I thought this was a very interesting museum. While the English information is limited, it was so fascinating to see such a well preserved home. The docent was knowledgeable and explained things that didn't have English information available. I would highly recommend.

We were told about this house but since it wasn't part of the "main" attractions we almost missed it, we are glad we didn't. For only 3 Euros we learn a lot about the old times. It's fascinating to see a fully preserved house from...More

Possibly one of the most moving house tours you can ever take. To see what hardship our ancestors endured to bring us to our current civilization is humbling.

Interesting old home. Limited information on the brochure. Would have been fascinating to know more, like what some of the many implements were for, and who lived in the second-best bedroom, and the one upstairs. Were they employees? Family members? Tenants? But still, a treat...More

This is one of the only houses in the city of Rothenburg that has not had its interior modified and is like stepping back in time to a simpler age. It is filled with medieval artifacts, some related to home life and the rest to...More

Who wouldn't want to see the inside of a 1000 year old house? I love this kind of stuff, and my kids thought it was neat, but it really is a little too expensive for what you get - a self-guided tour of a home...More

It is very hard to "catch" this place open, but since we knew it we planned our visit so by the time of 2pm we will be at the museum. A little place with genuine items from the middle ages, you can really experience life...More
