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
very packed. No comfort looking at the exhibits. I learned a little but bad value for money. They got a good writer/interpreter to do the information panels. If you have limited time in berlin, i would skip it.
This was an excellent museum with lots of good exhibits and lots of information - in English. Very informative and I loved the recreation of a flat in the DDR. Be aware that the museum is quite small and quite cramped and it gets very...More
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.
One of the places I wanted to visit in Berlin was the DDR museum, a museum dedicated to life in the former Deutsche Demokratische Republik or East Germany during the years 1949-1989. The museum is on one floor in a small building which hugs 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 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.
