This museum gives a great insight into life during the DDR in a very accessible way - it's quite interactive. It would be great for families, and for those looking a quick over view. It was very busy when we were there and it's a pretty small museum, so that did take away from it a bit. It's probably worth trying to suss out when the most quiet time of the day is for admission. We also done the Topography of Terror and the Stasi Museum which are both more in depth but a bit more intense. This is the perfect starting point.

Very crowded and didn't portray life in the DDR as a bad experience. I'm sure there were some bright sparks in their days as they had to make the best of a bad situation. However, life under communist Soviet rule was a disparaging experience. Not great.

Great way to get an impression of life in the GDR. Lots of information and items from every day life, but also a couple of large exhibits, like a Trabant car with a built in driving simulator and former government car. One caveat: on busy days (like the day when I was there) it's rather cramped and since lots of information is hidden behind little doors and in drawers (which can't all be opened when it's busy), you miss a lot. So pick a quiet day.

One of the best museums I've ever visited. Fairly small, but so much packed in, both in terms of artefacts, personal stories and the fascinating insight into life in the DDR. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Berlin

Loved it. Interesting, engaging exhibits. Better at quiet times, since exhibits get obscured when crowded.
