The museum in the rounded corner is a museum dedicated to the tidings of the east german secret police / Stasi and shows their day to day work. If you don’t understand German make sure to get an audio guide to get the explanations!

I've given this museum five stars, although it comes with a warning that while there is nothing grotesque on display, the subject matter is really quite evocative so do check with everyone in your group that this is the museum for them. Saying that, we...More

This museum is free but English audio guide is really needed as there is next to nothing written in English. That said the museum content is exhaustively detailed about the Stasi background and methods and the overthrow of the regime in 1989. However, it is...More

Very interesting! Definitely get the audioguide (English), it gives a lot of good information about the exhibits and what life was like during the Cold War in Leipzig. Highly recommend.

Entry is free to this very informative Museum but if you are a non German speaker shell out the €5 for the audio guide as it is well worth it.
