This is a smallish but very dense exhibition. A must for anyone interested in the course of and effect of the Second World War and how the world came to deal with it after wards. Give yourself time to listen to the audio examples etc

Definitely worth a visit. Could have done with headphones. Had to use the audio as telephones to your ears which was slow going.

A few years ago, I toured the Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC (a very moving experience to say the least). This tour of Courtroom 600 was like learning "The Rest of the Story". Very well presented. If you don't speak the German language, you can carry a handheld "virtual guide" in your own language. So sad a history with so... More

It's really interesting to visit the courtroom where the Nuremberg process has been taken after the war, this is a really historical valuable place, and at the upper floor there are good exibitions about the history of the process. Easy to reach by u-bahn, it just requires a short walk from the station.

The courtroom is still used to this day. The "Palace" was kept up well and the staff was helpful and spoke English. Upstairs they have a nice display that better explains matters.

If you are a casual or serious student of 20th century history then the Nurnberg Trials will rank very high as a turning point. I consider myself to be a rather dedicated student of the century and especially the events leading up to WW2 and its aftermath. The Palace of Justice survived allied bombing to provide the setting for the... More

Don't plan your trip around visiting, but this is a must for anyone visiting Nuremberg. The exhibit about the trials that took place after WWII helped explain how the Allies went out of their way to attempt to show the world that they were not seeking vengeance for the war, but how they tried to conduct as fair a trial...

The famous Courtroom 600 was where the Nuremberg Trials were held from 1945-1949 after World War II for the main Nazi Germany war criminals. It is still in use as a courtroom today for local crimes so try to visit on a Saturday or you may not be able to enter. Although you see it from windows in the high... More

A very nice exhibition. Contains lot of interesting information and documents. However, not everything seems to be relevant. Helpful and friendly staff. Good audio guide.
