  • We were several times in this museum. It has hardly ever tourists in it and is not run over either otherwise. The exhibitions were always interesting and well looked after. The entrance fee is very human.

  • We were walking in the area and came upon this place so we took a chance and went in. Had some really nice exhibits but was just a bit dry and on the boring side. But if someone is really into communi...  more »
  • We are on the run from the rain, more went by chance in the Museum for communication. On the different floors of the Museum, various exhibitions on the topic of communication offer the visitor. One is taken on a journey through the communication of man and finds lots of interesting and new to the part. The exhibition is very interactive and invites young and old to try out the different possibilities of communication on-site. We were impressed by the exhibition. As a student or students to get a discount for the inlet.

  • Interesting place. Staff seemed a little perplexed I visited though as an English person, which initially concerned me. Probably just mutual confusion as they were very friendly otherwise. The items in this museum are mainly presented in German, which is a bit of a pity as a typical Englishman but still worth a visit!!
  • A great and interestind exhibition for all kinds of communication. Good for everybody, loved by kids.
  • I loved all the equipments present there. Most of them are a mix between science and art. We had a lot a fun in the "no pain no gain" exhibition. The snake game where you have to run to hit the control of your snake is really an amazing and an addictive idea. Kudos to the exhibition creators. It's the most interactive exhibition I have ever seen. Attention to details can clearly be felt. It's perfect for adult and children.
  • Great afternoon trip with the kids. Robots, old phones, a letter shoot to use and test - great fun for the grownups and kid (7)
  • If you are in to geeky stuff, it will be intersting for you. Very insightful for children. Architecture is magnificent inside. Expositions are great, but very few material is translated to English.

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.
