DDR MUSEUM BERLIN SKIP-THE-LINE TICKET
Duration: You may spend as long as you wish
Take a goosestep back in time to Soviet-controlled East Germany at the DDR Museum!
Feel the pressure of being constantly surveilled by the Stasi! Try on some DDR-issued clothing while you inspect your new apartment in a socialist Tower Block! Utopia never looked so bad.
The DDR Museum in Berlin is a fully immersive and interactive experience, making you forget that you were ever free. Silently trudge through exhibit after exhibit of drab, socialist architecture, including a cinema, prison cell, nursery, surveillance room, and interrogation room. You’ll be dreaming of hopping fences in no time!
But, it’s not all bad under Soviet control! Get behind the wheel of an original Trabant P601 for a simulated drive! What it lacks in horsepower it makes up for in its socialist aesthetic. You can also change the station on a television from the era. Five channels, nothing but propaganda!
Happily, the one divergence from the socialist mystique of the DDR Museum is that you don’t have to wait in line! So, what are you waiting for? You’re making us suspicious…

And, during a 20-minute digital presentation, you’ll travel through time while you experience its central role in history from the German Revolution, through both world wars, to the 2014 World Cup!
A separate exhibit furthers your understanding of the importance of this iconic monument. Explanations, anecdotes, and various trivia about Brandenburg Gate await those who need just a little more inside information. You can even view a stunning recreation of Nike’s head, found on top of the gate!
