It's interesting to see how buildings and structures have changed over hundreds of years. Sometimes it looks like progress, sometimes a shame. You will see both segments here and even learn about some of arguments for change.

I spent a couple of hours here. It's a small museum, but this exhibition is extraordinary. It describes what attributes a city has to make a good arrival destination for immigrants. Well thought out, with some interesting surprises. Buy the book, Making Heimat. In fact,...More
