Second, we have the museum of unheard things. This museum holds a collection of unique objects whose stories are unheard. Here you can read and see the stories behind peculiar objects. You will see objects of science, art and tech, and all of these have ‘untold stories’ in common.

Unique in Berlin: Monster kabinett
The Monster kabinett museum, is the most unsettling museum on this list and maybe in Berlin. This museum is created by the Dead Pigeon Collective. Some might say it is art, however others might say this is a museum out of your nightmares. Malformed robots, metal sculptures and even actors dwell in the halls and rooms of the Monster kabinett.

Design Panoptikum is also known as the museum of bizarre objects. What can you find here? Well, odd objects. You will constantly be looking around strangely and not knowing what you are looking at. Needed for this museum in Berlin, is your imagination and an open mind! You will need both, especially since the owner does not place explanatory signs next to the objects. A cat submarine, an iron lung and much more is displayed in a former Chinese and GDR restaurant, which gives off an abnormal vibe. Truly an unusual museum in Berlin.
Where? Poststraße 7, 10178 Berlin
Museum of Silence
The last eccentric museum on this list is the most peaceful one. When the busy city of Berlin is getting too much and you want to de-stress, this is the perfect place to go. Serenity, calm and reflection are only a few words that come to mind when thinking of museum Der Stille. Therefore, a calm and peaceful place is what the Russian painter Nikolai Makarov wanted to create. You can find different architectural models, soothing lights and colors, and of course: silence.
