The top floor of the museum has a model of the Altstadt of Nuremberg and a presentation. It was very interesting to learn what an important city it was throughout history and how much was destroyed in World War II,

Great museum, especially the cinematic history of Nuremburg shown over a model of the city. Again, we were shown around briefly by a German gentleman who spoke fluent Russian and found that you need at least 2 hours to explore it in detail. We had just half an hour. I regret not having more time to look around this informative... More

Nuremberg has a lot to be proud off when it comes to its history. This museum offers a great view into the history of this town. There are also local merchants that offer their products that one can buy.

Husband and I loved this museum! The town of Nuremberg itself has so much history. There is a room that gives a film and diorama display of old Nuremberg and is offered in different languages. At first walking in I was a skeptic but after hearing so many details of the history, I really fell in love with the City.... More

This museum is interesting, creative and rather unusual, as it gives a lot of information about the building itself and about the story of the city from the Middle centuries up to 21 century. Audioguide not only gives the information, it tells the story on behalf of people, who lived in this very old building in different periods. You can... More

I only stopped by as it was included on the Museum day ticket. There is some interesting stuff in here, including lots of war time photos of the city. This would serve well as the first stop on a day’s city exploration.

I didn't realize what an impressive museum this was until I went through it in 2012. While it is 'billed' mostly as the only intact Renaissance burgher's home in the city, it is so much more--900 years of the city's history. Various rooms include audio or audiovisual displays to accompany the installations and there is an hour long video that... More

You receive an audio guide (free of charge) that will guide you through the museum while tells you the history of the house and of two of its former inhabitants. The museum is very complete and...
