Many museums and events require you to book a free time slot in advance. Some places you can just show up and get a ticket on-site. The Museum Sunday website has a list of the museums and which ones require pre-booking. Time-slot tickets will be available 2 weeks prior to the next museum Sunday via the Museum Sunday online booking system.
The brand new Humboldt Forum in the Berliner Schloss is also offering free entry for their first 100 Days. Although their website doesn’t seem to have any bookable time-slots, I have heard from several sources that you can just show up and go in.
