Haus der Geschichte der Bundesrepublik Deutschland Reviews
We visited Bonn, in part, to get a feel for modern German history and targeted this museum as a place to visit. We were certainly not disappointed! There is such a wealth of historical information..... more »
Cool free museum about Germany‘s post-war history. Mostly dealing with the period from 1945 to the reunification 1990. Lots of interesting pieces and stories. more »
A wonderful museum with enough information in English for those, like me, with no German. The exhibitions give great insight into the development of Germany since 1945. I have been back several times and taken visitors.
Perfect for Historians From 1945 on words it's well documented and one can spend hours there, it's great for older kids but below 8 it's more perusing through. For adults perfect to go alone so as to enjoy.
