  • Very good museum, nice anatomy collection, but not for everyone - you must have a stomach for it.
  • small collection but good. interesting anatomy collection
  • Really great museum, not for the faint of heart though. Well worth the price (10 euro) for 2 hours inside.
  • If they allowed for me take photos, that would be so great.
  • Truly amazing museum if you are into medicine and/or life sciences!

Where to stay in Berlin

The Kreuzberg neighborhood near the Oberbaumbrüke bridge is central and full of Berlin icons: street art, a piece of the Berlin Wall, the East Side Gallery, and a proliferation of cafes. Friedrichshain is another option with a hip vibe due to the students who congregate at its cafes and galleries. Consider Mitte as a historic home base. Mitte is the area where almost all of Berlin's well-known buildings are located, and it is within walking distance of Alexanderplatz. For a peaceful residential area, try Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf where the streets are lined with boutiques and quiet coffee shops.
