The new permanent exhibition "Modern Times/Hanau 1848-1949" is now similar. The ground floor of the museum castle, dedicated to the history of the city, has been extensively turned over. But now winter is coming and with it the corona pandemic with a force that no one could have imagined.
Unworthy for a city like Hanau
It is good and right that the opening is not celebrated in a big way. But the people of Hanau can at least be happy that the department dedicated to the eventful history of Hanau is no longer living a shadowy existence. For many years, the information and exhibits about the decisive years for Hanau in the 19th and 20th centuries were presented in a loveless and boring way. This was unworthy of a city of Hanau's size and importance. New museum concepts were developed and disappeared into drawers after controversies, which were carried out mainly behind the scenes. It was high time that, thanks to public funding, a breath of fresh air and modern approaches finally entered the ground floor of the museum.Updated Date: 03 December 2021, 00:01
