Step by Step

The Museum of the German Democratic Republic, located on the banks of the River Spree, is a fascinating representation of everyday life behind the "Iron Curtain" in Berlin during the Cold War. Once inside, you can become a Berliner living on the communist side, an informer for the Stasi intelligence agency, as well as a member of a traditional family of the time.

Visitors to the GDR museum not only learn, read and watch, but also touch and listen. The aim is to experience through all the senses- if you are interested in an object in the museum, you can touch it! The museum also offers the opportunity to talk to contemporary witnesses, so you can hear the story first hand and ask any questions you may have.

The museum is accessible to everyone, regardless of age. Moreover, the museum itself recommends going as a family, bringing together more than one generation so that you can share a unique, intergenerational experience. At the same time, the exhibition offers numerous opportunities for playful interaction, ensuring that children and teenagers learn through play.

In this particular museum, there is a permanent exhibition consisting of three thematic areas: "Public Life", "State and Ideology" and "Life in a Tower Dwelling". In addition, the museum presents temporary exhibitions that rotate every few months. These temporary exhibitions serve the purpose of showing something different to the visitor each time they go, as well as continuing to educate and tell the different stories and realities of socialist Germany.

Finally, this incredible museum allows you to ride in the most manufactured and used car in the GDR during the Cold War: a Trabant P601. This way, with a state-of-the-art simulator, you will be able to drive through the residential areas of socialist Berlin, witnessing everyday situations.
