DDR-Guide: A companion to the permanent exhibition

Since 2006, the interactive permanent exhibition has invited visitors to learn about everyday life in the GDR and immerse themselves in the history of the socialist state. 47 thematic modules paint a multi-layered picture of music, culture, consumption, family, equality, education, the border, ideology and the opposition. Each area features original exhibits and interactive learning stations for visitors to touch and discover.

A special highlight of the permanent exhibition is the true-to-the-original Plattenbau apartment with countless drawers and cupboards that can be opened.

The concept of "history to touch" refers not only to the exhibits, but also to the exhibition technology. In order to fully exploit the didactic possibilities of an exhibition, the DDR Museum relies on interactive multimedia applications: Futuristic technical applications such as the Trabant driving simulator, 2D animations, an interactive table, a digital mirror, (multi-)touch screen applications, motion sensors, magnetic contacts and the bone-sound loudspeakers enhance tried and tested exhibition elements such as dioramas and showcases.

The DDR Museum complements its exhibition with various educational offers: Guided tours through the museum and city tours, workshops, talks with contemporary witnesses and much more. Guided tours and additional offers are available in 12 different languages. The conference room can accommodate up to 100 people at a time for research, workshops, seminars, lessons, discussions or film screenings.

Changing small special exhibitions in the museum as well as readings, discussions or lectures in the conference room offer in-depth insights into a lost state beyond the permanent exhibition.
