Understand the history of the town, well worth a couple of hours. The only sad part is some of the historic information relating to why the town was bombed during WW2.

Original audio tour, interesting info. Impressive to see that so many inventions originate in Nuremberg. An amazing sculptured ceiling at one room, never seen something alike.

This excellent history museum is in the center of the altstadt. You start at the top with a presentation on the history of Nuremberg, and then descend through the years. Included audio guide is good.

I enjoy the game settlers of Nuremberg and so much of the exhibits here remind me of the game. Highlighted is the Merchant culture and the trade and city administration of Nuremberg.
