Museumsnacht Dresden

18:00 - 24:00



The Dresden Stasi had its branch in the villa district on the slopes of the Elbe. The Stasi detention centre, the banquet hall and many of the Stasi's workrooms have been preserved. Who worked there? How did the surveillance apparatus work? And what happened to people who ended up in custody?
