We found that a visit here was a must. Lots of information on the Nazi trials but to actually visit the site is inspiring. The court is still working and there is a lot of information available on site re. It's history.

Thought provoking and intelligently curated with English audio available. We were able to visit the main court room - one of the iconic locations of the 20th century

Its very interesting and well worth a trip. I consider myself a History buff but there was a lot here which was new to me. It focuses on the trials, not the wider Nazi party. You'll need about an hour and half to really appreciate it. Its close to one of the tube stations so its easy to get to.... More

We were fortunate enough to have scheduled a tour with John Jenkins for our time in Nuremburg. He is a philosopher with an incredible amount of knowledge about Hitler and the National Socialist Party. He is not long winded, he weaves an amazing recount of this era while providing so much insight. He walked us through the museum highlighting specifics,... More

My only complaint is that the audio guide is mandatory for English speakers, as most of the interpretive material is in German. I prefer to read my way through museums, not stand and listen, so it was a bit of an adjustment. Still, the material that is there is excellent, and not overwhelming in amount or presentation. I loved seeing... More

Very interesting if you take the time to listen to all the poster informations on the way. Not a big museum, but you can easily spend 1½ hour here, if you are interested in every aspect of the process. If you attend law school or something likewise this is a must, as the museum makes it clear, that the Nürnberg... More

We enjoyed the exhibit hall and getting to see courtroom 600 where the WW II trails took place. The exhibit hall is well laid out and sectioned off. There is so much to see the division of sections allows the visitor to scan or deep dive into that section of information. Many pictures and videos of the original trial, criminals... More

Enjoyed this history filled building. Learned a lot on the Nuremberg trials. Unfortunately could not get into the court room but can see it through a window.

We visited last December having been at the Christmas Market earlier in the day. It is a very long walk from city centre so take tram or underground. Also allow a couple of hours for the visit as there are films to view, audios to listen to as well as loads of exhibits and the War Crimes Courtroom where you... More

Was here with a group. Be sure to get the audio guide. Museum is excellent. Take your time here. There is a lot to take in. Once you have finished with the museum you can go down into the courtroom. It is quite an experience knowing what had gone on in this room. If you are anywhere near here you... More
