The Landesmuseum Hannover or Niedersächsisches Landesmuseum Hannover (formerly Museum für Kunst und Wissenschaft until 1933) is the museum of Lower Saxony in Hanover, Germany. It is located opposite the New City Hall. The museum comprises the State Gallery (Landesgalerie), featuring paintings and sculptures from the Middle Ages to the 20th century, plus departments of archaeology, natural history and ethnology. The museum includes a vivarium with fish, amphibians, reptiles and arthropods.
Predecessor was the Museum of Art and Science (Museum für Kunst und Wissenschaft), inaugurated in 1856 in the presence of George V of Hanover. Based in the present-day Hanover Künstlerhaus, it was later renamed the Museum of the Province of Hanover or Provincial Museum. The museum soon ran out of space for its art collections, prompting the construction of the current building, on the edge of the Maschpark, in 1902. It was designed by Hubert Stier in a Neo-Renaissance style. The building's relief frieze, titled "Key Moments in the Evolution of Humanity" (Hauptmomente in der Entwicklung der Menschheit), was created by the Hanoverian artist Georg Herting in partnership with Karl Gundelach and Georg Küsthardt.

Perfect place to spend the day and very family-friendly. Children will love the little Aquarium with the piranhas and other exotic species, as well as the spiders, snakes and iguanas.

Big and nice museum with plenty of exhibits. There are three floors, on the first floor you can see showpieces, like bones, fossils, reconstructions of ancient animals, like dinosaurs and many aquariums with alive fish; the second floor offers visitors to familiarize with history of human(it's development, body structure and so on) on the left side; on the right side there is amazing department, dedicated to immigration in Germany; third floor includes art galleries with pictures, woodwork etc. Visitors can take photoes without flash. On the first floor there is museum shop.

This place is an excellent opportunity to know more about how human beings are started their lives from homoerectus to present. I saw many many humans and animals skeletons which from 10000's years back. Also, this museum gives how human life was started with rock and how we were civilised with articulated pictures and artificial statues. I learnt many things from here where I love history a lot. This museum has a lot of collections from allover the world particularly from Africa. The collections like skeleton, tools, weapons which were made and used Pre-human and early humans. I strongly recommend this place to know the history and new information about the humans and other things around the world.
