The Story of Berlin

This interactive history exhibition is no ordinary museum, but rather an interactive journey through Berlin’s 800-plus years, complete with light and sound shows.

The Story of Berlin organizes historical eras by themes as well as by dates, and each section has plenty to keep kids busy, with touch screens, information drawers, and presentation ranging from clever to intense. Little ones will enjoy searching for the hidden Berlin bears hidden in each theme room.

The “Speed’ segment has sound and video loops of transit innovations, while the section focusing on industrialization has a vibrating floor like a factory. The darkest period of Germany’s history is not ignored; a special series of rooms show the grim nature of the Third Reich in a though-provoking, conceptual fashion.

Highlights in the multi-level museum include the divided living rooms that give a glimpse into life on each side of the Berlin Wall, and the still-functioning underground nuclear bomb shelter built by the city in the 1970’s. Exhibition texts are in English and German; the guided bomb shelter tour (every hour on the hour) is in German and English; other languages are available upon request.

The Story of Berlin is open Monday through Friday from 9am until 8pm; however last admittance is at 6pm.
