Everyday necessities the visitor can find in a GDR-Konsum (a special shop) from the 1960s to the 1970s.There is original furniture on the one hand and goods in original packing on the other hand - from Tempo-Beans to apron dresses - which give an impression of this much frequented shop.
Authentically reconstructed places of young people as the own bedroom in a so-called Plattenbau (a building made of concrete slabs) and the atmosphere of a disco, bar and a restaurant convey the impression of young peoples’ daily life and leisure activities in the GDR in the 1970s and 1980s. A photo exhibition that belongs to it mirrors young peoples’ awareness of life in the GDR.
