Holidays are coming closer. The historians in our team arenÂ´t only happy about it because of sun, beach and sea, but also because of interesting hours in the one or other museum in europeÂ´s metropolises, where you can admire, as an example, the military technology of world war I. Here are some suggestions from Parabellum and HELLCAT, with a personal judgement about the respective collection - considering the atmosphere, styling, exhibits. (++ (ingeniously), + (very good), o (good), - (acceptable), -- (weak): Heeresgeschichtliches Museum im Arsenal (Wien) URL: http://www.hgm.or.at Relevant topics: Military History of Austria. Two of five important topics are Austria-Hungary in World War I and the austrian navy (v.a. 1866-1918) Beurteilung: ++ Imperial War Museum (London) URL: http://www.iwm.org.uk Relevant topics: Military History of England in the 20th century. Many technical exhibits, rebuilded trench of World War I, artistically representation of World War I (Paintings) Beurteilung: ++ National Maritime Museum (Greenwich) URL: http://www.nmm.ac.uk Relevant topics: British shipping-history. Gigantic collection of shippaintings and -models. Beurteilung: + Royal Navy Submarine Museum (Gosport) URL: http://www.rnsubmus.co.uk Relevant topics: History of submarines. Small, but well done. Beurteilung: o MusÃ©e de lâ€™ArmÃ©e (Paris) URL: http://www.invalides.org Relevant topics: French military history (v.a. napoleonic time, but WW1, too). Very nice collection of cannons, handweapons and uniforms. Beurteilung: ++ Portsmouth Historic Dockyard (Portsmouth) URL: http://www.flagship.org.uk/welcome.html Relevant topics: British navy history. Three original historic ships: Warrior (1860), Victory (1765), Mary Rose (1510). Ingenius atmosphere, but, unfortunately, not much about the 20th century. Beurteilung: ++ Deutsches Schifffahrtsmuseum (Bremerhaven) URL: http://www.dsm.de/ Relevant topics: General german shipping-history. Main topic is civil shipping, but nevertheless well done. Some paintings, models and original exhibits of the "Kaiserliche Marine" Beurteilung: + Some more museums: In Flandern Fields Museum in Ypres Belgium. URL: http://www.inflandersfields.be Memorial de Vedun Fort Douaumont / Beinhaus von Douaumont URL: http://www.verdun-douaumont.com Historial de la grande Guerre in ChÃ¢teau de PÃ©ronne URL: http://www.historial.org Deutsches Historisches Museum Unter den Linden 2, Berlin URL: http://www.dhm.de Until 15th of August the exhibition: "The world war 1914-1918 happenings and memories" Some more references from our readers: German museum in Munich URL: http://www.deutsches-museum.de Beginnings of flight technology until 1918 Wehrgeschichtliches Museum Rastatt URL: http://www.wgm-rastatt.de A little pre-taste is what you get by these pictures from the "heeresgeschichtliche museum" in Arsenal, Wien.
