The museum exposes the good, the bad and the ugly of living in GDR through three themed areas: “Public Life”; “State and Ideology” and “Life in a Tower Block”.

Its highlights include a recreated tower block apartment with a living room where you can change TV channels, use an original typewriter or try DDR clothes on. There are also surveillance and interrogation rooms where you can imagine what it is like to live under the constant control of the Stasi secret police. Another popular attraction is a simulated drive in an original Trabant P601 car. Your Expert Guide will explain all the objects and installations and share stories about the life of an ordinary citizen in East Germany.
