Anyone interested in modern history and politics should visit; as well as the serious stuff there’s also loads of lifestyle history, including a mock up of a typical DDR flat. My only complaint is the confusing layout: there doesn’t seem to be a logical order,...More

Great museum - fully interactive so suitable for most age groups. A definite must see when in Berlin. It was very busy so possibly booking tickets online and visiting early in the day might make it better.

This is a must to visit and it was right next door to our hotel. The museum catered for all ages and it was packed with really useful information pictures and films etc. The most interesting area was the recreated tower block living area and...More

Very fun museum for a gamer such as myself. Was very pleased with the Trabi simulator and the socialist dress up games. Had a good amount of quizzes, so I was able to test my powerful intellect. Also informative.

Well worth a visit to learn about life in the East under communism. Lots to do and see especially for the young at heart, lots of hands on stuff too. For some, a real trip down memory lane.

We thought this museum was not the best value for money but it did offer some useful pointers to life in the old DDR. We left with the impression that maybe it wasn’t as bad as we had been led to believe!! Perhaps this was...More

This is not a very big museum, but an interesting one. It gives you an insight on how they started to develop the DDR, the housing, their strange concept of kindergarten and sport competition.

Good value for money. You get a feel for what it was like to live in Germany during this period. Was a little over crowded in some sections. Worth a visit

The DDR museum sets out to give you a view of East Berlin in the 60s and 70s, at the height of the segregation caused by the Berlin Wall. I liked the fact that the exhibitions were very interactive, all the information panels were behind...More

Definitely Saturday at 7 p.m. is the better option with less visitors. And yes we are happy that our museum is highly recommended and the average spend is more about 2 hours.
