Discover the Berlin of secret agents and espionage. Where the Berlin Wall once divided the city, the German Spy Museum Berlin gives a unique insight into the shadowy realm of spying.

Lovely museum very informative and interesting. Suits the needs of 5 upwards. Translation German to English was good and relatively accurate. Certainly left feeling I knew more if not a little more paranoid that I am being watched!!!! Really good. Even better to check that the listening posts are working as some did not.

Cute, interactive museum - great for kids

Quite a popular museum with some interesting facts. There is a variety of interactive exhibits which are great for children especially. Most of what is available is in both English and German, however there were some video interviews which were in German and didn't have English subtitles or voiceovers. I also found it incredibly frustrating that when you exit you end up in the gift shop/cafe which is not attached to the original entrance. At the entrance there are lockers - so if you've used these lockers you need to go outside to get back to them. On a day when it's raining this is especially annoying

A must visit for Spy fans

As the host of Spybrary Podcast I was excited to visit the German Spy Museum. Some of the online reviews seemed a little mixed so I was unsure what to expect. I ended up spending 5 hours in the museum and I could easily have stayed 10 hours more. So much spy info here. I learned so much and was especially fascinated by the story of Rainer 'Topas' Rupp who as a Stasi agent embedded in NATO was able to tell the Stasi and the KGB that NATO mobilisation was part of an exercise and not an actual attack. This was back in the early 80s when the world was on a knife edge. Did Topas save us from all out nuclear war? I especially enjoyed the blend of spy history with spy fiction, enjoyed all the 007 memorabilia. This is not just a museum for spy nerds like me. There are plenty of exhibits which are fun including a laser game. This is a fun and informative museum and I will be back!
