    The exhibits are informative and shed a tangible light over life in east Germany during the Cold War. However, the museum has a poor layout and feels overcrowded.

    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.

    This is a tourist trap. They let in so many people at once it becomes impossible to see anything. It's just two rooms stuffed with ordinary objects of the period, nothing special to see. Avoid.

    Be ready to use your hands, and don't be shy. If it's not behind a glass you can grab it. Turn on the Trabbi, and grab a meal on the restaurant outside.
