From outside


Here's a look at the German-Russian Museum from outside. Although the sign is very big, this museum is actually in a very residential area and many people probably miss it. It's Wednesday again and you'll find more signs at Signs, Signs.

  1. I can see how one might miss it, but the grounds and building are lovely.

  3. It would fit into a residential area quite nicely. Nice looking building.

  4. If not for the sign and the flags, it could be mistaken for a grand house.

    1. I think it was a house at one time.

  5. It's seems like a rather strange building to be in a residential area and the gate and sign have no pizzazz at all - no wonder people don't give it a second look. It certainly is an interesting place, though.

  6. If I didn't see the sign, I'd think it was an embassy.

  7. To answer your pizza question. I got the Summer corn pizza. It's made with sweet corn, roasted chilies, cilantro and a spicy crème fraiche. This will be the last week for that pizza for the season. I may have to go again at the end of the week because it's so good. He recommended a puttanesca pizza made with calamari, rock shrimp, spicy tomato sauce, olives and fresh fennel. He showed me the finished product and it did look very good. That place really does pizza well.

  8. Thank you for supplying the link, Hal. I'm fascinated that this museum exists as it must bring back many ugly memories for the Germans who lived through the war, the splitting up of Germany and then Soviet rule. But then I would surely be one of the visitors to this museum (if I could find it) to see what was being displayed and what was being said about it. :))

    1. It's not a major museum. I think there were only three visitors or so when I was there. It was free though!!!

  9. If folks miss the sign then they need a creative sign designer. It may not need to be larger, but needs to attract your attention. Tom

  10. Though big, the sign isn't at a level that might otherwise catch the eye, making it easy to miss. It looks like a very nice building, though the toy in the backyard isn't all that pleasant.

  11. It looks like it's out in the country somewhere.

  12. Well a closed gate is also a big help.

    1. It's in Karlshorst. The neighborhood is really nice actually, although it's a bit out-of-the-way.

  14. The columns on the building remind me of a temple style.
