As I lived in the eastern part of Europe until 2001, this visit was a confirmation that life in the DDR was very similar to Romania. Luckily we speak German so we could understand all commentaries and explanations. It is a good thing for the younger generation to go visit.

I really appreciated my visit, except for one thing: it is impossible for non-german people to understand the short explanations. It would need to be translated so that everyone can better appreciate the visit!

Have a great interest in the DDR and so was looking forward to this visit, was a little disappointed as it seems so cluttered, each room has a theme but they have tried to incorporate too much, the living room and bedroom look so full you know no one would have lived like that. Still it covers just about everything... More
