Museum August Kestner, previously Kestner-Museum, is a museum in Hanover, Germany. It was founded in 1889. The museum was renamed Museum August Kestner in December 2007 to avoid confusion with the Kestnergesellschaft, a local art gallery.

Museum August Kestner is centered on the collections of August Kestner and his nephew Hermann Kestner, later followed by the collections of Friedrich Culemann and Friedrich Wilhelm von Bissing. It contains four different categories of antiquities: Ancient Egypt, Classical Antiquity, Numismatics and Handicraft.
