Refuge for politicians and the Stasi -- the notorious East Geman secret police -- in case of war, the museum depicts how the Stasi worked.

I didn't know much about the Stasi when my friend suggested we went to that museum. The place was an old base of operation for them, and there was a lot of history. To be fair, the museum isn't really big, and I don't remember...More

The Stasi Museum was very interesting and provided information on what was going on 'behind the wall' during the Cold War. Note - the displays are all in German but you can rent Audio tours in various languages for $4 EU.

A fascinating reminder of a sad element of the GDR, so little trust. It is contigoius with a schools museum with some interesting recreations of classrooms - pre first world war, 1930's and 1950's. Free.
