  • Amazing Museum! The place is very huge, well planned and maintained, so take your time visiting it. Free entrance, so you can always come back once you're more familiar with the German language, but some are translated in English and you can listen to the audio guide. Suited for families with kids, couples, and solo. Recommend if you are visiting Bonn.
  • Truly a must see for every German citizen and everyone who is interested in German and recent European history. What is especially captivating is the fact that each part of the exhibition is visually and physically enhanced by original objects and artifacts which are telling a story about their past much better than a simple picture or text. While you can easily spend an entire day here without having seen everything, I’d recommend to split the entire exhibition in at least two visits to better process the vast amounts of information and pictures.
