From Wikipedia

Hitler's Museum

The Führermuseum  was an unrealized museum complex planned by Adolf Hitler for the Austrian city of Linz to display the collection of art plundered or purchased by the Nazis throughout Europe during World War II.

The plans for the Linz complex designed by Albert Speer and other architects included a monumental theatre, an opera house and an Adolf Hitler Hotel, all surrounded by huge boulevards and a parade ground.. A library would house at least 250,000 books; the museum itself would have a colonnaded facade about 500 feet (150 meters) long, in a the design paralleling that of the Haus der Deutsche Kunst already erected in Munich. It would stand on the site of the Linz railroad station, which was to be moved four kilometers to the south.
