  • Sehr interessant! You must to come and visit this museam.

  • Very well maintained museum! Too many technologies used to showcase the history. Moreover it is free of cost.

  • The House of the History of the Federal Republic of Germany is one of the best museums of its kind and a visit is highly suggested to those interested in German culture and history. The exhibitions are carefully chosen and perfectly described or explained in numerous foreign languages. The museum is only a few meters away from the river Rhine and other impressive sights in Germany's former capital city. It's easily accessible by bus, foot or train.
