This is not a museum to be rushed through, as it explores history from 1918 to the present day in engrossing and thought-provoking exhibits. It puts the 20th century in context by starting with the end of the First World War, leading to the horrors of the Second World War and beyond to the Cold War and the Berlin Wall. Civilian stories are told in heartbreaking detail, along with tales of courage and ingenuity of Allied soldiers. Not surprisingly, a large exhibition is dedicated to the D-Day landings, as well as the reopening of the headquarters used by German General Richter during the war. The museum’s café is reasonably priced and a good spot to relax in between exhibitions.
