Highlights
  • Really feel like you’re in the former communist state, immersing yourself in what 40 years of DDR rule felt like to residents
  • Open drawers and rummage through sparse cupboards to feel what life was like in Socialist Germany
  • Get interrogated by the Stasi! (There was a time where you would do anything to avoid this. Fortunately, the stakes are much lower now)
Description

This isn’t the kind of museum where you just read and look – you’re actively experiencing what it was like to live in the DDR (Deutsche Demokratische Republik). There are hundreds of unique artifacts from Germany’s Socialist past on display and visitors are encouraged to get involved. Skip the line into Germany's Socialist past.

Living under communism wasn't easy, and this museum lets you appreciate that, by experiencing Stasi surveillance firsthand, watching East German TV shows, and voting in a (rigged) election.

The experience covers well-known East Berlin topics like the Stasi and the Wall, and into the everyday life for people living by the DDR’s rules. You'll feel that bleak day-to-day as you wander a very real-feeling Communist-era apartment in an anonymous high-rise. It ain’t pretty, but it sure is fascinating.

True to their commitment to a complete experience: you exit the museum through a piece of the Berlin Wall. Outside the wall, you'll have a new appreciation for the fresh air of freedom.

The DDR Museum has twice been nominated as the European Museum of the Year - which is pretty good for a museum that's only been open since 2006!

Boring and small. Missed more personally stories about their life. Came with a 17 year and a 14 year old - they were disappointed and found it old fashioned (like they hadn’t changed anything for decades).

A really excellent exhibit--many interactive items, and lots of information. LIving in the DDR was grim but the exhibit deals with it with lots of humor too. A very worthwhile museum to see.

An excellent way to beat the long queue. We ordered online once we saw the long queue and were able to get in within 2 minutes

Sehr interessant und informativ, man kann eintauchen in das DDR Leben und für ein Museum auch besonders: man darf fast alles anfassen. Sollte man sich unbedingt anschauen.

Excellent museum but very busy. Too many people and too little space. Could not enjoy or see many of the things in it.
