I was very surprised by this museum. I expected it to be very industrial and about mechanical things (which IS the primary theme) but found it to be a much more expansive story of Nurnbergs history and that of industrial history as well. The museum covers School/Education in one portion, Bikes and motorcycles in another and then a much broader permanent exhibit on Industry in general. However, this portion goes into automobiles, appliances, computers, cinema, fabrication and so on. Even my wife, who speaks no German or is very technically inclined found it interesting and enjoyable. We easily spent 2.5 hours here without seeing every exhibit and movie.
5 Euro to enter and the staff is quite friendly. Many of the exhibits have parts that are interactive or "turn on" but you may need to ask to see it if it is a slow day (we nearly had the place to ourself).
I highly recommend this as a place to see for a good afternoon. The Strassebahn 8 stops directly in front.
