Much of the museum is under construction. We paid way too much for tickets to see the only exhibition there and saw a very bizarre exhibit. The ticket seller didn’t speak English. If he had, we could have saved some money

Looks great from the outside but hit and miss on what they may have on exhibit at any point in time. So check online in advance.

Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can
both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central
neighbourhood is beginning a new chapter. In the
1950s and '60s, Turkish guest workers settled around
Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and '90s,
rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a
carefree life here. An old hospital even became a
hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today
