a LOT of history, and had an answer for every question. Some cool artifacts and authentic pieces. Small, and private, so there is no government support. The employees are volunteers. Make sure to bring some cash to donate!

Mary Kidane: Such a lovely experience! This museum, however small, held beautiful history and I was happy to learn more. A must visit!Visited on Weekday Wait time No wait Reservation recommended No …More

Martina Cappelli: I went to see the museum yesterday and I am really thankful I did! The museum is small but full of objects from all over the world. We went to the basement and it really gets you chills down your spine, it's really impressive! The entry is free but you can leave a offer. All the descriptions of the items are both in German and in English so everyone can get something! The museum is small but really worth a visit if you're in Berlin!

Jens Görner: Nice little museum. Go there, take your time ×/- 1 hour. Be sure that your visit will support a private museum. This place doesn't get any support by the government. It's really interesting lots of things to discover. If you're interested in history of war in general, put it on your trip list. Worth seeing it.

Philip Ryan: Visited this small, suburban, museum on a weeknight about 5pm. Spent about 90 minutes there reading and viewing information relating to the founding of the museum (in 1925), and the various anti-war, and then anti-Nazi, groups in Germany. Also information on war bombing and bomb shelters with a 1940s shelter in the basement. The main exhibition room of the museum has translations into English for all the panels, which threw lots of light on the very real anti-war and anti-Nazi movement in Germany through the 1930s and 40s. Well worth a visit.

ΓΕΩΡΓΙΑ ΛΑΜΠΡΟΠΟΥΛΟΥ: It is a unique experience.We felt that horrible energy of war and terror. i have to congratulate these people who run this museum for free and who are very hospitable and positive.I highly recommend it!!!!

Omer Reznik: A small museum that is being run mostly by a group of history teachers, a very interesting place to visit, I had a very long and informative talk with grandson of the museum founder, if you're LUCKY hell be there when you visit

Deniz Aktürk: One of the best places to touch the history this closely in Berlin. Meaningful and enlightening, definitely must be visited and the owner is so kind, so friendly

C. Solís: I wish there were more museums like this one; it's bittersweet but it's definitely worth the visit. I loved it.

Berlin Story Bunker: what do users think?


Rafael Kappler: I consider it a haven to be visited. The images of brutality in the chronological photography exhibition inside make you feel once again how brutal and painful the events were. It is forbidden to take pictures inside, you feel the cruelty and murderousness of the war as you wander through the concrete walls of the bunker. It was a beautifully designed shelter. You can quickly review the history of Germany.

Karen: Why is this not on the guidebooks? What an awesome place to visit. Allow lots of time, it needs it. This is one of the most educational museums I have been to. It explains everything from the rise to the fall of Hitler. It is graphic in some parts and upsetting in a crew others, but that is history. You must visit if you are in Berlin.

Praveen Kagatikar: I am amazed & astonished by how the curator has managed to put all the pieces of history together. Specially the Hitlers room has been described as good as it might have happened. We also met the curator in person, he is very humble, polite and is happy to answer questions.Visited on Weekend Wait time No wait Reservation recommended No …More

TF: Well, the bunker has nothing to do with the information provided in the “museum”. The bunker was just one of the many that was built to house Berliners. The whole exhibition was just a recap of Hitler’s life and the history of the two world wars displayed on various boards, nothing you couldn’t read from a book or online. The most interesting element would be the recreation of Hitler’s bunker, but that can be seen in less than 5 minutes lol. No historical pieces of items which you have to be there to see with your own eyes. At 12€, it’s certainly hard to see the value. You would be better off spending the time at the Berlin Memorial Centre or the Topography of Terror museum where information is provided for free.

Avery Ng: Please please people Spend 2-3 hours here and slowly go through the whole exhibition/presentation. This is my most fave part for my Berlin trip. I dont really like this city but this attraction is really worth your time for the history of human. The souvenir here is a lot cheaper and a lot of nice postcards. I bought some!

Brian Hagan: August 2022 • Extremely long and reading-intense museum, but WELL worth it if you like WWII history. Learning more about Hitler was incredibly interesting. Highly recommend!Visited on Weekday Wait time No wait …More

Alan Dick: Have been to Berlin on a number of occasions and never considered this place. However on my recent visit in early December 2022 in went. Well I must say I was very impressed. It is top quality. The audio guides were fantastic and the layout, detail and information were first class. Be prepared to lose track of time - I took nearly 4 hours! WELL WORTH the money. Make sure it’s on your list.

Chic Traveller: DON'T MISS THIS PLACE! A 6'500 sqm civil bunker built in 1942 where you will find a modern multimedia displays on Hitler and National Socialism. Minimum 2 hours are needed. Even if you know well this period you will learn... Like the invoice of the architect of the führerbunker address to Reichminister Albert Speer! Congrats to the curators! Excuse me for the few photos.

Britta Große: I consider it a haven to be visited. The images of brutality in the chronological photography exhibition inside make you feel once again how brutal and painful the events were. It is forbidden to take pictures inside, you feel the cruelty and murderousness of the war as you wander through the concrete walls of the bunker. rg interesting museum, good price with a good tour in their own language. No photos inside, that's something to think about in advance. The tour is quite long and in the beginning there is a tendency to dwell on every detail. But if you do, it soon becomes clear that you are long inside. Lockers free.

Dan Leal: You can't take pictures from the inside or else I would have but this is an excellent exhibition that details how Hitler was able to get the people behind him and commit the atrocities he did. It documents everything from beginning to his rise to power to the war to his inevitable downfall. Given what Putin is doing the similarities ares striking. He is committing genocide against the Ukrainian people and must be stopped. Sadly history is repeating itself

Military History Museum - airport Berlin-Gatow: what do users think?


