#11 of 191 in Museums in Berlin
Stasi Museum offers a glimpse into the methods and workplaces of the old Stasi, East Germany's secret police. Formerly the home to one of the Cold War's most infamous institutions, these original headquarters reveal much about the old ideology. You can learn about the tactics used in spying and reconnaissance for more than 40 years. The site is a tribute now to the dissidents, nonconformists, and ordinary citizens whom the Stasi terrorized. Check the website for information regarding guided tours and special or temporary exhibits.

  • Amazing step back in time to the darker days of the twentieth century. Well presented and explained. Offices really well preserved. It's very important that the younger generations understand their freedoms and don't forget the past. The museum helped my 19 year old son understand the politics of the time and how we got where we are now. A must visit site whilst in Berlin.
  • I visited the Stasi Museum twice, and I might even go again. What impressed me most is how everything in the building is untouched. You really get a strong feeling of being there at the time. There are a lot of different items exhibited with a good detailed explanation in English and German. Translations to other languages with headphones is also available.
