Lonely Planet review
This museum has lots of engaging exhibits that speak for themselves, starting with a large Foucault pendulum illustrating the principle of the Earth’s rotation, augmented by myriad artefacts assembled chronologically to tell the story of Germany’s past. It is a fascinating place, not least because of eclectic objects like the strands of hair allegedly belonging to Heinrich der Löwe and his wife Mathilde. They are in cases of silver, gold and marble, specially constructed in 1935 as part of Hitler’s propaganda offensive to present Heinrich posthumously as one of his own.
