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!

Are dogs permitted at the DDR Museum?

No, animals are not permitted. Exceptions are made for service and guide dogs with verification shown at the ticket desk.
