Small museum which is very crowded. The interactive aspect of the Museum was nice, but it was way too crowded to enjoy it. I got the feeling that there was way more to the ddr than the Museum actually shows. Considering the fee of 10...More

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.

of some significant transformations, as well. The
gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets
between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given
