This museum is free but English audio guide is really needed as there is next to nothing written in English. That said the museum content is exhaustively detailed about the Stasi background and methods and the overthrow of the regime in 1989. However, it is...More

Very interesting! Definitely get the audioguide (English), it gives a lot of good information about the exhibits and what life was like during the Cold War in Leipzig. Highly recommend.

Entry is free to this very informative Museum but if you are a non German speaker shell out the €5 for the audio guide as it is well worth it.

Somewhat informative museum set up in the former Staasi headquarters in Leipzig. Be warned though, NOTHING is in English if you don't speak German and want to know what you're looking at, you NEED to get the audio guide.
