You enter through the front of a regular sized house and find yourself in a larger courtyard with a childrens playground and even an interactive area for childs to take part in the museum.

In addition to exhibition pieces like weapons and seals, there were lot of models and scenery. You can see among others a monastery, an abbey from the mid 13th hundreds or a grave plant.

They had coloured maps of the northern planes, that had a lot of moors, and showed the alteration over the time.

Beside the information sheets for adults, there were smaller stickers for the young, and this one covers the toys in 1800. It says "And boys got tin soldiers", what a great match for wargamers.

A center piece in on of the upper floors, was this huge model of the Aurich palace around 1700 with the stables, the ward and gardens. Simply impressive.

I enjoyed the stay in Aurich, you can visit the city and take a look at the seights in around half a day, including the museum. A lovely city, a very nice and appealing museum - i can only recommend it if you're in Lower Saxony (maybe combining it with the tank museum in Munster or the Tactica in Hamburg).
