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

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
