German Historical Museum - Review

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.

German Historical Museum, Berlin Reviews

  • An excellent historical museum, I recommend it heartily to all with an appetite for learning about Germany. I don't understand those who suggest 2 hours for a visit; if you want to read and learn (and otherwise why come?), a day might suffice, but museum saturation will probably set in long before you've seen everything. For me, a couple of visits of perhaps 3-4 hours each is about right, to include the often excellent special exhibitions . . .

  • Amazing and large museum. My niece who goes to school in Berlin said that her class would come to a small part of the museum to study it and each year they would visit another section. I recommend quickly walking through to see the scope of it and then focusing on the fascinating more modern parts on the main floor.

  • I love museums. This was unfortunately the only one I was able to visit during my two days trip. And I would definitely recommend it. I went early morning so there were just a few people there. Got refreshed quite a few things on my memory about German history. Nice expositions. Audio guides available. Overall very good museum if you like to history.

  • Great details and historical context presented in German and English. I stuck to the first floor and the late 19th and 20th century. Organized such that the timeline moves as you walk through the museums. Well worth a couple of hours. More relaxed than the crowded museum island venues. Many interesting and unexpected items are part of the collection along with unfolding political and military events.

  • The first exhibit I saw was an interesting map about borders. I personally thought it focused too much on the present day European Union and its borders. A history museum should leave current affairs to the historians of the future. After that though, very positive. An excellent museum that has plenty to say and says it well. The museum pulls no punches when dealing with difficult topics and is very educational. Highly recommend.
