GERMANY'S FUN AND UNUSUAL MUSEUMS
Germany's collection of around 6,000 museums cover everything from classical antiquities and priceless treasures, chocolate, ships and composers Bach through Wagner, to Zeppelins, and many follow the country's philosophy of sometimes using alternative unusual, or fun, methods to make different aspects of the world's culture and past accessible.
Two completely different examples, and worth a visit if you are ever in Germany, are the Potato Museum in Munich and Rothenburg's Medieval Crime Museum.
germanculture.bellaonline.com has many articles covering a wide variety of topics, and a forum:
If you have any comments, questions or topics you would like featured, it would be great to hear from you, either in the forum or by email.
