  • My mother experienced the 1st attack on the post square and survived. The plastic images and scenarios touch me, so that the breath. However the historical explanations seem simple and serve ideological shipping arbitration." The young Republic of Weimaer "had to be the radical left and right help? Ebert, Scheidemann and Noske mimnermus is probably less the free basket of killer commandos, which were financed by the financial industry. And then always against the evil "second German dictatorship". It conveys the impression that the "erasure" 1955, welch inappropriate term, the destruction in their Horribleness still exceeded. If you are the 'build capacity'?, Cologne, Hamburg, Essen, Dortmund,... and their horrific results presents itself, what hateful anti-communism reflects the presentation at the Schluß.Dort the circle seems to close. The panoramic image impressed and emontionalisiert. The representations of history attest learning disabilities and criticism reduction, and expected more destruction. What a pity!

  • So a Panometer is very impressive and put one right in the action, which emanates from him. Because it is a 360 degree angle, there is a great view from all sides

  • The panoramas of Asisi are always worthwhile. Although only a statistical picture, succeeded by lighting and the acoustic backdrop to create a lively experience. This one is always how I find reasonable amount of background information. The visitors experience history instead of having to select them in long texts. Attention: the rooms have almost ambient temperature. I was especially fußkalt after an hour. Visitor parking on the premises.

  • Very very impressive. I recommend visiting to everyone. I'm interested how Great Barrier Reef looks like....
  • Gigantic panorama. Very beautiful and so many details to catch your attention for a long long time. Definitely a unique experience and more stunning then the version in Berlin.
  • Awesome museum that is different from the normal stuff out there. Really cool concept. Specially nice if you know the city!
  • There is probably nothing to see here if you're not interested in art or history of the area. All it has is the giant dome shaped wall painting of Dresden in the past which is very impressive if you appreciate art but entrance fee was too much for it.
  • Beautiful museum-theatre. We visited here in April 2015 and the panorama was Dresden right after the bombing. It was breathtaking, it looked so real!
