Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Lower Saxony State Museum is a museum in Hanover, Germany. It is located opposite the New City Hall. The museum comprises the State Gallery, 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. The museum's forerunner was the Museum of Art and Science, inaugurated in 1856 in the presence of George V of Hanover. Based in the present-day Hanover K nstlerhaus, 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 Neorenaissance style. The building's relief frieze, titled "Key Moments in the Evolution of Humanity," was created by the Hanoverian artist Georg Herting in partnership with Karl Gundelach and Georg K sthardt.show more
