“Modern and compact”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

This new museum is a very interesting place. The staff was very nice and polite. The exhibition was modern and offered plenty to see, but still seemed compact even for a short visit. Worth a visit! The museum store has a good selection of relevant literature and Brandt memorabilia.

“an interesting insight into an important man”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

I had not realised until we came upon this house by chance whilst visiting Lubeck that Willy Brandt (not his real name, but one he adopted when fleeing Nazism) was born in Lubeck and had always associated him with Berlin. Entrance to the house is free and there is a display explaining Brandt's history and significance as a world statesman. For non-German speakers all the information would be hard to grasp.

“Interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

Very interesting presentation, with audio and video support. A small, but relevant, museum store. The staff is very helpful and even managed to engage our two kids for 1/2 hour on a treasure hunt. Our kids didn´t want to leave.

“It's a house.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

If you're German it may have appeal, but it';s a pretty normal looking house to me. Lübeck certainly has more striking and compelling architecture.

“Not that impressive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

First of all, entrance is free.
Second of all, if you already know German history, then you will not be that surprised. Most of the exhibition is German history revisited.
Only thing that I found really interesting was the letter Willy Brandt had written to the American president John F. Kennedy in August 1961 after the construction the Berlin Wall.
