Scenes from Berlin – 03

OK, let’s give it up for the Ramones Museum! @ramonesmuseum

Situated in the Mitte district, not far from the River Spree, on Krausnickstrasse, just off Oranienburger Strasse (love these street names!). Started by a fan, Flo Hayler, who, it is said, had accumulated so much Ramones memorabilia in his home that his girlfriend said it had to go. The current location,, which has a bar at the front, and a few rooms for the memorabilia and some videos at the back, was established in 2008.

It’s a great spot. I love the fact that there is a Ramones museum in Berlin.  Entirely random, but somehow fitting in the new Berlin. You go in and get a beer and view of the place for 5 euros. And a little badge that gives you lifetime membership. Bargain!

We spent an hour or so looking around, watching the videos, and just lingering. Enjoying the memories, a beer, and the vibe. The Berlin vibe.
