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

    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.

    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!

    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.
