During my visit legendary Helmut Newton's photography was displayed, which was excellent experience. The museum it self is good located and had nice facilities. After the visit you can chill down and talk with your friend over local vine which is sold on ground floor....More

as a holder of the Berlin Museums year card we luckily didn't have to pay the entry (8€), as the visit was quite disappointing: First: this is called "Museum of Photography" but it clearly doesn't deserve this title (at least not at the moment of...More

I local friend in Berlin told me to go and it was a nice surprise. There wasn't a ticket charge when I went. The museum feels strangely placed next to the train station, which is a bit rough around the edges. I enjoyed seeing all...More

As an art/fashion photographer I especially wanted to see the permanent exhibition of the life and work of German-Australian photographer Helmut Newton. I could not find any early information on his life in the exhibition but born of Jewish parents he escaped Germany prior to...More

This is a portrait gallery - not a museum. The ground floor houses a permanent exhibition of some Helmut Newton paraphernalia but mostly magazine shots including some of the more grotesque that might offend modern tastes (splayed chicken with stilettos, woman fellating a gun, etc.)...More

I take thousands of photos every year and welcomed the chance to visit the Museum. The female on reception made it as clear as she could that there were no Helmut Newton photos on display, which wasn’t a problem as that wasn’t the reason we...More

If you like photography visit it. A enough big museum. If you go in detail you will need about 2 hours for a visit.

We saw the exhibitions of Helmut Newton, Guy Bourdin and the one about modern photography in China. All were fascinating. For photography buffs, a must see.

This is a great little museum, featuring two parts - the permanent Helmut Newton exhibition and the temporary exhibition area. I've reviewed the (overrated) Helmut Newton part separately. The temporary exhibition featured the STUNNING "Undressed" exhibition of Mario Testino. The exhibition includes numerous gigantic photographs...More

A great place to view large-scale fashion photography - images a Rollei TLR with f/2.8 lens can produce in the hands of a skilled photographer like Helmut Newton (camera on display). The permanent exhibition, Helmut Newton's Private Property, is an comprehensive look at Helmut's methods...More

Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through
the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which
lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood.
Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city:
upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades
and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone
streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through
little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop
