  • Our visit to the Museum began exactly with the set. I was with an exchange student on the road to show her the city. She was new to Hall and curious. I told her about the NEBRA sky disk and offered to visit her at the Museum. Through the audio guide, you get to the information-rich conditions of description of makes it even more info, what's worth a visit in any case. I was there often and will find even a couple of times then during my study time.

  • Who has never seen it, should visit DIA absolutely at the Museum of the NEBRA sky disk. Otherwise, I'm very much in the special exhibitions. In terms of content and also visually a treat. An unnecessary shortcoming of this beautiful Museum: It houses something so internationally appealing as the NEBRA sky disk and has no way to the card payment. That is really outdated. A family of four would get after joining perhaps more in the Café or something in the shop and need to pack before extra cash. This is an unnecessary risk for stranger that maybe extra have must continue travelling on something and then first locate the nearest branch of the Bank when they insert too little. During the last visit, I had to pump to my friend, because I had only five euro cash and have not reckoned with the situation. Previously, I had paid always cash and did not know that it is the only way of payment.

  • The NEBRA sky disk is the most famous object in the collection. You would have dispensed with the many nude images of stone age people better. Finally, children look at the exhibitions. That's why a star deduction.
