Lots of stuff to touch and look at. A little expensive for what it was but we enjoyed it. Strange products that we aren’t familiar with but likely those who,grew up in east Berlin were. Signs in English

This is a wonderful specialist museum. The exhibits are entertaining and memorable as well as informative. There were a number of teenage school groups there when we visited and they all seemed hugely engaged with it.

Definitely Saturday at 7 p.m. is the better option with less visitors. And yes we are happy that our museum is highly recommended and the average spend is more about 2 hours.
