Interesting for both historically interested and other. A lot of interesting stories are being told on the boards in German and English in three levels. Being able to read is a must. Not exciting for small children, but they are welcomed. There's an elevator if...More

The reach of the Stasi in DDR was chilling and is made clear in this museum outside the city centre. Our guide Nicolas was excellent on the English speaking tour and gave us great context on the tour. The teenager was especially entranced.

Stasi Muesum is an important historical museum that makes you think what they could have done with today's technology. Almost everything has signs in English, but not all. The whole interior has a sense of East Germany. There is an outdoor exhibition that sets the...More

Great place to visit if you have any interest in the DDR and how it controlled it's people. Great place to visit if you have watched Das Lieben der Anderen (The Lives of Others) - if you haven't you really should, or even Deutschland 83....More
