Overview

THE STORY OF BERLIN is the interactive museum of the capital. Spread over 6.000 square meters visitors can explore 800 years of Berlin history. In 23 theme rooms – each of them designed individually and equipped with modern multimedia technology – everyone can experience everyday life of the people of Berlin during different eras. One highlight of the exhibition is a guided tour through an original nuclear bomb shelter from the Cold War below the Kurfurstendamm which still can be used by 3.592 persons in case of an emergency. We offer a special search game called "Pinky & Fox". Carrying a pencil and the treasure map, kids go on a discovery tour through the museum. On request older children get our STORY-Quiz leaflet with some puzzle games and thrilling details about the Berlin history.

This museum offers a guided tour of a cold war bunker which was the highlight of the day. Really gave you a true insight into the cold war berlin. Must do experience while in Berlin.

As with most Berlin museums, this one was very well presented - in German and English. The only negative was that the back-lighting made some of the text hard to read.

They don't have wheelchairs, but it's accessible for wheelchairs, if that was the question.

Yes, you can drop it off at the front entrance when you buy your tickets. Also, they don't let backpacks in so if you have one, you will need to leave it there.
