August Kestner Museum is located next to the Hannover City Hall (Neues Rathaus).
Kestner Museum was founded in 1889 but it was severly damaged in the Second World War. From 1958 to 1961 the building was changed and increased through adding a new facade around the existing structure. The outer walls consist of thousands of glass and concrete blocks.
