    What to Expect
    Journey through time to post-WWII East Germany with an eye-opening visit to the DDR museum in Berlin. Make your way to the museum and head straight inside with your entrance ticket. Upon entering, assume the role of a berliner in the unique socialist era of 1949 to 1989, and head to the first of many elaborate exhibition spaces to witness life behind the ‘Iron Curtain.’

    The original sights and smells of the German Democratic Republic (GDR) will capture you as you wander into various replica spaces such as a perfectly reconstructed East German living room. Having a peek inside the original ‘Carat’ living room cupboard, check out the authentic kitchen appliances, and catch a few minutes of programming and propaganda on East German TV. Continue to the popular Trabant car exhibition and learn about this standard vehicle of the ‘Eastern Bloc.’ Climb aboard and travel back to the streets of East Berlin with films of everyday scenes and a virtual tour through a GDR housing estate.

    Explore the museum at your own pace, learning about the Socialist Union Party and engaging in engrossing displays such as voting in GDR election or undergoing a Stasi interrogation. At the end of your tour, exit the exhibition through the sobering hole in the Berlin Wall.

    A great little museum, just off of the river bank. Gave me a great insight into what it was like for the ordinary people. It also provided information about those in power and the impact of their actions. It was very busy on the day my family visited as it was during the new

    I visited the DDR museum during my time in Berlin. I booked a ticket in advance on my phone (HIGHLY RECOMMEND) and was able to skip the horrid line of people waiting in the cold for entry. I also arrived right at opening hours which I also suggest doing, this will allow you to

    Well laid out showing all aspects of life on the east od the wall. Intersting to note the East Germans "revolution" by swimming naked much to the annoyance of the authiratarian regime.

    Visited here for an insurmountable length of time, with so much fitted into quite a smallish space! Lots to see/ read and do. Complete with kitted out flat! Really brought home how fortunate not to have to wait 16 years for a car..... amongst other things that many of us take

    One of the best museums I've been to. Modernly set up, you can see everything about DDR, it has interactive drawers and cabinets, and you can even ride a trabant through East Berlin. It also has a fully furnished apartment from that time. I enjoyed every minute of it.
