It's a depressing place because it's about the horrors the occurred during wartime. Despite that, it's an important history that we should all see and hear about

Recommended as part of a tour. Well worth a visit. Would recommend as part of the Berlin experience. Less than 1hr duration is the time I would estimate here.

This is an absolute must when in Berlin. Huge amount of info and pictures. Take your time to do both the inside and outside sections. Feels like some miss the inside part but make sure you go through it all, worth taking the extra time

Topology of Terror is a museun with a cronological virw of the WW2 and the holocaust. It is a must visit place to keep alive the memories of that period so the new generations can learn and avoid it on the future. Mainly in this time of rate, discrimination, and ascenssion of facism and and neo-nazis groups, to know the history is mandatory to everyone.

This is one of the best museums we've visited for understanding the horror of the Holocaust. Through film, recordings, and black and photos from WWII, it told the story and named names. Painful subject matter, well-presented.

Definitely it is worthy to visit but with a tour guide.
You can definitely go around and read the all the information, though it will take too much time.

There is a lot of reading but the displays on the inside and outside are some of the most informative on the Nazi years that are on display in Berlin. Although a must for anyone to see, it is really essential for anyone with even a passing interest in the time period. The staff is very helpful and everything is in English and German.
