Wonderful old building and some fantastic interactive displays. Really told the story of Dürer’s lif and work.

This is so cute with the red/white iconic look. Not really something I would go out of my way to see, but definitely along a path you will probably walk down anyhow. We did not go in here.

This is an amazing house where Durer lived, you can wander around. Very informative tour. Lots of rooms to explore and replicas of his wonderful works of art. A huge studio where he painted, complete with pestell and mortars where he ground colours. Kitchen and...More

Not a large 'museum' and in some ways, not really authentic, since there have been so many changes to the house over the centuries, but still very interesting. The audio guide, included in the entrance fee, is very informative and helps you get a feel...More

The audio guide does a good job explaining the life of Duer. They aren’t sure what many of the rooms were used for, as the house had many owners after Duer. It severely damaged in WWII, so you see is a rebuild of course. It...More

Museum has copies of his paintings made in the 19th century. The originals are in the art museum. The house was still interesting.

Not really what to make of this. It's a well preserved but significantly altered 15th century house that Durer lived in. Well done presentation on him but something left us flat.

Glad we visited and got to celebrate this special man. Sadly he died young,but his art lives on great art copies on display. Already been to alto pinotek in Munich and seen some originals

If you’re there on a Sat at 14:00, take the tour with Albrecht’s “wife”. She gives an hour long tour in English that is cute and brings the whole house to life in front of you.

The family home for over 20 years in the early 16th Century and lucky to avoid damage in the WW2 bombing, when 90% of Nuremberg suffered. Not to be missed if you are an art lover and Dürer fan. I was only familiar with his...More

Albrecht was very sick when he was old, and even though usually people had the toilets outside the house, because he was a well respected men they let him had his toilet in the house. I don't remember exactly why was it... More
