Archaologisches Museum Hamburg Reviews
This has to be one of the worst archaeology museums I have ever visited in my life. It's only two small floors with a mixture of art facts and Modern Art. There is also an exhibition in the other... more »
Really excellent. A dive into the earlier history of human civilisation. While the focus lies on times long gone, other, more recent events are also dealt with. From the invention and utilisation of fire to World War II.
Really well presented museum, i thought the ground floor was great way of having your kids interact with the findings of the region. Its a bit of a cross between art displays and fun way to get into some of the exhibits. If you have a free hr or 1.5 hrs it would be well spent. It even put little smiles on my 15, 16 year olds.
