    Lots of objects, basic information and things to do. Felt a bit childish, though.

    Fun and informative interactive museum, a truly lovely experience. The DDR recipes at the restaurant are a nice touch

    It was interesting experience for me as USSR born guy. However I think that this place is not neutral as claimed. And I'm not idealizing DDR.

    Nice museum about life and culture of the GDR. Very interactive, reasonably informative. Usually very crowded!

    The living room & kitchen recreation is really cool. You can take the books and board games out from the shelves to have a look inside or watch original TV programs.

    The classic museum, interesting facts and things during the DDR. Avoid the place during the week end.

    a good place to learn about Germany's period of 1960-1990

    When I saw it, it was really crowded, but still really interesting. It takes more than two ours if you read everything

    This doesn't feel like a museum at all. Lots of small activities to do. It's very fun and worth checking if you have an hour

    I know. You have had enough of museums already... Though this is genuinely a very good presentation of life in the DDR. full of interactive exhibits, I loved it... And I'm not easily impressed.Go late

    Although the museum does not contain the most exciting stuff, it succeeds in providing great knowledge regarding that time not that long ago where the city was split into two.

    Interactive museum about life in East Germany. You can even "drive" a Trabi.

    One of my least favourite museums during my trip to Berlin. Far too crowded so I couldn't actually read any of the exhibits.

    Such a waste of time for £7 pp. it s so small and there is so few to see inside. I recommend everyone to go for Forum exhibition in Leipzig, it s also for free!

    A real disappointment: tiny crowded, boring, poor in contents. This story deserves much better.

    Probably one of the most interactive museums of the world, it's an amazing way to know what life was for berliners on the east side

    Silly museum in fact. DDR history deserved so much more than a superficial exhibition.

    Nice interactive exhibition, little bit overcrowded. Reduce entrance fee for Foursquare check-in (4€ instead of 7€).

    Seriously overrated museum. The "interactivity" of the exhibits is disappointing. Not one for the tourists. The locals found it fascinating and rightly so, but I left massively underwhelmed.

    Very kid oriented. Too much text and screens, not many artifacts. There were some interesting exhibits about life in the ddr.
