Do you ever wonder what it was like to live behind the wall in East Berlin? Well, welcome to the DDR Museum! This is not the kind of museum in which you only read and look. It is actively experienced in what it was like to live in the GDR (Democratic Republic of Germany). Here hundreds of unique artifacts belonging to Germany’s socialist past are exhibited, and visitors are encouraged to interact with the facilities. Skip the line and enter Germany’s socialist past.
Living under communism was not easy, and this museum allows you to realize it, letting you experience in first person how the Stasi control was lived, how was the television of East Germany, and how it was voted in an election ‘ attached ‘.
The experience covers well-known topics of East Berlin such as the Stasi and the Wall, as well as the daily lives of people living under the rules of the GDR. You will feel the depressing day to day as you walk through a very realistic apartment of the communist era in an anonymous high-rise building. It is not something very beautiful, but it sure is fascinating.
The museum is faithful to its commitment to offer you a complete experience: you will leave the museum through a piece of the Berlin Wall. Once abroad, you will be able to appreciate the fresh air of freedom differently.
The GDR museum has been nominated twice for the European Museum of the Year, not bad for a museum that has been open only since 2006.
