The old museum is worth a visit - a smaller cousin of the Neues Museum in Berlin but without its funding and extensive collection. Entry to the Rebecca Horn installation 'Konzert fur Buchenwald' which was made in 1999 for the 'European Year of Culture' is free on the same museum ticket . It is in the old tram depot on... More
