In my last post, I had a picture of Jahrtausendturm (Millennium Tower in German) for the submission of this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge. I said while the exterior had a very interesting design, the interior was equally impressive. In this post let’s take a look at what’s in it.
When we first stepped into the building, our first impression was the interior looked bigger than we expected. Of course comparing to other bigger museum, this museum of science development can only be considered as a small to medium size establishment. However because the exhibition floors were built along the walls of the building and we could directly see the top of the tower from the ground floor, the large amount of space in the centre made us feel that the tower is very big.
The museum was full of carefully crafted exhibits to illustrate different aspects of scientific development in the human history. I think the choice of wood as the building material was a great design decision. The wooden architecture gave us a sense of being in a historical building and fitted the theme of museum very well. Were the tower built in more modern materials like steel or glass, visitors would feel like they were visiting a modern museum. Now we felt like visiting an historical scientist’s workshop.
