Long Night of Museum at the DDR Museum

Berlin, August 21, 2019 – On the 31st of August it's time again: For the Long Night of Museums, the DDR Museum will open its doors from 6 pm to 2 am. In addition to the permanent exhibition and the current special exhibition »My Trabi«, there will be an exciting programme that does not only offer an »hands-on experience of history« but a whole lot of fun for young and old.

This year's Long Night of Museums focuses on Bauhaus. For this purpose, the collection department of the DDR Museum presents an exclusive thematic object of the month in the foyer. Throughout the whole night, visitors can also let their imagination run wild and use PEBE building blocks to create their own buildings under the motto »Bau-Haus« in the exhibition's »kindergarten room«. The results can then be shared online using the hashtag #ddrmuseum.

In addition, visitors will have the opportunity to attend various special events. At 7 pm, 9 pm and 11 pm, on a guided tour with the head of exhibition Sören Marotz, they will learn more about the DDR flat in the museum and the history of housing construction in the DDR. Visitors can also participate in the »What's this?« game starting at 6:30 pm in the second room of the museum and guess mysterious DDR items from the collection. This game takes place every hour; the last time at 00:30.

The DDR Museum cordially invites you to learn more about everyday life in the DDR during the Long Night of Museums and to experience history interactively. Only the tickets for the Long Night of Museums apply this evening, which are available in all participating museums or online.
