The permanent exhibition "The Stasi - Power and Banality" is presented in German. English-speaking visitors can get an understanding of the exhibition with an audio guide. It leads visitors through the rooms of the exhibition and provides one hour of facts about the history, structure, working methods and equipment – much of it custom-made – of the Stasi. If you listen to all the information, including, for example, those about the Stasi-bunker in Machern, this expands to one and a half hours.
The project was made possible through the support of the Saxon Center for Museum Education.
