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
I grew up in the early 90’s in Russia and this museum was like a flashback to childhood for me. I enjoyed it a lot.
If you want to see what it was like to live in the USSR version of Germany- this is the...More
We loved this museum, it’s a small space but it’s super rich. My 14 year old really enjoyed it. From propaganda videos on life in the DDR to interactive exhibits on espionage, interrogation as well as the model of the average DDR home, it was...More
We spent one hour in this nicely arranged museum. There are lots of interesting details and things to look at. They have built authentic looking bedrooms, living rooms etc. which show how things were in the past. The place was slightly crowded at times.
They've done a great job with the exhibits and the place itself offers lots of nostalgia as well as information for those seeking it. The souvenirs section has a lot of interesting nicknacks as well. There's also a restaurant on site!
I'd definitely recommend visiting,...More

It’s good here and informative, buts it’s quite cramped and everybody is sort of just pushed into one area all at once. I would say it is more reading than interactive but what is there is really interesting stuff.
It won’t take you long to...More
Was it the best museum I've ever brrn to?
Was it the worst?
Not even close.
The ticket line was a mess so we ended up buying online tickets while standing in line. They ended up being cheaper and faster.

This is the East Germany Museum: life in Berlin behind the wall in the DDR from 1945-1989. It's on the riverbank opposite Museum Island. And it's interesting. The set up is slightly confusing. Some of the stuff that went on is plain crackers; others really...More
We really loved this museum! The exhibits show what life was like during the Soviet Union. We enjoyed the film showing TV ads from the 70's that showed how little the people had then. Really drove home the point to me of the difference between...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.
