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

This was our favorite tour. It starts in the attic of the home with a video that corresponds to a wooden model of the city. As each place is featured, it lights up on the model. Take the elevator to the 4th floor and then work your way down through the rooms. The story of the family is very interesting... More

located near the Hauptmarkt, this place is definitely worth a visit if you are in Nuremberg.It is value for money. It has a cool concept. It has a model of Nuremberg and it shows the history of the city when the light focuses on that part of the model. It projects the videos on the wall and you have the... More

Go there if you want to know the history of this town. Very detailed material and an unbelievable presentation of a model of the city in the last floor.

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
