Extraordinary interesting museum and a must visit in Leipzig. Free entrance and well-thought exhibitions make us turn every time we visit the city! 10/10, thumbs up!
A must for any German that wants to remember the DDR times and not all was bad. It is a complete FREE ACCESS. Donations are welcome. It goes over three levels and even I got chills and some bit of tears in my eyes. To remember such historic event. Leipzig is rich of history and beauty.
