Visit: DDR Museum, Karl-Liebknecht-Str. 1 Direkt an der Spree, opposite of Berliner Dom, 10178 Berlin Germany

Head inside the DDR Museum in central Berlin with your entrance ticket, and explore its fascinating exhibition halls at leisure. Documenting life as ein Berliner during the days of former East Germany, the museum is spread over several different exhibition spaces – each depicting a different part of life behind the so-called Iron Curtain.

Explore a reconstructed East German apartment, and walk through its typical kitchen, stopping to rummage through artifacts housed in a wall unit. An old TV will be playing in the lounge, allowing you to see the type of programs and propaganda material that was once broadcast.

One of the museum’s popular exhibitions is an old Trabant car – a popular DDR-era vehicle – that’s been set up to give a virtual tour through an East German concrete-slab housing estate. Take a seat behind the wheel and see scenes from everyday life in former East Germany played on a screen in front of you.

The areas of the museum that cover everyday life in the DDR are separated from the exhibitions about the people that created the state. Walk through a smokescreen of a bleak-looking DDR housing block that separates the two areas, and learn about the Socialist Unity Party who were in power from 1949 to 1989.

Quite superb, a must if you visit Berlin. Easy to get to if you go on the Yellow Hop on Hop bus. It provides a real insight into life as it was in the former East Germany. Set against the cost of other attractions it is really good value.
