If you are a German speaker this is certainly interesting to get a lot of the history of the city. If you are not a German speaker then you could not get the best out of it. No audioguides were available and most of the captions on display were only in german. A few rooms only - not all -... More

The museum contents and layout was excellent and had information ranging from medevil times up to current day, however for it to be a tourist attraction the english at reception was very poor and could not really inform me of any of the displays inside. There was only german discriptions on the displays also which made it difficult to understand... More

Just entered the Museum before taking my train so I admit I didn't stay long. Large and spacious place lots of very different things that seem to be a bit randomly presented... was not too impressed, but maybe a longer and more complete visit might change this first impression. Actually visited the temporary exhibition on ground floor a bit better.... More

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.

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!

Housed on several storeys around an open quadrangle, this modern museum is situated on Pferdestrasse in the old quarter. It's within easy walking distance of the Marktplatz and the Marktkirche. With lots of natural and artificial light and excellent models, displays, pictures and artifacts, this museum traces most aspects of the long history (950+ years) of the city, including the... More
