DDR Museum (GDR Museum)

DDR Museum Berlin

The GDR (the former East Germany) was more than just Communism, the Berlin Wall and Trabis. It had its own distinct culture, admittedly dominated by political necessities and material shortages, but which nevertheless forms a part of German history. Much neglected following reunification, in recent years interest in how people actually lived in the GDR has been revived.

The DDR Museum is a private museum dedicated to exhibiting this aspect of the GDR and opened on July 15, 2006.
