Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

For a city like Hannover, the antiquity exhibition here was impressive. There are not that many exhibits, but the descriptions do a good job filling in what's missing so that the visitor gets a comprehensive chronology of the different ancient civilizations, especially the Egyptian one.
Furthermore, I did not expect to see mummies here, but they have them, along with plenty of information related to research done on them.

Superb little musem adjacent to Neues Rathaus.
Top floor is quite rich with artefacts, especially from Egypt and Middle East, but also from Ancient Roman period.

Great way to spend a few hours on a cold or rainy day.

Popped in while we were passing. Free entry, had a cuppa and pastry in the very little cafe. Some decent exhibits on the top floor,ancient artefacts, many of which we have seen in many other museums but saw all in an hour. We were interupted by a member of the staff who decided to give us a partly guided tour, and explain some of the history and exhibits. Not to much descripive english text. Liked however, some of the exhibits were displayed, and you had to walk through curtains to see them.
Ugly from the outside, but that is the modern front to the original building

This is a decorative arts museum to the right of the Neues Rathaus. It consists of three floors, which do not have a huge footprint/square footage. The ground is for tickets, lockers, toilets. The first is given over to posters, advertising, jewellery, etc. While the most interesting part that of Ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome are on the top floor.

Ancient Egypt is displayed in the centre of the top floor with Greece and Rome ringed around it. The Egyptian display contains a good number of reliefs, with a number of statues and smaller objects. A number of the reliefs are very fine.

Greek and Roman works consist of pottery, terracotta figures, some small but good quality bronzes, jewellery and some statues and monuments.

The works on the first floor are of less interest but do have some good art nouveau objects.

Signage in English is poor. The museum is closed on Mondays.

The building is special in itself. It is a beautiful old building surrounded by a modern shell. The museum includes art/antiquities from Egypt, the Middle East and Roman times. But also modern art including Bauhaus and Rietveld chairs. Admission is free on Friday afternoon from 2 p.m.
