  • 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.
