Fascinating History
Aug 2020 • Couples
We made a point of visiting this museum during our short stay on Rugen and so glad we did so. The history behind the concept of the architecture and its uses and controversy over the years is interesting. The scale of the building is impressive and it certainly makes you think about its past and potential future. My German is very rusty, however there is handout literature in English in the museum and the video has English subtitles. I thoroughly recommend the video for an overview of the site.

May not worth a fee
Sep 2019 • Couples
As a non-German speaker we found this small, cramped museum is not quite worth our time and money to visit. Its €6 a person fee to see four rooms full with presentations only in German. We guess it explains the history of Nazi and why it ambitiously built this giant resort complex in Prora. The buildings themselves are nothing to see inside and most of th now are currently owned and turned into new residential resort to sell. Hence you are not permitted to enter. Only outside when you walk to the seashore you will see the remnants of Nazi works.

May 2019 • Family
An interesting museum, and I particularly enjoyed (if that is the right word?) the extensive section on propaganda and the mass-psychosis that led to the masses no longer questioning the orders of the führer.
My German isn't excellent so I struggled a little since there is no information in English or other languages, however I don't feel you can complain about information being in the native language when abroad.
The enormity of the complex, which Hitler planned as summer recreation for those of the proper Aryan race, is worth spending a moment reflecting over.

Interesting museum.

If you are interested in German history, then you should enjoy this museum. Despite appearing under-resourced and a bit disorganised do not detract from the interesting displays/exhibits.
Easy to combine with a trip to the nearby Tree-top walk, and adjacent beach.

Me and a couple of families went the but couldn't find any parking. After driving around the area for 1-2 hours we left!

So if you go by foot it probably will be good but if you go by car then don't.

Interesting History
Jul 2017
Took us awhile to find our way into the area, a lot of construction going on in the area and we tried three different access points before actually finding where we needed to be. Be prepared to pay for parking, all the parking areas are pay parking. if you are walking or on bicycle no trouble at all. The history behind Prora is interesting and it kinda gave me an eerie feeling, but I loved the fact that I got to see it.

History as it was and will become
Jul 2017 • Family
We parked at the end of building #1 near the beach and walked along the new buildings to the museum about 1.5km one way. There is a small paid lot just off the main road. The walk allowed us to see how they have renovated this colossal national socialist complex built in the 1930s. As you walk along there are a few (and I suspect more will open as time goes on) small stores and restaurants as well as a hotel already in place in the finished buildings to stop at if you wish. The museum at the end of the walk and in the building not yet renovated. While most of it is in german language there is a 33 minute video with english subtitles on the top floor. Would suggest you go and see it first as it gives you a good idea what happened in this place so long ago. Once done you can view some of the photos and piece together the history based on what you saw in the video even if you cant understand german. This museum left me with an feeling of the suffering of the past and appreciation of what gentrification will do to it. I hope they save this for more people to experience in the future and we don't lose the ability to see the errors of the past.

History of Prora and the Third Reich
Oct 2016 • Couples
Very interesting documentation of the history of this huge resort built just before World War II by the Nazi regime for the German masses. Lots of facts are presented that are not commonly known. Also excellent movie footage of the construction of the building. Well worth a visit.

Tip: I you want to understand the site go here
May 2017 • Couples
Excellent model of the complex and 30 minute film with English subtitles will explain the site. Lots of boards mostly in German and a Cafe with money off for visitors. There are loads of museums in the area this is the one you need to visit if you want the history of the complex. Don't be put off by the title Dokumentationszentrum this is a museum.

Once you have visited the centre you need to head east away from the building and go round it to get to the sea.
