This was one of the highlights of our trip. To be in the same room where some of the most evil men in history were tried for their crimes is an amazing and chilling experience. The signage in the Courtroom 600 and the adjacent exhibit were truly riveting. This alone is worth a trip to Nurnberg.

It's a lot of text and pictures but I learned a lot about the IMT. The court room where the trials occurred was in use during my visit but you can still look in from the exhibit area. This was my favorite site in Nuremberg.

Many people come here to see the court hall no.600 to feel the atmosphere but please remember that the hall was heavily reconstructed by the US powers for the known trial and after that turned into its previous state by the Bavarian government. There are some similarities between the existing space and historical photos though. In fact, the most valuable... More

Even though the actual interior structure has changed a bit (a wall added to make the room a bit smaller and the area above the wood panels sheetrocked to enclose it a bit more), the impressiveness of the room remains. We were seated a few yards from where the infamous war criminals were questioned and judgements handed down. The gymnasium... More

Beautiful building but wish we could have stopped and gone for a tour, but it wasn't part of the driving tour.

This is the place where the WW II Nazi war criminals have been prosecuted in 1945 and 1946. Room 600 still looks pretty much the same as it did 70 years ago. The documentation on the lower floor is so interesting that you need to bring lots of time which we didn't have as we already went to the Reichsparteitagsgelaende... More

Amazing to stand 20 feet from where the infamous Nazi's were tried. The court room is set up differently but with the guide's help you can visualize the movie set you are familiar with. That along with the guide's explanations of how the prisoners were housed and guarded makes you realize what a screwed up place Germany was in those... More

The presentation of the information in the palace is superb. The trial is dissected and the different views of most of the stakeholders are presented in a condensed yet highly informative way. Take about an hour or two to go through all the information and interactive parts. If you are in Nuremburg this has to be one of the most... More

My father & I toured the museum as we look at world war 2 history. It is well done & give you sense of the trial process. We also able to see the main court room.

We visited Room 600 where the trials took place. It is a functioning court room and has been remodeled since the end of WWII but you can feel the history while sitting there. We had the advantage of a tour guide since we were on a Viking cruise.
