“Headquarters of the Nazi media machine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

On these grounds Hitler held his rallies which were filmed and drove his propaganda machine. The grounds are huge but you only visit the museum which is excellent with English Audio guides. There are may photos and short films that are very informative. Even if you think you know it all you will come from this having learned more. Definitely do not miss this.

“informative exhibition of the rise of Nazism, where it happened”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

set in the massive and incomplete Kongresshalle, twice the size of the Coluseum, the biggest bit of Hitlers mad architecture.

Modern cutting edge architectural intervention in one corner of this monstrous building creates space for a very informative and chilling display showing how Germany was seduced and taken over by a great evil, and then brought down to dust, with particular reference to Nurnberg.

Nothing very spectacular in the exhibition, mainly displays of pictures rather than artifacts. Good audio guide. But it was being there, in the actual dark heart of the third reich that really brought the message home

“A scary but wonderful exhibit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

Visiting this museum just made me quiver. The atmosphere was intimidating and the ceilings low and that was the point. There were 3 short clips about Hitler, lots of photos and newspapers from back then. It was an exhibit that didn't just show what happened during WWII but also how it started, how Hitler rose. It cost €3 for a student which was acceptable. Parking also cost €3. There was a great view of the congress hall.

Worth it!

“Worthwhile”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

Honestly, I am not a museum person, but I felt like this one was well done. There weren't any artifacts, mostly just information - but you could easily move at your own pace and were given a handheld speaker to walk around with to listen to the information in your own language. Very short walk to the Nazi Rally Grounds.

“Interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

Located in he Congress Hall, it covers the rise and fall of the Nazis well and each segment is not too long as to make it boring. I would leave at least 2 hours to do the whole thing properly. If you are familiar with the history then there is little new there. Hand held translator devices included in the price of entry. The atmosphere is great though with the unfinished Congress Hall setting the scene for the display. About 2km away are some other icons of the Nazi era including the Zeppelin Field where they had the rallies. You can drive there and free parking is available. Although a little run down and now containing football fields at one end you can still stand where Hitler did and get a sense of the history.
