My boyfriend recommended this museum to me, which I kind of regret going to. It is very small, and chock-full of what looks like tschotschkes from my grandma's closet (minus Nazi paraphernalia). It's kind of cool to look at, but the explanations they have are not much fun to read in detail so the whole things feels pretty silly pretty... More

Berlin has a lot to offer when it comes to musea. So we visited a lot of them, also Museum der Dinge. To be honest, it did made us laugh some times and we felt a bit nostalgic. But still, a lot of it is more junk than it has a cultural value. It gives the impression of a second... More

I loved the Museum der Dinge - both for the fascinating collections of everyday objects but also for the way they were displayed: sometimes a case of yellow items, sometimes a whole case of plastic kitchenware from the 60s, sometimes a collection of scale models of Bauhaus furniture. True, it is not huge, and true it is fairly expensive to... More

We stumbled across this museum by sheer coincidence and we were very well surprised. In the end, it is a design museum and it's - literally - just "stuff" being displayed. But that is done in a most entertaining and educational way. Really interesting and worth a visit.

For the 6 Eur entrance I was a bit disappointed.. It took a bit about 5 minutes to walk through and not a lot of cool things even though there were a few cute things it was not worth the effort nor money..

It is a well organized collection of houshold things from the 19th century and up to now. After 45 minutes I had seen enough. I guess its very cool if u are a collector of anything. But I'm not.

The museum was great and the content was very good. However it was a little on the pricey side at 6 euros per person for a small museum with an experience that is under an hour.

fascinating display cabinets filled with carefully curated objects of notable design, quite small, but admission is only 6 euro. On a street filled with cool bars/cafes and bookshops.

Museum if you're curious as I am on Industrial design and packaging. It features an amazing and great collection of all kind of every day obejcts and loads of information on good and bad design practices in Germany for the last 125 years. Good thing to add to your visit in Kreuzberg.

This is a cute museum (entrance is 6 euros) in Kreuzberg, a very hipster/turkish part of town off the beaten path of the normal tourist haunts more to the west of the city. The museum itself will take you 45-60 minutes to walk through, the main explanations are in German and English but the individual items are only in German.... More

Staying in Kreuzberg

Neighbourhood Profile
Kreuzberg
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 you can still find the best kebabs in town and many underground clubs, but a lot has changed as well. The hospital has been transformed into an art center, and increasingly you will find new urban cafés, restaurants and designer shops. Rising housing prices and gentrification threaten the spirit of this area along the Spree River, but the neighbourhood’s legacy is upheld by a very engaged community fighting to preserve its rebellious identity.
