  • Is there trouble to entertain foreign visitors. The area seems to me until the Nazi era rather meager and strenuous informative. It rushes through time with more superficial information, must read very much and quickly drift. From the NAZI period, it will "medial" and entertaining. Is probably simply because that materials and information for a private operator from this time are easier to get. The nuclear bunker was worth seeing. The Guide also. Who is not too much depth of a "Museum" and just 2 hours informative wants to pass, is in good hands.

  • Smart to download an app, and thus get the texts in Danish. Don't expect anything special about 2. During World War II, but only Berlin's role in the war and the cold war. Interesting tour of the bunker.

  • Everything is very interesting, well presented (short explanations) and the Museum is huge! All around the Museum and read the explanations (German or English) can take a lot of time! The Museum is exceptional, it's very nice to stroll through the Museum! The visit of the fallout shelter is very interesting also, not to be missed!

  • You can not describe in words. Magnificent, awesome, beautiful and many more. But!!! Very important!! If you go to visit it don't miss the anti-nuclear underground fort
  • Don't you dare leaving Berlin without going to this museum! It's a great walk through the whole history of the city, from Roman times to most recent events. Absolutely entertaining.
  • Good walk through and entertaining but the audio guide app needs improving. Also the nuclear bunker could be just an underground carpark with beds inside.
  • Good overview of the city including a tour of the Cold War Bomb Shelter. Tour is quite rushed with no time to read/view the material on display. Museum is very extensive but a lot to read.
  • The Museum itself was okay, but the tour of the original bunker was quite interesting with a guide that spoke OK english
