A great museum with interactive exhibits that helps you understand life in East Berlin before the fall of the wall. A must see!

The DDR Museum is a great little place, one of the few really interactive museums around. Unfortunately, everyone else also seems to know this, and so it was very busy! It did make it quite difficult to get around at times, and you did have to wait at times to see some of the exhibits - though when these include an original Trabi (or Trabant, to give it its proper name) that you can sit down in, it's worth the wait! The crowds do make it a fairly tiring trip though, so try to go at quieter times if possible - if such a thing exists!

I went there few years ago with a friend and was so satisfied with it that I went again later with my boyfriend. The museum is still very interesting, with an interactive exhibition, but maybe the good advertisement had too much success with the tourists! There was so much people that we hardly managed to saw everything! It's a place tou need to visit with enough space and time to discover the most on GDR.

A lot of things to learn, touch an try out. A modern, interactive museum and well worth seeing to learn more about this important period of Germany's history. A bit crowded (lots of things stuffed together in a relatively small area) but all in all a must when in Berlin.

This is probably a fairly unique museum. The other reviews are correct and the only reason I'm not giving 5 starts is because it's crowded. That being said, it's still worth checking out. They've packed a lot of history into a small place. I especially found the model apartment pretty cool. To paraphrase Henry Ford: it's available in any color as long as it's black. The Soviets built over 2M of these tiny apartments! And the location is great; right next to the Berliner Dome and Museum Isle. I think kids would especially enjoy it after you've dragged them through the other more "adult" type museums.
