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.

Interesting museum about the history of East Germany. Very busy during Saturday in July, but it was easy to walk through. Good value for the money.

Really nice and informative museum. Kids enjoyed the interactive parts of the museum and they were very engaged during their stay. It can be a bit overwhelming with all the information about the history, and at least for us we were missing some structure as how to approach all of this information. However it didn’t affect our whole impression of the museum.
Very interesting museum about life in East Berlin (East Germany) post WWII. Great atmosphere with a lot of information and interactive exhibits. I personally really enjoyed the apartment set up at the end of the museum tour. So cool to see how people lived during that time inclusive of TV shows you can watch that demonstrated what East Germans could watch and what West Germans could watch. This is well worth a visit while in Berlin.
