    So so
    Visited here as part of a weekend break in the hope that I would learn more about the Berlin cold war east/west split. The museum is not as interactive as advertised, none the less does contain some insightful exhibits and interesting information about the cold war. The most interesting part for me is the stage set of a flat designed to look like a flat from the 70/80's on the eastern side of the wall. Cost to get in was 9.80 euro's which isn't bad for a museum but I left feeling slightly underwhelmed, perhaps due to the size of the museum which was not as big as I thought / anticipated.

    Interesting content but too crowded for the space
    Interesting museum but the space is too small and overly crowded which detracted from the experience. There was a lot of information to take in and I enjoyed the interactive features of the museum, but there were just far too many people inside. I barely got to look at the Trabant, much less sit in it, as groups of teenagers were crowded around it the whole time. And the most interesting part of the museum (the recreated apartment) was so full of people that I could barely get a look at a few of the rooms. They should perhaps think about limiting the number of people inside at any one time. The whole experience became uncomfortable and I kind of just wanted to get out of there after a while (especially as there were people coughing and sneezing and then touching all the interactive displays..yuck..maybe masks should still be worn here). The bathrooms could be better too - one of the toilets had overflowed and this added to the slightly unhygienic feeling I got at the museum. All in all, the interesting content was unfortunately overshadowed by the cramped conditions and I left feeling like I didn't really get my money's worth.
