Experience the world behind the "Iron Curtain" and immerse yourself in the history of Germany's recent past.
After the relocation of the former DDR Museum from Radebeul to the "DVB Tower" on Albertplatz in Dresden, you will find a modern exhibition of everyday objects, facilities and organizations on an area of 1500 m².

Embark on an exciting journey through everyday life in the DDR - kindergarten, school, work, but also living, shopping, vacations, sports and leisure. In different thematic islands we show you the background of daily life in the former state of the Eastern Bloc. You will not only encounter familiar objects such as the Trabant, Spee or Nudossi. Rather, you will always discover new and unknown things in the abundance of exhibited objects.
