  • One of the biggest museums in Berlin, their exhibitions are really good. A “must” if you like modern and contemporary art. You can visit the museum for free every first Tuesday of the month.
  • Collection is really impressive, probably one of the best in this part of Europe (middle-east EU). You'll spend here at least 2 hours if not 2,5. I had issues with navigating around (there is lack of good tour direction) and sometimes with understanding what object is connected to what badge. Arm yourself with Wikipedia or go here for a guided tour. You won't be disappointed!
