On the side of the railway, the museum has a closed facade with hardly any windows to protect the displays from natural light. The building’s north side is more open.
The high and bright foyer has semi-sheer curtains for glare protection to regulate the light.
The blackout fabrics with their high level of sound absorption ensure pleasant room acoustics in the auditorium.
