We spent one hour in this nicely arranged museum. There are lots of interesting details and things to look at. They have built authentic looking bedrooms, living rooms etc. which show how things were in the past. The place was slightly crowded at times.

They've done a great job with the exhibits and the place itself offers lots of nostalgia as well as information for those seeking it. The souvenirs section has a lot of interesting nicknacks as well. There's also a restaurant on site! I'd definitely recommend visiting,...More

This is the East Germany Museum: life in Berlin behind the wall in the DDR from 1945-1989. It's on the riverbank opposite Museum Island. And it's interesting. The set up is slightly confusing. Some of the stuff that went on is plain crackers; others really...More

We really loved this museum! The exhibits show what life was like during the Soviet Union. We enjoyed the film showing TV ads from the 70's that showed how little the people had then. Really drove home the point to me of the difference between...More

A very small overpriced museum that superficially informs about life in the DDR... The DDR museum in Dresden is a better depiction...

DDR MUSEUM was excellent. Albeit busy and a little crowded. Sometimes a little less interaction is better. There wasn’t a lot of room in places. But loved it all the same.

The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights
like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum
Island. The central location makes this one of the
city's most expensive places to live. It is here the
oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence
of some significant transformations, as well. The

Definitely Saturday at 7 p.m. is the better option with less visitors. And yes we are happy that our museum is highly recommended and the average spend is more about 2 hours.
