Really interesting to go see some of the historical past where communist party was able to brain wash and torture its own citizens. Really disturbing, but a must!

This museum is a must for people who are interested in seeing something of the remains of a very dark period in the history of Germany, to say the least. Not having to do with the Holocaust directly, this post.war bunker gives insight into pretty...More

But seeing how systematically the Communist Party brainwashed (tortured) its own citizens to a viewpoint and style of governance that the rulers wouldn't subject themselves to, can only leave you numb at the evil minds at work.

I didn't know much about the Stasi when my friend suggested we went to that museum. The place was an old base of operation for them, and there was a lot of history. To be fair, the museum isn't really big, and I don't remember...More

Good summary of the activities of the Stasi in the communist era. Eerie seeing the activities that they were up to, and the kind of mind control being leveraged on the population. Audio narratives available too. Prepare to spend the better part of a day...More

It is not the best place to learn and understand the East German suppression methods of their secret service (Stasi- Ministerium fuer Staatssicherheit). There is some technical stuff in a bunker, quite far from the clty of Leipzig. The real important historic places for that...More

The Stasi Museum was very interesting and provided information on what was going on 'behind the wall' during the Cold War. Note - the displays are all in German but you can rent Audio tours in various languages for $4 EU.
