  • An amazing museum very well done. It was very busy but plenty of space to listen and look at the pictures etc. Have never been in a museum with total silence very thought provoking. Must admit learnt ...  more »
  • One of the best organized museums I've visited. Audio guide equipment is perfect. It reads the signs in your native language, and it provides extra narration if you desire. Best of all, it's synchroni...  more »

  • Visit made last week. This was a comprehensive and fascinating exhibition and I learned a lot more about the years leading up to the outbreak of WW II than I knew before. Do allow a good 3 hours. My only slight disappointment was the congress hall at the end. There seemed to be only one vantage point - a catwalk high up above ground level. On the ground, the area seems to be used for the storage of various things including vehicles and other junk. It would be better to clear the site and enable people to finish their tour on the ground of this building that was never finished. They could set up "stations" which visitors can walk around so they can understand this building a lot better. We went on to look at the Zeppelin Field where Hitler held many of his rallies. Again a bit disappointed that this area has been left to crumble and become overgrown with vegetation, with a random mixture of roads, a car racing track and playing fields randomly spread across the area. I think it's possible to preserve history without glorifying it. Nevertheless a very eerie atmosphere on a grey evening and the stand from where Hitler delivered his many speeches served as a chilling reminder of the events that took place 80 years ago. Thoroughly recommend a visit to the whole complex.
  • Really informative, good layout, lots to see. Can take a while so worth visiting at least twice. The free audio guides are good. Worth spending two hours minimum here and taking some time to visit the lake and rally ground area.
