I think this museum would appeal most to history buffs and those who already know a bit about East German and Stasi history. As a museum, it's not very interactive or designed for people who aren't already interested in the topic. However, what they do...More

Step 1: Watch The excellent film: "The Lives of Others". Step 2: Go to museum. It's an unbelievable thing to be able to be inside Mielke's office. For just 6 Euro, this is definitely worth a visit.

I would really recommend visiting the Stasi museum. The entry charge is very reasonable - for students it is only 4,50 euros each and I think around 6 euros normally. The museum is set out in the actual Stasi building and in fact the middle...More
