  • Amazing location, in the bunker with audio guide everyone is his own leader. Time plays no Rolle.Berliner story simply but very exciting close installed. Man is excited and is not killed by a wealth of information. Simple but wtzige Aufmachung.Ein is worth visiting, especially when it rains, one is in good hands.

  • With a well-accessible entrance, as 5 Euro person, you can learn more about the history of the city including Nazism and the divided Germany, displayed objects you part of the story. That is, neither more nor less so as if the historical subject does not attract you, better not enter.

  • Highly recommended and should be seen. The Museum provides a historically interesting insight into Berlin's history on a good and vibrant way. Recommended also for family visits with slightly older children.

  • Amazing if you want a thrill, there's a small museum as well. It's a fun place. But not much if you're into good museum's
  • This place is great if your looking for something to do and that in unexpected look its nothing modern but has its own charm. its cheap in my opinion. Has a bottom level filled with historical facts and items from developing Berlin. Really nice guide/serivce desk attendant that informed more then the average museum co work. Made are visit that much more enjoyable!......bringing us to the 3rd floor! okay so it is horror based and I would expect freight but this was a new level! so scared and ya lasted 30 seconds so if its your thing go for it! but they are professional and have the time to be scary!
  • very scary! informative too
  • Museum was meh. The "bunker" is not a recreation but done as a haunted house disappointingly.
  • Located in a bunker, this small museum provides a very nice and concise overview of the history of Berlin from its origins in the 12th century until today, through artifacts, photographs, and videos. A very helpful introduction to Berlin before a deeper dive in more specialized museums.
