“A kind of unusual museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

This museum is interesting, creative and rather unusual, as it gives a lot of information about the building itself and about the story of the city from the Middle centuries up to 21 century. Audioguide not only gives the information, it tells the story on behalf of people, who lived in this very old building in different periods. You can imagine, what had happen in the rooms even when the interior is almost empty. Some rooms provide extra multimedia facilities upon your choice, for example, you may listen to music of 15-18 (if I remember correctly) centuries of watch for short archival films about the city.
At the ground floor for extra money you may watch the 1-hour film about the story of the city. It was also nice.

“Nice museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

I only stopped by as it was included on the Museum day ticket. There is some interesting stuff in here, including lots of war time photos of the city. This would serve well as the first stop on a day’s city exploration.

“my favorite museum in this city of brilliant history, museums and sights”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

I didn't realize what an impressive museum this was until I went through it in 2012. While it is 'billed' mostly as the only intact Renaissance burgher's home in the city, it is so much more--900 years of the city's history. Various rooms include audio or audiovisual displays to accompany the installations and there is an hour long video that is an option at the start. I recommend it, as well as another hour to see the museum itself. A number of rooms have very special paneling and ceilings--models of the city at various stages are also present, and a room of photos of the city at the end of the 1800's and after WWII. It was very informative to see how much destruction still existed in the start of the 1950's, which is not at all visible at the present time, emphasizing how much the population has done to rebuild their city.

“Interesting house and City Museum - a must to understand the history of the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

The Fembohaus is an interesting house in Nuremberg old town that serves as City Museum.
It is one of the best museums I’ve been. You receive an audio guide (free of charge) that will guide you through the museum while tells you the history of the house and of two of its former inhabitants.
The museum is very complete and all exhibits have German and English explanations.

A tip, if you pay an extra 2,5 euros (7,5 instead of just 5 euros) you will get a day ticket for almost every museum in the city (check the brochure you receive with the ticket since it contains all museums and sites covered by it – the back of the ticket only shows you 8 places but you have at least twice as much covered by this ticket).
