Full description
Visit the DDR Museum, where the history of East Germany (often called by its German acronym, DDR, instead of the English, GDR) is made tangible. See reconstructions of DDR apartments and learn about daily life under the communist regime. The items in the museum are not hidden away in cases, but wait to be properly discovered. You can pull out drawers, open cupboards, reach inside and browse. Climb into an original Trabant, turn the ignition – and off it goes. Experience an exciting simulated voyage through the prefabricated districts accompanied by the typical Trabant noises. Turn on the television in a typical East German living-room and rifle through the Karat wall-cupboard, one of the most evocative home-furnishings of the GDR era. Smell the spices on the shelf and see the pressure-cooker on the stove. Watch news-reports sitting in an original cinema stall, or dance to Lipsi, East Germany's answer to rock-and-roll.

Since I myself still had a lot of contact with the former GDR, I saw a lot of familiar things here again. Be it the peppermint liqueur that was so popular in the GDR or the F6 brand cigarettes. The creators of the exhibition have put together many great exhibits here, which also give someone who no longer knows the GDR a good insight into the time. The exhibition could only have a little more space. It is sometimes very narrow in the rooms. Absolutely recommendable for those who are interested in the GDR and life there. Anyway, we really liked it.

The location of the museum was central. The locales are a bit cramped and it was very crowded at the time of the visit. The lay-out of the exhibition (including texts) was not that clear, although the contents were very interesting. The replica of a typical block apartment was the best part of the exhibition.

it's a really fun museum, there is a lot of original items from the times, kept in very good state - so you can move back in time a little. should be very interesting for younger people or some older that did not experience communist propaganda. and the cherry on top, driving the trabi!
