To stand on the ground where Gestapo and SS headquarters stood before being bombed may be all you need if you've seen any other sites in Europe on the brutality of WWII and the Nazis. The next level is to see the outside displays and work through 15 stops, with an audio guide if the museum is open. The inside has a short orientation film in English. The rest of the building has displays that work through historically with graphic photos, documents in German, including newspapers and letters. The most interesting part for me was the post-war period which explained how few Nazis were actually tried and how many were released from prison in a short time and brought back into society and even government during the reconciliation period of the 1950s.
Lots of detail--more than most can handle. It's clear that the museum is geared very much towards educating younger Germans about what happened and why.
