No Bauhaus archive materials available as they are about to move to larger premises which is a shame because the building is stunning. The cafe is too small. The shop is cool. The website should have said what was going on to avoid the effort...More

It's fine. But only "fine". You will probably be disappointed in the size and scope of the collection. The Museum of Arts and Crafts (Kunstgewerbemuseum) by Potsdamer Platz should be your second stop if you want to see the Bauhaus movement put into the context...More

Large building houses quite small but perfect exposition of german design school Bauhaus. Large design shop and cafe inside. We expected more items on display and better bookshop but was nice to see some famous pieces in real.

Interesting concept of the museum but not as big exhibition as it was expected. Nice selection of Bauhaus small houses outside.

Did not inform visitors that their only exhibition was photography until March. The exhibition was marginally interesting - occupying the space around 5 times the sizes of their gift shop.

This place is a disgrace.The website does not make it clear that the main exhibition is closed.I made a huge effort to visit and was charged the normal fee just to see a small photographic exhibition.I asked for my money back and got it.

We walked a long way through Tiergarten to see this museum. It is one room. The gift shop has as much in it. It was only 2 or 3 euros to get in. It's barely worth it. The staff are quite officious and not friendly....More

This has a very small gallery where there is a permanent exhibit of Bauhaus made objects. A temporary exhibition space was closed as they were setting up a new show. The gift shop was extensive. The Café small but served good food and coffee. Located...More

Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through

streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through
little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop
