If the rest of the museum is half as interesting as that display, it must be a good one.

Not all their vehicles are set up in such dioramas, but their collection is eclectic. :)

Those mannequins next to a tank is a good idea. Gives the visitor a quick and natural reference point.

Yes it is, and this exchange is illustrative of why there were so many reports of "Tiger" tanks behind every hedgerow and in every treeline.

the skirts around the PzKpfWg. III and IV made them look bigger and more boxy. The Tiger1 looked very similar. Well the hull was pretty much the same shape, just bigger. I wonder how many StuGIII with skirts have been misreported as Tigers?

Definitely sure. ;)

Edit:

The mannequins also allow the curators' creative side to be exposed. (Apologies for the Instagram filter; this was taken by my girlfriend. :))
