Re: In the Stasi...

Hi to all,

As promised, a few comments and pics on what has (or not) changed in the Stasi museum... ;)

Globally speaking, not a lot of changes... But, I'm sure that what is shown today might not be the definitive version of the exhibition.

Why ?

First there is still some work around the building. Not all is finalized...

Second there are, in "Haus 1", less rooms open to the visitors. And inside these, there seems to be less items displayed...
And, for example, you don't have access anymore to the jail cell...

Third, in terms of facilities, they have created some new spaces for visitors, like, for example, several cafeteria... but in places where I doubt they will remain, at least according to the present formula...

Let's pics speak... :D

Re: In the Stasi...

The building as it is nowadays. Not a lot of changes.

It is not visible on the pic, but on the pavement, they have drawn lines for parking, including coaches parking...

Re: In the Stasi...

To be noticed : the Control Post (you could see it in my Pic #3 in my first post) is no more visible.
During the refurbishment, it was exhibited in "Haus 22", the place of the temporary exhibition. Maybe it is now being restorated ? I hope it will come back...

The Entrance Hall has been very well re-done, perfectly in the spirit of the past...
The Prisoner Transport vehicle (GTW) is still there.

Re: In the Stasi...

Exhibition rooms : less to be seen, obviously...
Very "clean" and "lean" exhibitions... More focused on objects than explanation and text... Quite different that it wasd in the past with a lot of panels (german style of exhibition).

But, when I went there, there seems that some rooms were not finished... Half a floor - of the 3 floors of the building where access is permitted - was closed to visitors.

Work still on progress...

I believe this is the first time they show in "Haus 1" the destroyed and teard paper files of the Stasi... See below...

Re: In the Stasi...

Erich Mielke's office and other work rooms :

Nothing really changed except some phones that have been mixed, compared to the previous exhibition... Nothing really significant. :)

Except one thing : the death mask of Lenin that was on Mielke's desk is not here anymore. :(

I asked why. I have been told it was under restoration. It should come back... Inshallah !!!

Another change : now you can find panels with bilingual captions (German + English).
Understanding German, I personaly preferred the "old" way of information : a small booklet with the complete translations of the captions and panels that were in German only... Today, unfortunately, not a lot of information available...
