The Museum in the Kulturbrauerei is a museum of contemporary German history. The permanent exhibition focuses on everyday life in the German Democratic Republic. It is located in the Kulturbrauerei building complex in Prenzlauer Berg district (Borough of Pankow) in Berlin, Germany.

The subject of the permanent exhibition presented by the Museum in the Kulturbrauerei is "Everyday life in the GDR".

The Museum in the Kulturbrauerei opened its doors for visitors in November 2013. It is located in the former Schultheiss brewery, which is now a listed site. The Foundation Haus der Geschichte der Bundesrepublik Deutschland developed this historical building for a modern museum. Admission is free.

  • A small museum packed with a lot of information, delivered in an interesting and modern way with a lot of things to look at presented in a creative way. In my pictures you can see a few examples of the ambitious interior. On top of this free of charge!
  • Interesting, smaller museum covering everyday DDR life. Free. A nice way to spend some time, count for 1-1,5 hours. The Stasi files which you can read on suspected subversives are very interesting if you understand German.
