Not as impressed as I could have been by the museum itself, more could be learned online in an hour... The setting in the crypt was very interesting though. Also I don't know how I feel about paying to see war memorials, these sort of...More

St Nikolai church is in ruins following Operation Gomorrah - the Allied bombing raids of July 194 - but the ruins speak poignantly of the horror of war. The exhibition in the crypt is stunning, with many panels describing before, during and after the raids....More
