Slightly out of the centre but well worth a visit. We got the subway there and it is a few stops out from Alexanderplatz but fairly straightforward to get to. The stop to get off at is Magdalenastraze. Entry is €6 per adult and free...More

The highlight of the museum is the building itself, especially to see the old GDR elevator systems without doors. Also to see the office complex of the head of the stasi was quite something, and to imagine the conversations that went on in those rooms......More
