The DesignPanoptikum, or Museum of Extraordinary Objects, is a treasure trove of the strange and unexpected. The shop front, in a dingy Plattenbau on Torstraße, looks like a strange junk shop, but visitors are soon led further into owner Vlad's bizarre collection. The museum displays historical everyday – and not-so-everyday – objects and curiosities from the history of medicine, the film industry, sports, aviation, construction, industry, and household goods.

Part design museum, part house of horrors, the fact that all these curious objects were once part of normal life is thrilling. Vlad gives personal tours, if you're lucky! A bizarre Berlin institution.

Torstraße 201, Mitte
Open Mon-Sat: 11:00-18:00
