Delve into history at Military History Museum of Bundeswehr, a German Armed Forces' military museum, focusing on the Bundeswehr military faction. The displays here are different than what you might expect. Instead of military weapons and a focus on victory, this museum highlights the causes and consequences of war on humanity. Nevertheless, you will also find artifacts, such as uniforms, handguns, artwork, and official records.

  • This is well worth going to see. I came here yesterday along with 50 others on the coach. Its a must for Historians. Its not close to the centre of Berlin so would need your own transport, or like me ...  read more »
  • This is a very interesting aviation museum. There are few other museums which have so many old Western and Soviet aircraft next to each other. Some of the internal exhibits in the hangars are rare and...  read more »
  • The Museum is located in the former Gatow airport, thirty from the Centre of Berlin. There is a meso he gets there before, but it gets quite easily with the S-Bahn station Spandau-Rathaus (Town Hall) and then by bus 115 who takes the terminus just outside the station: boarded it is good to ask the driver if you have to go down and then you must take a walk of about 10/15 minutes. In return, the visit is completely free. Very set on the cold war and East-West relationship. Strong emphasis is given to the airlift which was released just at Gatow to supply West Berlin when the Soviets built a block that prevented the supplies by land. Stands near the entrance a DC3 Dakota Australian Aviation played a role in this historic operation. Extending the view is wide and divided into pavilions made in the old hangar: it takes at least a couple of hours for a visit not very thorough, an avid there will pass at least half a day. However, inside there are services and a dining area that offers soft drinks, coffee, cupcakes and Wuerstel (these are not free!) As for vintage cars, there are some in the first Pavilion, though I would say that the interesting part is that from World War II onwards. The second world war, apart from a fighter plane recovered from the seabed, there isn't much. There is, however, in the palazzzina control tower Tower a comprehensive history of the Luftwaffe, a model of the airport at the time of the airlift and interactive games including a gauge reflexes. In the seventh Hall there is also a reconstruction of the bombed Berlin with scrap impressive aircraft-engine. All in all a visit not to be missed for fans of both aviation history that both. Since a good part of the exhibition is located outdoors and to reach the entrance of the bus you have to walk about a kilometre walk, I'd advise against the visit in bad weather and in summer too hot. Perhaps a medium that connects directly to the Museum would not have to sneeze, could very well be the same 115 making a detour: but if the Germans, so efficientisti and proactive, have contemplated such a solution, a valid reason should certainly be there.
