Museums and Exhibitions
World history and exciting artifacts in historical treasure chambers
The probably most classical form of utilisation with regard to the spatiality of historic buildings are museums and exhibitions. They still enjoy great popularity among young and old people and convey the history, art and culture of past centuries in many different ways.
Whether you think of a museum of local history, for history of handcraft, a collection of weapons, a museum of art, nature, religion or even thematic touring exhibitions – the thematic topics are quite different and often-times prepared in a modern and interactive way. Interesting examples are the ‘Fränkische Galerie‘ at the fortress Rosenberg in Kronach (DE), the bread museum at Fort Monostor in Komarom (HU) or the army museum and the museum of pewter figures at the fortres Kulmbach (DE).
The Castle Forchtenstein (AT) hosts Europe’s biggest private collection of weapons which was brought together by the noble family Esterhazy over the last centuries. In the Fortress Town Germersheim is the German Street Museum, the Landesmuseum Coblenz in the Fortress Ehrenbreitstein offers changing exhibitions, in the Fort Thüngen you will get to know everything about the history of the Fortress Luxembourg.
