Designpanoptikum, Berlin

(4.5/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
Described as a "surrealist museum of industrial objects," Designpanoptikum celebrates all things utilitarian, including objects from sports, aviation, medicine, and film. However, the displays are not straightforward and educational, but rather blend objects from different fields to create works of art. The installations are lit in shadow and don't offer any description; instead, you are encouraged to handle the objects and speculate about their use. Your ticket also includes entry to a photo gallery with the work of Vlad Korneev. Using our online itinerary creator, Berlin attractions like Designpanoptikum can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
