We really enjoyed this beautiful house, now a Stadtmuseum, with the audio guide. The self guided tour starts at the forth floor where you see an excellent wooden model of Nurnberg. You can listen to the audio guide as different houses, churches and castle light up. It was really informative. The rest of the house had different displays and information... More

The museum is great but during the Christmas Market there are craftsmen selling stuff on all floors. A nice place to hang out in snotty weather but kind of like a Turkish Rug Market after a while. No peace and quiet here...which is a shame because a lot of the displays were high quality.

We went here in December during the christmas markets and were surprised to find people selling stuff at each floor! I didn't quite understand what were they trying to do inside a museum. We got tired of too many vendors and very artefacts and left soon!

This helps understand the city's history, but beware, if there is a craft fair on ( as was when I went ), as it limits the ability to see the contents. also, the acclaimed multimedia show to tell the story was closed. I felt rather cheated, which is a shame, given what is on offer.

I wanted to visit it. Once there, the place was full of people selling things. I suppose it's all part of the Christmas celebrations. But come on now. They can do it somewhere else. Didn't like it to be honest. Couldn't really appreciate the building and it's history.

Thisa is so easy to walk to and very near the center of the city area. Each room brings more history and the workmanship of the once home shows how people with wealth lived so many years ago. The plaster ceiling room is our favorite and the art on display is so very interesting...you will learn how many actual items... More

A good example of a typical house for rich Nuremberg inhabitants, in the top floor there is a good information about the town.

This is an excellent museum about the history of the city located in a lovely old town house which I think was the only one to survive the war intact. You get an audio tour included and the day we went we had the place to ourselves. If you pay a little more you get a ticket which entitles you... More

This is one of the few places in old Nurnberg that was not destroyed by the bombing. In fact, it was the only house left standing. It is very interesting to see how wealthy people in Nurnberg. The audio tour is quite interesting, taking you back several generations. It is definitely worth a visit when you are in.Nurnberg/

This one starts on the top floor with a model of the city and description of the changes through the years. We heard it in German, but they probably can do it in English for you. Each of the lower floors follows one in habitant of the house and the history of the time. Very well done. There was a... More
