  • Very interesting Museum with Berlin's history from its founding as it grew and become the capital of Germany then divided then comes the bunker and reunification to nuclear war

  • Very interesting, with some contents varied, entertaining and very well preserved. Really interesting the visit to the Bunker anti-nuclear, where can as could pose is the life in an eventual attack nuclear. Really spooky.

  • Ideal for soaking up the history of Berlin when arriving in the city: from its Foundation until the fall of the wall, everything is explained through a wonderful Museum, both chronological and thematic. We could spend a whole day in the Story of Berlin. We visit neighborhoods popular reconstiues's work with Frederick the great, Marlène Dietrich... among other... in the cinema, seen the misery of war, separations, we admire the tolerance that allows different religions coexist there. A Museum of history alive helps us to better understand the city during the visits of its various monuments and neighborhoods.

  • 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
