This place is extraordinary. I don't know what I had expected but the museum was so enlightening and objective in describing death in different cultures. I have learned a lot and will definitely go again next time I am in Kassel.

It is not for everyone. It is basically a museum about death. How other cultures deal with it. There were grave markers, different styles of vehicles associated with funerals. Dress and trinkets that go along with death. It was definitely interesting. They only have a...More
