Providing interactive insight into everyday life under socialism, DDR Museum is in the former governmental district of East Germany. The hands-on exhibits show how ordinary people lived in East Germany between the end of World War II and the German reunification in 1990. The displays, which include various covert listening devices, are meant to give visitors the sense of always being under surveillance. This private museum opened in 2006 and has since been nominated for several prestigious awards. Keep in mind that this relatively small site gets quite crowded. Try to visit earlier in the day to avoid masses of tourists. Arrange to visit DDR Museum and other attractions in Berlin using our Berlin day trip site .

  • Compact design of show room enables abundant storage and display of historical items. Multi-media interaction is everywhere to make the touring more impressive. Would recommend history lovers or some one who is moving to Berlin to live to this place. It is literally an express way to introduce you to the last century life of east Germany from all aspects. Reasonable pricing. 25% discount with welcome Berlin Card.
  • Museums are really not my thing but this was a really enjoyable day out. The displays made you feel like you had just gone back in time. The greatest exhibit was the driving simulator, in a real, old car, but there was a queue to use it. All in all this was a nicely operated museum and certainly gave value for money.
