Germany has had a glorious past of about 1500 years. The museum houses over 7000 exponents that take you through the history of people, places, hardships, lifestyles and the journey of Germany which has lived, loved and lost in the past years. The year of 1945 is famously known as the year of destruction, rising from the ashes and a year for Germany where it learnt to stand on its feet. This museum hence presents to you a chance to explore the intriguing history of a nation that has so much to teach you as well as tell you. Remember to take back with you a few artefacts from the museum shop. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Berlin itinerary 7 days.

If you like history I totally recommend this place. Is not well signaled where to start, but is in the second floor and then you should continue straight and follow the exhibition through the different periods of history. Unfortunately my train left the day I visited and could only visit the first half (second floor) and just visit the second part in a rush (first floor) which is from after the first world War. In information they told me the tour with audio is 2.5 hours express and 4 hours for the long audio guide.
If you want to know more about German history then this it's the place to go. The exhibits are well displayed with simple easy to understand explanations. My highlight was seeing Napoleon's hat and sword he left behind at the Battle of Waterloo. Well worth a visit and so close to the Island of Museums
A very interesting and nice place to visit. The exhibition about saving in Germany is quite educative and entertaining. The permanent exhibitions are also a must. Definitely, when going to Berlin, this must be one of the first places on the the list. Besides, its coffee shop and the souvenirs shop have a wide offer for their visitors
Really enjoyed our trip. Excellent exhibition on Europe and the Sea. A logical sequence of exhibits from 1500 to the present day. The highlight for me was Napoleon's hat taken from the battle of Waterloo.
We visited the galleries to 1919 and found them interesting but heavy on kings and queens. Very little on cultural life through the ages with the exception of Goethe. But well worth visiting. We'll do 1919 onwards on our next Berlin trip.
