This is part of Munich/Germany history and the Centre is very interesting. Although there is a lot of reading - audio is also available. I wish there were chairs around to take a break - but well worth the trip/time

This is an outstanding museum and well worth spending at least 3 hours. It covers the origins, fall and aftermath of Nazis in a very informative way. Honest and open. Surprising that it took so long . Highly recommended

This museum documenting WWII offers information, videos, photos, reading material on each floor. The learning curve of the atrocities, damage and pain of a horrific war is immense. They offer excellent lectures. Must do in Munich!
