Full description
Visit the DDR Museum, where the history of East Germany (often called by its German acronym, DDR, instead of the English, GDR) is made tangible. See reconstructions of DDR apartments and learn about daily life under the communist regime. The items in the museum are not hidden away in cases, but wait to be properly discovered. You can pull out drawers, open cupboards, reach inside and browse. Climb into an original Trabant, turn the ignition – and off it goes. Experience an exciting simulated voyage through the prefabricated districts accompanied by the typical Trabant noises. Turn on the television in a typical East German living-room and rifle through the Karat wall-cupboard, one of the most evocative home-furnishings of the GDR era. Smell the spices on the shelf and see the pressure-cooker on the stove. Watch news-reports sitting in an original cinema stall, or dance to Lipsi, East Germany's answer to rock-and-roll.

It was like traveling back in time to my childhood. Really great ! Very clear representation of what it was like in the GDR at the time. The insight into a typical apartment and being able to sit in a Trabi was particularly successful. A "must" when visiting Berlin. Highly recommended.

Interesting, it tells very well, but it is too long, but I understand that there is no way to summarize the horror and destruction they managed to do in 4 years. This exposure has to be perpetuated so that we can end leaders like Jair Bolsonaro and Donald Trump, for example, who follow Hitler's barbarism.

All in all, we found the museum super interesting! An apartment has even been shown as families lived in the former GDR, and also a kindergarten. One could rummage through the drawers and read the course of history. Even the mini-movie was very good. The Trabi couldn't be missing either. Unfortunately, in general it was a pity that the museum was getting fuller and fuller, so that you didn't have the opportunity to look at everything in peace. You were pushed aside because everyone wanted to see the same thing at the moment. The listening room was also occupied by children because they didn't really know what to do with the museum and the children wanted to be kept busy. Even after asking if you could look at it yourself, there was no reaction from the parents either. It is a pity that one is exposed to annoyances. I will look at the museum again in the hope that it is not too crowded.
