Would you ever think of stop the clock and slow down a little bit in a bustling city? Here at Berlin, I've found you a good place to travel into; a place that is separate from the outside world, where you could finally hear the voice from the inside you.
It was a bit difficult to find this Museum of Silence (Museum der Stille) as the entrance is quite hidden, beside you can't look in through the windows as they are all covered. All the ceiling and walls in each room are painted in red. You won't be able to hear a single noise in there. All you can do is to sit down on the bench and look at the artwork in silence alone. You could possibly hear some noises from your own breath if you tried to breathe harder.
I would say this was definitely an unusual museum experience to me. When I first entered into one of these rooms from the outside world; where it was full of traffic noises and the sounds of human speaking and birds humming, I felt like I suddenly travelled to another space in where I couldn't hear a thing. I believed I finally listened to my own voice from the inside me for a moment. I barely saw anything in there as it was too dark. I sat down and looked at the only painting hanged in front of me. The sense of silence and emptiness made me calm and relaxed, like I had never had such feeling before.
Museum of Silence opens every day from 14:00 to 19:00 except Monday. The entrance is free. So why not taking this incredible opportunity to free your inside self? You deserve a single silent moment here, all by yourself.
