A perfect summary of Berlin history. Great value for money and a pleasant surprise. The interactive audio guides provided a fun and inclusive experience. Recommend for everyone, families and adults.

Well laid out history of the city without too much information overload. The audio guide lets you listen to items you want to hear more about without having to listen to everything, and it’s an animated recital not a boring in depth lecture! The place...More

The exhibition describes with photographs and in words the mood in Berlin in 1937 and everyday life under the dictatorship of national socialists. Extremely interesting and well-organized exhibition. Highly recommended. Only available until February 25th 2018.

We only visited the exhibition 1937. I expexted more of it. But it was interesting enough. I don't think it's the best museum to visit in Berlin.

The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights
like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum
Island. The central location makes this one of the
city's most expensive places to live. It is here the
oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence
of some significant transformations, as well. The
