Just entered the Museum before taking my train so I admit I didn't stay long. Large and spacious place lots of very different things that seem to be a bit randomly presented... was not too impressed, but maybe a longer and more complete visit might change this first impression. Actually visited the temporary exhibition on ground floor a bit better.... More

What a very interesting museum showing the history of Hannover in a very good and pleasant way. It is on about 3 floors with a track to follow.

Visited to avoid the rain, it was very interesting and informative. It is a well laid out museum with lots of information in English,very useful if you don't speak much German.

Great museum with some interesting features, and very cheap at only 5EUR per adult. My only criticism would be that most of the literature is written in German with no translation to English. Well worth a visit if you are stuck for something to do!

Housed on several storeys around an open quadrangle, this modern museum is situated on Pferdestrasse in the old quarter. It's within easy walking distance of the Marktplatz and the Marktkirche. With lots of natural and artificial light and excellent models, displays, pictures and artifacts, this museum traces most aspects of the long history (950+ years) of the city, including the... More

5 euros isn't much for a museum. located in the old town center, running into other historical sites on the way is nice. excellent cafes and restaurants around too. you can easily walk around in under an hour but to listen to the audio tracks and read, half a day can easily wash away. i would recommend going on a...

We love local history museums and this one has a great collection of artifacts, photos, paintings which are nicely presented. The museum stresses its connection to English royalty so we were disappointed and surprised that there was no attempt to give much information to an Anglo visitor. Numbers for the audio guide did not match the displays and the guide... More

I spent half a day here. You can get an interesting visual summary of the city. Paintings, sculptures, household furniture, industrial products and more. Definitely must see.
