    Nice museum, very interactive too. Be sure to take a ride in the trabi. You also get a discount when you are checked in on foursquare.

    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.

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

    Too many information for one visit. I like the interactive way of the museum.

    Actually fine for a first overview of life in the DDR. Very visual and interactive.

    If you have checked in before buying tickets,you can get a 2 euro discount. You have to insist that the app you have used to check in is Foursquare, otherwise they tend to say that it is not :D

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

    Be sure to take good time for your visit! I strolled around for about three hours and was totally fascinated about everything. Also prebook a guided city tour if you have the time and foresight.

    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.

    It is interesting but far too crowded to enjoy it and they kept selling tickets despite being full, not doing any effort to manage how many people are watching the exhibition at the same time

    The check in special doesn't work. They have never heard of it. Just so you know.

    Very fun museum with a lot of interactive exhibits. Not too big either so perfect if you have 2 hours to kill. Also, get 2 Euros off for checking in!

    Nice little exposition. Maybe with a little touch of Western Propaganda

    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.

    See how life was in East Germany in this fully interactive museum.

    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.

    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.

    I really liked this museum, also because of the interaction. However, lots of people in a small space isn't ideal. Eat something in the DDR restaurant afterwards to complete the experience!

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