Great idea for a museum. It's has two rooms; one for contraception and the other for abortion. Lots of information there, but a lot of stuff will be lost in translation if you aren't a German speaker. I got an audio guide in English which was good but I still would have liked to read the panels and the legal... More

This is a museum of a special kind. Privately financed, it just has two rooms and volunteers. There is not much to see either, but the (free) audioguide keeps you entertained for a long time. If you are into some different and partly creepy stuff - this is a must go. And its worth supporting a good cause !

This is a real gem. Easy to get you and has English-language audio commentary. Provides a broad yet concise history of these issues and documents the importance of them for human rights in general and women's rights in particular. DO NOT MISS IT!

The museum is quite informative, and although small (only 2 rooms) you can easily kill 1-2 hours. There is an audio guide available (if you're lucky you become one, as we visited the museum were all in use) If you speak German you don't need a guide actually, there are many information written. Really interesting little museum

It's just two rooms, but there's a lot of information packed into them. You'll probably have learned a lot of it in high school, but some of the historic facts (like the frog pregnancy tests) were quite new to me. There's a really good audioguide available for free, but I do wish there were written English explanations available because I... More

Was attending a conference and decided to check this out. It's a small museum, but give yourself an hour to explore. Only open a few hours a few days per week, but WORTH IT. Highly recommend the audio tour. I learned more than I expected!
