Largely a research center but also a museum on the Bauhaus history. The collection is however limited to one large exhibition room and the items on display are not unique (often seen in other museums that show this time period). The second exhibition room was...More

Worst Museum/art gallery I've ever been to (and I've been to a lot!) It costs 8 euro each and there are literally 2 rooms (that you can see from the entrance) with about 10 items in each. Yes there is an audio guide that means...More

Very interesting and informative museum about the thinking behind the movement and society at that time. The museum was quite small but I overheard a woman who worked there who said that this is due to renovation that will be taking place soon.

The archive has a small but interesting selection of items with good explanations of the Bauhaus ideas. They also provide a free audio guide. Don't miss the video of Gropius' house! The temporary exhitbition of Morrison, where we were allowed to take photos, gave a...More

the building ot self is nice, but the museum is really poor. i do not think that an entire movment can be summarise1z in 2 rooms and few objects. disappointing. nothing to add.

But not at all what was expected of a design and architecture museum. To be honest we found it a waste of time and would have learnt much more about Bauhaus architecture just walking the streets.

Very disappointing. Very little on display for 8 euro. The temporary exhibition was mediocre and we were surprised to find that the 'Bauhaus in Bewegung' exhibition was just the standard collection rearranged and is barely about movement. Also, it's just too many small pieces squashed...More

If you like the Bauhaus movement or want to know more about, then you must go to the Bauhaus Archive. It's not the most touristic spot so you won't find a lot of people wich is great. Great archive, great to see.

Not what I imagined at all. Small cramped, very little history of the movement. Hardly anything on their architecture. Doesn't draw you in. Half of it is like walking around Habitat. Very disappointing. Crazy expensive gift shop. Cafe looks good.

Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through
the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which
lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood.
Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city:
upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades
and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone
streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through
little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop
