4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

We went to this museum on a very hot day via the local tram so it was nice to go inside where it was cool - there was a restaurant but we didn't purchase any food just a bottle of water each - most essential. We had the translation audio and walked round for about an hour and a half both listening and looking at the exhibitions and eventually the courtroom - which was a real step back in time. We found this a very good account of the rise of Hitler and marveled really how he managed to dupe most of a nation - it is a part of their history which they are not, quite rightly, proud but, we thought, it was presented in a very honest and unbiased way and we learn't a lot about Hitler's reign and the suffering of the ordinary German people which, we didn't know before. Quite surprisingly kids enjoyed it too (aged 11 and 9) - only getting bored towards the end. We would recommend a visit if you enjoy recent history.

“Memorium, an interesting museum about the Nuremberg trials”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

This museum is all about the trial of NAZI criminals. The audioguide, included in the entrance fee, provides detailed information about the court room itself as well as about the attached museum. A must see, if you are interested in the history of WWII.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Great history, but its more about the building itself and its purpose and less about the actual trial itself. Its one small courtroom followed by room after room of exhibition recodings.

“visit the Nuremberg Nazi Trial Museum - outskirts of City”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

This is riveting experience documenting the entire process of post WWII trials of the Nazi leadership. The museum audio tour takes 2-3 hours on the 3rd floor and then you are treated to a visit to the "actual" courtroom where all the suspense and excitement took place in 1946.

“Closed on Holidays”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Certainly if you are visiting Nuremberg, you should visit here. Unfortunately the day I was in Nuremberg was a holiday and it is closed on holidays-just a reminder. Still moving to see the building and grounds and plaques giving information. If you cannot go in you can still look up and see the large windows of the room where the trials were held.
Must see attraction
