“Probably would have been a higher marking if I could understand written German.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

My main disappointment was that, although we were given free audio handsets in English to learn about the various items, there seemed a limited number of exhibits that were actually available for translation. It all seemed very spacious and showed some good models of the town; there is a section on the ground floor about WW2 and photos of the effects of our bombing raids but so little translated for us to understand.

“Can't Miss This Spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013

Relics of the Hannoverian Kings and their relationship to Queen Victoria and many other English kings are housed here. The chariot of the King of Hannover is there as is an historical overview of German history with a Hannoverian flavor. It does not take long but it can take as long as you would like. There are excellent displays of all eras of Hannover and German history. You can walk through them quickly, or you can wander slowly. Either way, you're bound to find *something* here that you will enjoy.

“Surprisingly good museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

A little tucked away in the old town, and from the outside certainly doesn't appear as though it should house such an excellent collection of German history. But this place is definitely worth a look for anyone with more than a passing interest in a fascinating country. Covering from ancient farming, through the wars, up until the 80's and beyond!
