History Be­gins Here

Where Berlin - - MUSEUMS & GALLERIES -

A good way to start any tour of the city is to get an over­view of Berlin’s past at the Story of Berlin mu­seum (this page), where 800 years of city history are com­piled in 23 rooms of a Ku’damm build­ing. The in­ter­ac­tive ex­hi­bi­tion con­tains di­gestible ex­pla­na­tions of the city’s (some­times ter­ri­fy­ing) history and is par­tic­u­larly suit­able for fam­i­lies with chil­dren. High­lights are the mul­ti­me­dia ex­hibits, which al­low you to ex­pe­ri­ence the ev­ery­day life of Ber­lin­ers through­out the eras, and the guided tour through an orig­i­nal Cold War nu­clear shel­ter, lo­cated un­derneath the mu­seum. Visi­tors with smart­phones can down­load a sup­ple­men­tary app to en­hance the visit and a ques­tion­naire to en­cour­age older chil­dren to ex­plore the mu­seum in­de­pen­dently, while the Lit­tle Bear and His Friends game, which can be ob­tained from the cashier, will keep the lit­tle ones en­ter­tained as they search for Berlin’s mas­cot among the ex­hibits.
