Visiting this museum with a local whose family was affected by the Stasi policies was a real eye opener. A really interesting insight into how the Stasi infiltrated different families and communities across Germany.

Good summary of the activities of the Stasi in the communist era. Eerie seeing the activities that they were up to, and the kind of mind control being leveraged on the population. Audio narratives available too. Prepare to spend the better part of a day...More
