This Museum is in the centre of Berlin. Upon entering it is the vast space that first impresses. Many instrument collections I have seen are in small spaces. Here you can walk around almost all exhibits including those in exhibition cases. Although the keyboard instruments...More

I followed the audio guide, which is available in English. Most of experiences about 'classics' were bounded in glass, while some of them were not. I found we should not even touch them for the sake of conserving original status. I didn't know why they...More

The museum has a great collection of instruments as well very nice facilities. The building is very nice and the location perfect. We went there with our two kids (6 and 4) and they liked the children’s corner. The staff is very unhelpful and rude....More

A good collection of early instruments in particular but not much information about them! Ask for the audio guide (available in English) which has lovely recordings of many of the instruments.

Had a wonderful visit to this museum, fantastic collection of instruments, well worth the entrance fee. Downside, rude man working on the front desk, he didn't want to engage in conversation about premises, was best described as abrupt, totally disinterested in customers, we weren't offered/informed...More

We went to this museum specifically to see the Good Vibrations exhibition. The history of synthesizers and drum machines was clearly developed with a variety of hands on exhibits. All of the exhibits in this section had both English and German explanations. The exhibit could...More

Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through
the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which
lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood.
Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city:
upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades
and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone
streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through
little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop
