Stasimuseum Berlin information
The former head office of the Ministry of State Security is now a museum, where you can marvel at cunningly low-tech surveillance devices (hidden in watering cans, rocks, even neckties), a prisoner transport van with teensy, lightless cells and the obsessively neat offices of Stasi chief Erich Mielke.
Other rooms introduce the ideology, rituals and institutions of GDR society. Panelling is partly in English.
