I visited before in 2014 and again this year. A very enjoyable experience. Love getting a go in the Tribant. A fascinating depiction of eastern life. Also loved the mirror you could put outfits on. Had such a laugh.

The Museum is truly informative of how life in the DDR unfolded. It allows for a good overview and a bit of a feel of how things have been. One also gets aware of the propaganda we in the West were exposed to during the...More

One of the best museums I've ever seen. Engaging, interactive, covering the topic from all possible aspects. Fun minigames. The fully furbished apartment from the seventies was fantastic. The only thing I was missing a bit is a kind of comparison with the life of...More

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
