As one of the most interactive museums in the world, the DDR Museum presents life in the GDR and by doing so life in socialism. With more than 500,000 visitors each year it is one of Berlin's most visited museums and one of Germany's most visited...more
It's not that Museum's content is not interesting, but I found it a bit over-interactive. Absolutely everything there needs to be palpable, pull-out, half-hidden. All together creates chaotic impression. I wasn't sure if this should be 3 or 4 stars.
Don't miss this little interactive gem. Despite having grown up during the Cold War, we learned so much about this sad period. A must do. After your visit, take an inexpensive river boat ride and finish with some currywurst and beer.
This museum gives a very full picture of life in the former DDR and a lot of its difficulties, contradictions and complexities. It allows the visitor to participate on the walk through the exhibits by opening drawers and cabinets, playing guessing games, a ‘magic mirror’...More
We visited this on a slightly rainy day in Berlin and it was very busy - possibly because of the weather - but it was well worth the trip and just amazing to see the way the East lived and managed itself. The exhibits are...More
Having lived through a lot of this period of history I was particularly interested in visiting this museum, I was not disappointed and enjoyed finding out about the way of life of an East German! The museum is easy to find, well positioned and makes...More
A really interesting (and fun) interactive museum. The recreated DDR apartment was very well done. The museum was pretty crowded so that’s something to take into consideration if you like peace and quiet.
Worth a visit here just to see how the East Germans lived.Must say very similar to those of us in Lancashire working class area in the 60s,lol.
A number of rooms set out as it was and lots more.Theres a bedroom where when you select...More
An amazing but also sad exhibition that is fully interactive and fascinating throughout.
You can experience an interrogation a prison cell and even a home of life in East Germany during the DDR regime. My personal highlight was driving the car simulator.

The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given
way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
