Museum in der Runden Ecke reviews
A bit disappointing, but interesting history if you dont know much about it. The museum is very small and old but worth a visit if DDR and Stasi interest you. more »
Museum containing Stasi artefacts in a historic building. Worth a visit, and it's free. Note that everything is in German, however. more »
A lot of information. You can easily spend a couple of hours there. Would be great if English text was added.
The museum is free and all the explainer placards are written in German only, but with Google Translate and the English audio guide this is a really interesting and informative museum. I highly recommend visiting, even if it looks pretty dingy.
