DDR Museum information
This interactive museum does an entertaining job of pulling back the iron curtain on an extinct society. You'll learn how, under communism, kids were put through collective potty training, engineers earned little more than farmers, and everyone, it seems, went on nudist holidays. A highlight is a simulated ride in a Trabi (an East German car).
One section also addresses the more sinister sides of daily life, including the chronic supply shortages and surveillance by the Stasi (secret police).
