    What to Expect
    Journey through time to post-WWII East Germany with an eye-opening visit to the DDR museum in Berlin. Make your way to the museum and head straight inside with your entrance ticket. Upon entering, assume the role of a berliner in the unique socialist era of 1949 to 1989, and head to the first of many elaborate exhibition spaces to witness life behind the ‘Iron Curtain.’

    The original sights and smells of the German Democratic Republic (GDR) will capture you as you wander into various replica spaces such as a perfectly reconstructed East German living room. Having a peek inside the original ‘Carat’ living room cupboard, check out the authentic kitchen appliances, and catch a few minutes of programming and propaganda on East German TV. Continue to the popular Trabant car exhibition and learn about this standard vehicle of the ‘Eastern Bloc.’ Climb aboard and travel back to the streets of East Berlin with films of everyday scenes and a virtual tour through a GDR housing estate.

    Explore the museum at your own pace, learning about the Socialist Union Party and engaging in engrossing displays such as voting in GDR election or undergoing a Stasi interrogation. At the end of your tour, exit the exhibition through the sobering hole in the Berlin Wall.

    We hear from a local person in Germany that the DDR museum is very good. We enjoyed it. The best part of it was the small car (Trabant 1.1) that has a video game screen while in the car driving. My son loved it and...More

    My daughter and I booked our tickets on-line and arranged a time slot to visit. We arrived just before our allotted time but it wouldn't let us in. The museum was quite crowded as it is not very large. It was very interesting and had...More

    This was a really interesting and engaging museum but very overcrowded. I went first thing in the morning and it was already extremely busy. There is so much to see and do in this smaller museum; however, it definitely gets overshadowed by the amount of...More

    Modern exhibition with a lot of interactivity and fun, easy information. The only downside is that they let everyone in without limits. When we got in at around lunch time the place was clearly overcrowded and it was simply not possible to enjoy it. They...More

    In this museum you have to open everyting with your hands to see it. It’s pretty annoying where there are people everywhere. The experience would be much better with less visitors. I left early because I got annoyed. What I have to admit - it...More
