    One should not miss this museum. Aircraft, cars, ships, railway, all there to in mass. Fully equipped workshops provide skills that partially today no longer exist.

    The Museum is fantastic, has a very vast, but Rico suffers in the communication. Or you speak fluent German, or purchase an expensive audio guides in English or Spanish. You can enjoy the view of the parts, but virtually all of them just have callouts (which are, your story, for those who serve, as work) in German.

  • This is probably the best museum I have ever been to after seeing many museums around the world. The museum is much bigger than expected and has several hands on features good for adults and children. With admission at only 8€, you will be able to spend more than a full day inside exploring and learning how things work. The best part for my visit was the printing press. The live demonstration was excellent first hand. The guide was clearly knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the demo which made it great. He was able to answer all my questions. The demo was really cool to make the museum really come to life!
  • This museum has an amazing collection! We focused on the cars, planes, ships and trains! I've been to a similar museum in London and this is far more impressive. There is so much to do here. We paid €17 for 2 adults + 3 children family ticket and it was well worth it. The science centre, brewery, museum park and other exhibits like jewelry, textile and sugar are all included. Decent food being served at the museum cafe. You can easily spend a day here.
  • So big that you can get lost. Because of the location and of the dimension, never busy. Which is a plus when you want to enjoy an afternoon at the museum. Plenty of trains, boats and airplanes in the new area. Lovely park outside, where you can find even a wind mill! I have been a couple if times, but still haven't visited it all (photography, textiles etc...). Will return ;)
  • good presentations on sugars, industrial knitting, naval and aerial devices, etc including u boot submarine, aircraft engines. Large. Count several hours if interested. Worth a visit if such topics over German industry interest you.
  • It is amazing the collection about the history of ships and aircrafts. The museum is pretty big, so you are going to spend at least have of the day there. The museum park is great for picnics and if you have children.

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.
