Monsterkabinett, Berlin

3.6
#60 of 121 in Museums in Berlin
Specialty Museum Museum
For a spooky museum experience, visit Monsterkabinett--a haunted-house art gallery established by the art group Dead Pigeon Collective. Make your way through the dark and daunting atmosphere of this old warehouse as spooky robotic creatures and costumed actors emerge from every corner. The space and collection are fascinating, but the overall experience is not suitable for visitors who are sensitive to flashing lights, loud noises, and frightening scenarios. With our world travel planner, Berlin attractions like Monsterkabinett can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Totally waste of money and time. Spent 8 eur rather for beer or something Else. This whole show was really wierd and totally boring. I am Very sorry but i can NOT find any positive points To say about...  more »
  • Creative, a little scary (but okay for kids with parents), zany, musical, unique! It's a guided walk through a land of giant animatronic monsters who sing and dance and complain and strut and you are ...  more »
  • They are the eight euros worse invested in Berlin without any doubt. At first it seems fun and different, but only during the first few minutes. Then, you realize that they are 20 minutes of music and very loud sounds combined with the movement of machines without any kind of grace more. Worst? That the exit attempt to sell you a souvenir! Nothing recommended!

  • Easily one of the coolest places in Berlin. Definitely a "must see" on any trip to Berlin (summer and winter). It's great to know that places like this still exist in Berlin so please make sure to support this one-of-a-kind place! Check opening times.
  • If you like edgy, home-made art with a steampunk vibe, don't miss this place. There are only probably nine pieces but they range in size from tabletop to room-filling. While the whole thing is computerized, the individual pieces work by hydraulics and clanking metal. (And I mean CLANKING -- somebody asked for earplugs while I was there.) Show is about half an hour long and ends with a five-minute industrial metal song lip-synced by a giant five-headed ... uh, thing in a mirrored room. If this doesn't intrigue you, stay away. Admission is 8 euros and there are showtimes you'll need in advance: last night I was there at 7:30.
  • Very friendly staff. Awesome crew. Amusing and fun experience! Lasts about 20 minutes and is great to go with a drink. Costs about €8
  • Weird weird place. I wish the act would be better developed, it has potential to be interesting
  • So... We arrived, paid, told the show would start in 30 mins and that we should come back. When we did, we were told to wait in the cinema foyer and that the guy running the show would come and get us when it was time. Another 30 mins later we had still not been picked up, so we went down to check on the guy. The show was over, he had forgotten about us. We got a refund and a sticker. The one star is for inconsiderate, poor service.

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.
