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

    favourite museum in berlin!

    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

    Marc G · December 14, 2015
  • Martin K.

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

    Martin Krchňák · December 7, 2015
  • Hans H.

    For sure not worth the 7 euro!

    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.

    George M. · October 18, 2015
  • Aline B.

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

    Aline Brandão · October 16, 2015
  • Jiaxin L.

    Fun museum, very hands-on. Ask for the Foursquare discount!

    Nice informative Museum !!!

    Fun interactive museum that shows the absurdity of East Germany.

  • Kimberley C.

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

    Kimberley Cook · September 3, 2015
  • Semih

    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!

    Semih · August 14, 2015
  • Alain R.

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

    Alain Ravet · June 6, 2015
  • Marina B.

    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

    Priority 1

    This museum is fab. Really interactive and engaging but with all the legit content.

    Jess Kelly · February 26, 2015
  • Mariana G.

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

    Mariana Garcia · February 25, 2015
  • Pelin D.

    great place to explore the lifestyle of socialist germans. it is a very interactive museum

    The whole history of the Democratic Republic years, awesome, a must

    Hilariously tragic. The Trabant is a great photo-op.

    Alex Dobyan · December 11, 2014
  • J. I.

    Good museum to get an idea of how things were

    J. I.G. · November 13, 2014
  • Sarah K.

    Worth it for the Trabi simulator alone. A great interactive exhibition.

    Sarah Kerton · October 28, 2014
  • Eliška K.

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

    Eliška Kubátová · October 27, 2014
  • Phat B.

    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.

    Phat Buoy · October 21, 2014
  • Christian F.

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

    Christian Fabian · October 15, 2014
  • John G.

    DDR is soooo retro

    John Glenn · October 7, 2014
  • Anwar

    Compact but very worth visiting! Very accessible for young people as well!

    Anwar · September 29, 2014
  • Chris N.

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

    Chris Natoli · September 23, 2014
  • Ben B.

    History of the DDR. Interactive displays.

    Ben Baron · September 1, 2014
  • John 忠威 Hans D.

    This a must see museum with a good insight into life in the erstwhile DDR. Gets very busy so get there early

    John 忠威 Hans Dyke🐑 · August 31, 2014

    Nice museum but a little bit too turistic

    D Zaver · August 14, 2014
  • Dave G.

    A lot of fun and very informative. Check out the Trabi simulator.

    Dave G · August 11, 2014
  • Mike R.

    Small but very cool. The best thing about this museum is that they allow you to touch and feel rather then just look and read.

    Mike Russell · July 13, 2014
  • Izabela R.

    Such a cool place!

  • Gemma G.

    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

    Gemma Grau · June 9, 2014
  • Carolina M.

    Interactive, interesting and fun museum. Good choice to learn history in a different way.

    Carolina Maiorano · June 7, 2014

    The special on 4€ is not correct! You has to pay 0.5 € extra for some strange reason....

    Peter Einarsson · March 29, 2014
  • Frank T.

    Great museum but go early to avoid it being crowded

    Frank Temmink · March 15, 2014
