  • Very informative and a nice display on the DDR. It's free and portrays a good essay on the struggles of living there and all the propaganda involved.

  • Interesting museum which showcases the recent history of Leipzig from the communist times until German unification. Some thought provoking exhibits about freedom and choices. Entry is free.
  • Extremely interesting look into the DDR history from 1945 onwards. This is a must-see for anyone in Leipzig as it is free to see the main exhibition
