The DDR Museum is open 365 days a year, including every public holiday. The only exception to our normal opening hours is on 24 December and 31 December; on these days we close at 16.00.

Does the DDR Museum open on Mondays?

Yes it does.

Is entrance free-of-charge on a Thursday?

No. The DDR Museum does not receive any taxpayers’ money or other sources of official funding. Financing its activities entirely through visitor takings, we are unable to grant free entrance.

Can I donate objects for the collection at the Museum entrance desk?

Should you wish to make a donation, please contact the collection manager Joern Kleinhardt by telephone (030/847 123 73 - 5) or e-mail (joern.kleinhardt@ddr-museum.de). We are unable to accept donations which have not been arranged in advance.

Can I take photographs in the museum?

Yes, but only for private use. The use of photographs for any other purposes require clearance from our Press Office.

Can I follow an existing tour?

No. At present, we are only able to provide tours to pre-booked groups. We do not offer public tours due to a lack of demand. A pre-booked tour is much more affordable than you think!

How much time should I allow for a visit to the Museum?

Visitors feedback suggests that the average visitor requires around two hours to pass through the exhibition. But it's entirely up to you!
