Probably one of the best places we visited in Berlin. Very reasonable entrance fee. Plenty to see and do. A real eye opener and very educational. Interesting to see what life was like in East Berlin. Well worth a visit

The DDR Museum is an interesting collection of information about the former East German lifestyle. I would suggest going at the quieter hours (after 4pm) as when we were there it was just a bit too busy to allow you to absorb that much information....More

We really liked the DDR Museum. It’s interesting to get a glimpse into daily life of those who lived in the east part of germany and how it differed from the west. Not very big so a visit doesn’t take to much time but is...More

Loved this place, lots of history and the little flat is great to take a look at. And you can print old recipes.

It's worth visiting this museum if you want a real insight into what it was like to live in the German Democratic Republic. Everything from what it was like to go to school, what was in the shops, the jobs and economy. It was a...More

I love Cold War history, so this museum was right up my street. Lots of information about life in East Berlin, primarily presented through audiovisual media. It's a very immersive museum - not just standing and reading writing on a wall like some places! It's...More

We called in and spent around an hour in this small museum. Very quirky, but also informative about what life was like in East Berlin, Definitely worth a visit, particularly if you have an hour to kill

Definitely Saturday at 7 p.m. is the better option with less visitors. And yes we are happy that our museum is highly recommended and the average spend is more about 2 hours.
