  • The experience was interesting and I had no idea many Germans immigrated back to Germany after the WW2. It was disappointing as they advertise you can find out more about those who immigrated but...

  • Wow! My family emigrated to the USA from Germany so it was very interesting to learn about the whole history and process. I thought it would be boring but the museum is set up in a way that is really interesting. Many rooms make you feel like you are experiencing everything yourself. We didn't even get to see everything before they closed. Highly recommended, especially for a trip with kids/schools!
  • Incredible interactive museum. An absolute must and an eye opener. Most of the exhibition had English and I've been twice now four years apart. The exhibition has grown and improved and the English coverage increased during that time. On my last visit I found myself In a room with no English on my headset. I found an employee and asked if my headset might be broken and he informed me this room was one of few that hasn't been translated. But then he went out of his way to inform me of some facts and where I could find relevance and Interest before moving on. As you can tell I bloody loved this place! So informative.
