Close to the town hall, this museum house three different collections. The entrance ticket covers all three. On the ground floor is the Natural History collection. This is a mix of models and live exhibits. The Ethnological/Archaeological collection is on the first floor. Archaeological finds go from the development of man to Roman settlements in Germany. While the Ethnological section... More

this is a lovely museum and a great activity if only for one day/afternoon. It contain European history, a great aquarium and the attractions for the whole family. As most museums in Germany they charge entry fees, but it's quite low I believe. The Maschsee, another good Hannover attraction is only five minutes away from this ( as is the... More

Although as pointed out there is little in the way of English signage, it's not hard to figure out what you are looking at. Interesting selection of European art, a great aquarium and an extensive display of middle ages artifacts. Very pleasant cafe. If you like museums in general you will enjoy an afternoon here

All beautifully laid out and interesting. On another floor, we cam across an anthropology section which showed the progression of man, there was... More

An excellent natural history section with lots of fossils and stuffed animals and birds showing the diverse fauna of the past. Lots of time to explain things to small children. The exhibits are well laid out and not overcrowded. The art section was not so interesting, not my taste in art and boring for my son.
