Tucked away as it is on the first floor of a shiny shopping centre, in Dresden's new town, this museum provides a rather ironic overview of daily life in the old socialist East Germany. Items are organised coherently to recreate such delights as an east...More
This small museum on the second floor of a shopping arcade was not highlighted in some of the travel guides, but we found it very interesting, well done and surprisingly empty of tourists. Located in the center of the Neustadt, a pleasant walk across the...More

I hope everyone who are interested in DDR visit here, not only...More
