  • 2 bellles parts, beautiful works of art, an exhibition on activism and beautiful pictures. Not exhaustive

  • Was surprised how well attended, a lot was going on. Special exhibition was very interesting. Unfortunately, too little was over Berlin's gay history, the local, the personalities.

  • The room was a bit cold and an explanation of the Organization of the rooms could be given... Past that, the permanent expo is fairly small but interesting. The two temporary exhibitions were great with a very good set design for one of it.

  • Small but very informative museum, staffed by sweet, competent people. This place features exhibits that constitute an excellent rundown of German LGBT history, as well as temporary exhibitions of art by LGBT artists. Very much recommended if you're interested in these issues, but be warned that some of the topics discussed may upset you.
  • Nicely organized and very informative. Although the main focus is LGBTQ exhibits speak to bigger issues surrounding sexuality, gender and the state. The new screening space is a nice addition to an already great museum. Well worth a visit -- plan to stay 90 to 120 minutes.
  • Interesting place but a little bit on the porny side rather than very fully informative. Was hoping to learn more. But well curated.
  • A must-see to get an idea about the gay-themed culture in Berlin. A nice courtyard where you can have coffee. However, the entrance ticket is way too expensive comparing with the size of the exposition
  • Surprisingly interesting, much better than i remember from the old mehringdamm site. Mostly artworks so perhaps more gallery than museum but there is a consistent thread in the content so you can see the story they are telling. Also a cafe and shop, the shop sells what you might call an adult selection so people with children might want to give that part a miss.
