Germanisches Nationalmuseum information
Spanning prehistory to the early 20th century, the Germanisches Nationalmuseum is the country’s most important museum of German culture. It features works by German painters and sculptors, an archaeological collection, arms and armour, musical and scientific instruments and toys. Among its many highlights is Dürer's anatomically detailed Hercules Slaying the Stymphalian Birds . The research library has over 500,000 volumes and 1500 periodicals.
At the museums entrance is the inspired Way of Human Rights , a symbolic row of 29 white concrete pillars (and one oak tree) bearing the 30 articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Each pillar is inscribed in German and, in succession, the language of peoples whose rights have been violated, with the oak representing languages not explicitly mentioned.
