This museum must be done with the audio tour unless you can read German. It takes longer than the two hours we had to spend. A lot of information to take in. I felt it was worth the time we spent.

One cannot go to Nuremberg without going to the courthouse to see Room 600 where the Nuremberg Trials were held. It is still a working courtroom so access cannot always be guaranteed but there is a small museum (self-guided) tour one can take. One of the benches where the criminals sat can also be found in the exhibition.

Really good museum, but its at its best if you come for the guided tour (at 2pm I believe). Tour was very high quality, given by a gentleman clearly passionate about his work. You come away very well informed. If you come on weekends, you'll get a guaranteed viewing of the courtroom which is closed on weekdays if trials are... More

The concept is very sobering. The exhibit is very spartan and it is the message that is more so than the exhibit. The court is still active so access is not guaranteed. Nonetheless worth the trolley ride.

Felt a chill down my spine as I entered the court room-to think what monsters had sat there. Some of the court room displays were not working which was disappointing Museum was excellent

A must see but this is a very sobering experience. The exhibition is powerful and audio driven in multiple languages.

This is a sombre place, but a must if wartime history is of interest. The courtroom has undergone some changes since the Trials but videos help bring it all to life and one can feel what it must have been like. There is also much more in the rest of the building, again with sound recording in your language.

This involves a tram ride and a required tour, but it is well worth the effort. There are clear explanations and the videos make the impact immediate.

If your interested in history then this is an absolute must if you are visiting Nuremberg .The court is still used and so access may not be allowed ,we went on a Saturday and was lucky enough to get into Court 600 .The hand held sets lead you through the trial .It is rather eerie being in such a place...

What a wonderful city considering it was almost totally destroyed in the second world war. Rebuilt using original stone work.The castle is a must with views over the city. The walk down leads to the square with cafes all around. A large church and monument dominate one side, with modern shops leading to interesting side streets to walk around. There... More
