This is well worth a visit if you have stamina ! It's so well designed and out together it's just a pity you can't buy a 2 or 3 day pass as its too much to take in on 1 visit !

We hadn't planned to visit this museum, but were so glad we did! Compared to other museums in Berlin it is very cheap (4€ for adults, 2€ for students, free for children) and extremely well-executed and designed. Everything is presented in an interactive and engaging way, so that even topics I might have anticipated finding dull were made interesting here.... More

Entry was reasonable at €4 per adult. Having worked in a communications company, it was interesting and you have insights into other areas also. Did not have our 11 year old with us on this trip, but he would have enjoyed the interactive things for kids.

The staff here were uninterested, unhelpful almost to the extent of being rude. There was no floor plan (although I think you can see a sign which is no use unless you speak German), few exhibits and practically none with English translation. We did find one helpful attendant who showed us how to translate one exhibit. He also told us... More

Looking at the exhibits reminds you just how far we have come in terms of communication to reach the compact devices we all take for granted. It's a lovely airy space with very helpful staff who assisted us in English when we wanted information. You can focus on the evolution of telephony, postage and computers in different sections. There's something... More

As you enter friendly robots will come to play and dance with you, while upstairs you can dance in front of videos of historic scenes to make your own movie. While the Museum for Communication Berlin claims to be the world’s oldest postal museum, founded in 1872, it is right up to date with the 21st century and covers the... More

First of all: the building is stunning and definitely worth seeing. About the exhibition: it's fine, enough interactive to keep our 4 year old daughter busy for an hour or two. For us - we could easily go through it within an hour and it would be enough. But some of the exhibits were interesting. As for Berlin - It's... More

I normally only review places where one can eat or stay but make an exception here because I enjoyed myself so much. We never planned to go here but stumbled upon the place on the way to somewhere else. Entrance is just 4 euros (2 with a Berliner card). The ground floor has a few displays around a big circular...

I guess it 's probably not the first museum you visit in Berlin, but definitely worth a couple of hours of your time.

We visited the exhibition "no pain no game" (hihly recommended for adults with and without kids! till June 2016). Even on a Sunday it was not too crowded, because the collections are spread over 3 floors in a gallery around a wonderful main court. Many interactive pieces as well, even for smaller children. If you already have some interest in... More

Staying in Mitte

Neighbourhood Profile
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 gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
