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

It's an interesting interactive museum. But we were expecting to get a feeling of how was life in communist East Germany. Instead , you get a feeling of how was everyday life in the 60's and 70's in just about everywhere.

An informative trip back to DDR days. For one who has seen some of the exported products of DDR in everyday use, it's a trip down the memory lane. Plenty to read, little less to touch, until you get to the apartment from East Germany....More

Fantastic catalogue of how thorough and evil the East German government was. It was geared more towards people with an American education, i.e., zero knowledge about life behind the Iron Curtain. What was fantastic about it was that it showed how nothing was beyond the...More

An interesting museum giving you lots of exhibits on what life was like in the ddr. It glossed over some of the crimes while trying to give a snapshot of everything, but it was pretty informative and trying to drive the car was fun.

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
