Since the opening of our museum in Summer 2006, we have been counting our visitors and the number of visitors has increased every year! Last year, 493,129 people visited the museum and now we have broken last year's record again! More than half a million people from all over the world have had a look at what a big team has been very involved in for 7 years now.

For the following year many new things are planned! Tonight, the complex reconstruction of the entrance area and the museum's shop kicks off. The exhibition will still be completely open, with only minor cuts. We will inform you regularly on our blog and Facebook page!

Our own publishing house, the DDR Museum Berlin Verlag, plans to publish some interesting books this year. Our educational programmes will be expanded and there are plans for a great special exhibition in autumn.

There's gonna be much going on. Therefore, I hope we will keep you as loyal readers in 2013, too! If you have any questions or suggestions, you can contact me at pr@ddr-museum.de.
