The book about the permanent Exhibit gives an insight about life in the bygone state, in 199 colourful pages. 66 exciting chapters with more than 200 pictures and illustrations on the subject and a few guiding objects of the permanent exhibition vividly describe everyday life in the DDR. Published in English and German.

The permanent exhibition invites the visitor to engage in an interactive fashion with the conditions of life as they existed in the former East Germany. Not presented with a chronological account, the visitor progresses through a range of themed areas examining 27 separate topics: the border, Berlin, traffi c and travel, youth, education, work, consumption, state security, construction, housing, family, the media, fashion, leisure, culture, holiday, the environment, the Party, the economy, the state, ideol-
ogy, the army, international relations, the Berlin Wall, the opposition, prison and the authorities. Every section presents original artefacts, each telling the unique story of life in the GDR.

Not merely content to present a world-beating exhibition, we at the DDR Museum place great importance on the high-quality educational services which we provide. Including guided tours through the exhibition, workshops, city tours and audiences with eyewitnesses, we take seriously our responsibilities as a public educator and ensure that they are diffused with a high level of sound scholarship. We provide tours and other services in 15 languages.
With a capacity for 50 people, our visitor centre is used for a wide range of activities including lectures, workshops, seminars, lessons, discussions and film screenings.
