My sister and I visited here. Make sure to check the times before you go because we had to sneak in at the last minute and rush our visit. It's definitely worth a visit if you're in town. Seeing the trial courthouse was interesting but the upstairs museum really brought it to life. There's is a LOT of reading and... More

The organizers have done a very good job explaining the history of the place up to and beyond the trials. Most visitors only expect to see the court room. The museum goes well beyond the room.

In the day I was visiting it was closed, unfortunately, but it was possible to dig the external portion of it and also the covered corridor linking to the temporary cells where the the prisioners were located during the trial days.

The court room was not in use the day we visited and we were able to go inside. Quite an experience to be in a room where such historical events took place. The floor above contains the Memorial to the Nuremberg Trials - a fascinating information centre with extensive documentation of the period. Easy to reach on the U Bahn.

I visited the "Memorium Nuremberg Trials" after spending a full day at Documentation Centre & Former Nazi Party Rally Grounds. I think this sequence made me better appreciate the information presented here. Getting to this historic site is easy on the U1 subway by exiting at the Barenschanze station. I opted to visit on a Saturday based on the suggestions... More

A real historical landmark with good explanations of the who, what and why of the Nuremburg trials. Good to dedicate a couple of hours to this location.

The exhibition is very detailed with excellent English audio provided. I learnt a lot. Good toilet facilities with a friendly cafe around the corner on the main road.

The court room remains as it was almost during the Nazi era and if you join a tour you will appreciate the terrible sham trails that took place here.

We did the documentation centre yesterday and completed the picture with this museum but it was less compelling than yesterday. Audio guides translate what is written on boards but there is less variation and so board upon board of translation becomes slightly tedious. Court room 600 was open, there were three screens st the front and if busy it may... More

In Nuremberg there is proof that evil can be punished it is in Room 600 in the Nuremberg District Court. This was the room where all the war criminals were tried after the war. Photos were on the wall in the lobby, people like Hermann Göring (suicide by potassium cyanide), Rudolf Hess (life sentence), Franz von Papen (Vice-Chancellor under Hitler... More
