What To Expect
You must not miss this award-winning museum for a fun filled visit to understand life under the political leadership of the former DDR government. Get our VIP tickets and come visit anytime you want - no need to wait in line!
Whether sitting in a Trabi or rummaging through the cupboards in a recreated living room, the DDR Museum provides an engaging and varied experience. Open doors, pull down hatches, rummage through drawers: there is always something to discover, feel and learn. With countless artifacts, texts, multi-media stations and activities, passive consumption is not an option. The level of interaction offered by the exhibition is unique not just in Germany, but throughout the world. Indeed, the DDR Museum has been nominated twice as European Museum of the Year.
The permanent exhibition gives a comprehensive insight into everyday life in the German Democratic Republic (DDR in German). Ranging from the everyday routine of pioneer membership and living conditions in a high-rise tower block to the intricacies of the East German political system, the museum reveals the realities of life under the DDR: consumption and scarcity; the Berlin Wall and the Stasi; full-employment and school life; the ubiquitous Trabi and Interflug; the planned economy and the parlous state of the environment; the military and relations with the Eastern-bloc "brother states".
