Great place. Very well laid out with portable MP3 players that can tell you about each exhibit in English or German. They also have lockers to store you bag or jacket as you browse through the history of Hannover.

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!
