There is a lot to read here! It's absolutely fascinating, but there are a couple of times information is repeated which could have been streamlined a little. There are two floors that are recreated as offices of the time and they are quite atmospheric; it...More

I made the mistake of not arriving on opening time, paying admission & going thru the exhibits 3 floors straight away. I decided to read the display boards outside first, which if you read it all can take a hour. There is also video screens...More

Highly recommend for anyone looking for a better understanding of the DDR. The museum is located on the sprawling campus (more than 50 acres) that was the Stasi headquarters. At one time the Stasi had nearly 9000 employees to “control” the East German population. Displays...More

Interest in 70s architecture is itself the reason to pop in. The atmosphere is very authentic f.ex. with lace curtains and pater noster -lifts. Complex also includes 2 modest cafes. In the other one it is possible to watch very interesting Die Firma - Das...More

After reading Stasiland this visit brought everything to life. The museum is in the old HQ of the stasi and has exhibits of how they went about their work. The vast scale of the stasi is shown and is quite shocking! The ministerial floor has...More

Here one learns of the intense oppression in East Germany for many years. Everyone was spied upon, and now everyone has a dossier. You'll find the huge files here as well as the torture chambers. Germany traded one horror for another. Shocking.
