I was really surprised how much our entire group enjoyed this museum. We had 7 people in our group (ages 10 to 47) and we all learned a lot. We spent two hours and could’ve spent another hour. The audio guide was a cell phone...More

Even if we were told that this place was full of propaganda speaking of today´s society, this place was mostly visited by Germans when we went, and certainly gave the sensation of the past. The fact that the museum is housed in its original spot,...More

For the history buff this is a must see. The top floor is original cells in what appears untouched condition and is bleak with bolts, key locks and electric lock barring the cell doors. One cell is sound - proofed. Materials are all presented in...More

This place is a must-visit when one is around Erfurt and interested in history, more specifically East German history. The audio tour is available for a very small surcharge (3 EUR) and very helpful. The museum/Gedenkstaette still shows one floor as if the Stasi has...More
