The Historical Museum on the Hohe Ufer in Hanover gathers holdings on the history of the city of Hannover and the former Welf territory of today's Lower Saxony.
The museum was built in 1964-67 by the architect Dieter Oesterlen as a new building. The Beginenturm and the rest of the ducal Zeughaus were included in the place of a war block of the old town development destroyed in the war. The museum has a polygonal floor plan around a pentagonal courtyard, the striking façade shows on three floors alternately wide sandstone surfaces and narrow bands of windows and a staggering from the perspective of the northern Burgstraße. In 1991, it was rebuilt, and in 2002, a redesign of the individual departments. This concerned the Department of History on the ground floor and part of the city's history on the first floor.The text of the illuminated Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz quote on the back of the museum - a light installation by the American conceptual artist Joseph Kosuth  - reads:"There is nothing desolate, nothing barren, nothing dead in the world, no chaos, no confusion, except a seeming one, as it would seem to rule in a pond when one sees from a distance a confused movement and, so to speak, a barrage of fish. without distinguishing the fish itself "
