This is a quick visit, less than an hour, but an amazing experience. It's humbling to stand in the spot where so much evil ended. 5€ to get in, but if you bring students, be sure to have your student ids for a free entrance....More

Small museum with some artifacts but worth the admission to see the room where Germany surrendered. History typically teaches about the surrender in Berlin, but this is where the original surrender takes place. There is a short movie. It will take about an hour to...More

An interesting little museum. You only need a max of 1hour. There's a 20min video that gives a good background to the lead up of the ending if WW2 and relevance of the museum. The war room itself is also interesting but the rest is...More
