The museum occupies the former site of the district headquarters of the East Germany State Security service or “Stasi”. History says, the museum was used as the shelter by the Gestapo during National Socialism. In April, 1945, just before the Second World War was coming to an end, the American troop entered into the “Runden Ecke” temporary. Later on, the house was handed over to the Soviet military administration. Today, the museum houses a permanent exhibition where precious belongings of Stasi are kept on display. Facts showing emergence of Stasi, activities of different departments of Stassi and their ideologies are preserved in this museum. You can also see the cell were the prisoners were kept during their trial.

Museum In Der Runden Ecke, Leipzig Reviews - Write a Review
If you can't read German then head into the middle of the museum and get the audio guide for your language; it's very informative. A graphically informative guide to life behind the iron curtain. A friend and I spent nearly two hours touring the museum and I'm still discussing aspect's of it with freidns now. Well worth a visit.
Interesting museum that informs about how people were impacted by the Stasi. Most explanations in German only. Definitely worth a 1 hour education visit.
Interesting snapshot of the activity and operations of the Stasi. Audioguide available in English (and other languages).
Packed with a lot of information and materials, but the exhibition can do with some improvements. There is no entrance fee, but you can rent an audioguide for 5 euros, and it's totally worth it. The audioguide comes in many different languages, and provide many details and storys, and really helped me to understand Leipzig's history during the DDR period.
Crazy crazy place. A must see. Some of the spy stuff is really bizarre.
