This former gestapo headquarters is well worth visiting, as others have mentioned it is a good idea to get an audio guide otherwise much will be missed unless fluent in German. It is not expensive.
Ideally this building requires at least 2 visits as there...More
This multi level museum has managed to preserve some amazing history whilst also detailing some of the atrocious crime committed under its roof. The lower 2 levels are in both German and English, unfortunately the upper 2 levels are in German only, which was disappointing...More

When you pay for the tickets which are cheap at only 4.50 euros PP, we were offered a guide but declined. We wish we...More

I think there is too much to take in for an 8yr old in the audio guide and as an English speaker rather than a German you need the audio guide because so many of the displays are in German. However you could do a much abbreviated tour of downstairs with a careful explanation to a youngster and miss out the information heavy stuff
