There’s The Shop Around the Corner, and then there’s the Museum in the ‘Round Corner’ (otherwise known as the Museum in der “Runden Ecke”) in Leipzig, Germany. Its name comes from its location; a curved corner space in a building that once was an office of the sinister East German secret police, the Stasi, whose main job was to spy on the population of the German Democratic Republic (GDR). Open since 1989, the museum displays a small exhibit of artifacts and vintage tools as well as archival files and police reports. There are old surveillance cameras, collections of confiscated personal letters, and actual Stasi uniforms. Although indeed scary, the museum’s items seem fairly quaint in today’s post-Edward Snowden world.
