Lovely looking museum but visit marred by craft exhibition in every room obscuring many photos and decor. Glad it was only€5 otherwise would have felt cheated

Spread over 4 floors is the start of fine map productions place..... gathering place of patricians. The intricately carved town map is on the 4th floor is great introduction to this museum. Worth a visit!

Museum is found near the town hall an gives an interesting background into the history of Nuremberg. You start in the top floor with a city model which explains how the city has evolved over the years. Then you walk through a series of rooms in the floors below where the audio guide explains the various exhibits and history of... More

I was extremely dissapointed in this museum, first of all because it is tourist-unfriendly. the desk clerk does not speak a drop of English and the only word in English in the entire museum is the EXIT sign in the ceiling... I do not recommend this place for people who don;t speak German. Also, it is very faulty and small.... More

I'm sure this could be fascinating to some but I didn't like it. Compared to other museums in nuremberg, the audio guide is quite monotonous and the posh English accents actually made me laugh because they're so stuffy, not sure if that's their intention. The house is some interesting. The history of nuremberg I couldn't get into and it's presented... More

Unlike rather a lot of the buildings in Nuremberg, this one is in original condition - it's not had to be reconstructed. Compact, efficient and practical - you get the lift upto the fourth floor and then walk slowly down at your own pace. Interesting stuff to see and the "character" of the building ooses through. Quite easy to miss,... More

This was a spur-of-the-moment decision to go through. I wasn't expecting anything special but it really was interesting and beautiful. The only problem was we got there with just under an hour before closing and we could have spent another 30 - 45 minutes. The self-guided tour begins on the top floor with a 15 minute presentation of the history... More

Again admission to this and 5 other museums was 3 Euro the best buy in Germany. The admission comes with an audio guide (in English for me) and gives a nice story of the house the residents and the exhibits

We enjoyed this museum. The audio was included which was great. The internal staircase was wonderful, steep wide and carved. Some of the rooms have little decoration and mainly house displays pertaining to the old city, others have original highly ornate decor. Get the €7.50 ticket and visit other museums on the same day. Closes at 5pm. Expect to spend... More
