Story of Berlin information
This engaging museum breaks 800 years of Berlin history down into bite-size chunks that are easy to swallow but substantial enough to be satisfying. Each of the 23 rooms uses sound, light, technology and original objects to zero in on a specific theme or epoch in the city's history, from its founding in 1237 to the fall of the Berlin Wall. The creepily fascinating climax is a tour (in English) of a still-functional atomic bunker beneath the building.