Joanna Dambska: Great museum, free of charge. So far we have been there twice, the expositions are changing and we saw some new stuff which is great, we even got a book related to one of them for free. Parking and entrance is free and you get a map once you start. For all descriptions English translation is provided. There is a small shop on premises where you can buy vintage models, some souvenirs and also eat something. The offer is very limited, it's basically a sausage with a piece of bread (very tasty though!)/ instant meal, but you can also bring your food and drinks, and have a mini picnic - plenty of benches and tables outside to do so and the area is huge. Strongly recommend!

Aaron Johnston: Excellent museum. Exhibits were outstanding, the HE111 in the main hall was amazing to see. Excellent selection of cold -war aircraft and anti sure missile systems outside. Highly recommended.

Bruno Van de Voorde: A large amount of old fighter jets, from DDR times all the way to the modern era. A beautiful Mig-29 and Tornado, astonishingly well kept.It’s free, just rather far from Berlin (worth it for enthousiasts though)Visited on Weekend Wait time No wait Reservation recommended No …More

Calin Vurdea Photo Art: Very nice museum, if you like airplanes and history. If you are really into it, i think you could stay like 3-4 hours to watch and enjoy everything there.Visited on Weekday Wait time No wait Reservation recommended Not sure …More

Tomek Bogdański: Open air museum with quite a big collection of airplanes, mostly from German air force. There is an exhibition in hangar with very interesting pieces like He 111 and reconstructed Fw 190.

Aman Jain: Must visit place for the History/Military Lovers. The place is free of cost, you’ll get a paper map as soon as you enter the Museum and you can visit all the Hangars/Spots by yourself. They have Equipments ranging from Radar to Planes to V1 Rocket (Replica Perhaps) and you’ll find every single information on the Information Plates before each equipment. I was happy seeing the Flak 88, BF 108 (Not 109), He 111 and many more! I just wish they had Ju87 and BF109s as well. Tip : Don’t miss out on the Hangar 3, that has the best information and equipments available. To Reach : You can take the X34 Bus from Alt-Kladow to reach the Museum. Time : The whole Trip might take 1-4 Hours depending on how much interest you have. Refreshments: There is a small restaurant too inside to sit, reenergise with a quick snack and drink. If TL;DR - Do visit the place, they have maintained it in the best possible way, and you will not regret going there.

Alex0ss: Quite complicated to get there from Berlin but worth the trip. Very quiet place, free, in the countryside with a lot to see and read about the German army and the two world wars. You can also eat and drink there, the neighborhood seems nice enough to spend the whole day there!

Mateusz Kopczyński: Big and diverse collection of (mostly) military plans and some different equipment (mostly from Cold War period, some addition from WWII and earlier). Minimal information on-site, best to have at least some knowledge about avation. Indoor exposition provided with better description of items.

Stefan 020: I have only visited the outdoor exhibition. Lots of western and eastern cold war airplanes and helicopters. The outdoor aircraft are not all in a good shape. Being outside and in the weather creates a lot of wear. The same can be said of some of the info displays who are barely readable (the are QR codes though). Hopefully the outdoor aircraft get some attention and restauration.

Grzegorz Wasik: For main hangar 4 stars but in general my impression is 3 stars: - outside exhibition poor state and many nice planes are rusty dying and placed in chaos - most give away of materials are in german and only some on other languages - vast area but ... not well enough developed - the one main hangar (E?) is perfect and modern but made in complete chaos of flying eras, planes and technical ideas, there is enough place for making one by one cool hostrical aproach and such reach country like Germany can effort it - hostory of Gatov (on first floor) very good, but....all main communication in German...well :( ... - good that entry is free and many young people shall visit

Altes Museum: what do users think?


Soul Michaely: Very interesting museum, pretty large one too. We bought our tickets online in advance and didnt wait in any line. It's required to leave your bags in luggage storage, the service is free of charge of course. The museum is beautiful and compelling, very well organized and comfortable to get around. One staff member did laugh at me when my partner took photos of me, but other than that our visit was a lot of fun:)

Bull Dogg: We visited the Altes Museum while waiting for our time slot at the Pergamon. One shouldn’t compare the two museums but we were equally impressed by the Altes Museum. The collection is huge and the range in history equally grand. The building is beautiful and makes the visit even more enjoyable. Don’t miss standing in the middle of the circular hall and speaking, nice audio effect. The Greek gods on display in the circular hall made it a very special experience. We spent about 90 minutes in the museum and were very happy that we decided to visit. It was well worth the visit and we highly recommend it to anyone, including people who don’t usually go to museums.

Pramila payal: Great Experience. The museum was designated as a UNESCO world heritage site in 1999. Very nice and well kept collection. A free audio guide provides a good interpretation of the objects. The descriptions are both in German and English.

Monika Monique: A collection of Roman and Greek history. Situated on Museum Island, at Lust Garten near the Cathedral/Berliner Dom. A beautiful building. It is a part of UNESCO World Heritage. Built in 1830 by the order of Frederick William III king of Prussia.

Dr_Sia: The museum has so many halls with exhibits. You can get an audio guide at the entrance. In one of the hall you can meet a woman - hall caretaker- who is able to greet you on English, Russian, Italian (not the full list 😃) and now on Ukrainian 😄. The museum is interesting and for grownups and kids, who can see there even yo-yo from the times of Pompei.

Elke Galli: The Altes Museum is a listed building on the Museum Island in the historic centre of Berlin. Built from 1825 to 1830 by order of King Frederick William III of Prussia according to plans by Karl Friedrich Schinkel, it is considered as a major work of German Neoclassical architecture. It is surrounded by the Berlin Cathedral to the east, the Berlin Palace to the south and the Zeughaus to the west. Currently, the Altes Museum is home to the Antikensammlung and parts of the Münzkabinett.
