This is the city museum of Nuremberg and it is very well presented through the audio guide. The museum is housed in an old house that survived the bombing of WWII and the audio guide is narrated by the various historical figures who used to live in the house. Each person describes the rooms of the house and how they... More

This museum presents the history of the city, across ages. For us, it was a great starting point to understand better the rest of the sights, and place them in a real context. This sight can provide audio-guides in English with no additional fee required. The admission fee is 5 EUR but, being a municipal museum, for an extra 2.5... More

If you visit the museum you should definitely do the audio tour. It is very informative and makes the exhibits even more interesting. The story of the city and the house itself is told very well.

This museum provides the opportunity to both learn about the city and see inside the only original merchant's house that was left standing after WW2. Very good audio guide available in English. The photographic exhibition of the city both pre and post war was a real eye opener. The introductory film to explain the key buildings on the lovely hand... More

When visiting Nuremberg this is your first stop. The museum is close to the Imperial Castle in a very impressive old house. The best part about the museum is that it gives you a great primer to the city, its history and its many sites which you will find on your endless wonders. This is a great place to start... More

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
