This museum is so open about Germany's history in the First World War, the Second World War and the Cold War. It hides from nothing yet leaves it up to the audience to have whatever opinions they want about anything - it gives no judgements...More

I'm so glad a place like this exists. They've done a spectacular job covering the history of rigid airships using artifacts, models, and images. A good amount of the museum is devoted to the Hindenburg, and they have an amazing scale mock-up of parts of...More
