  • The money slot was extremely polite. Free cloakroom. The Museum is big but I think ypertimimeno. Has many things to see but has no audio driver causing it to have to read thousands of things. Also is a little messed up. You will need 1 to 2 hours to see it all. There is a free tour at specific times.

  • Worth a visit for both adults and children. The Museum and interactive, and makes you go through the history of playful way. They offered a set of "bear hunt" for children, so while the adults are watching everything with calm, the kids look for the bear and interact with local history. The guided tour of the Bunker was super interesting to everyone, my kids, 8 and 10 years old, enjoyed a lot and a lot of questions. Is a great option for winter days with children. Worth

  • 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
