A couple of weeks ago, I was extremely lucky to have been given the opportunity to visit the Germanisches Nationalmuseum (@GNM_Nuernberg) in Nuremberg, Germany - a treasure of a museum, filled with artefacts from the nation's history. Here's some of the stuff I saw... /1
The Germanisches Nationalmuseum was founded in the 19th century, back when nationalist fervour drove a renewed interest in uncovering German history.
Now it has consumed a city block, including a medieval monastery! /2
The museum covers 2000+ years of German history, with things really kicking off in the Roman period.
Here, for example, is a Roman cavalry helmet found in Bavaria - typical of those worn along the forntier. /3
One of the @GNM_Nuernberg's standout pieces is the 'Heiligtum' - the casket where the most precious relics of the Holy Roman Empire were kept between being displayed. /6
Unfortunately, there were entire wings of the collection I couldn't explore! If you'd like to know more, check the link below! Hope you enjoyed that! /FIN https://www.gnm.de/en/
