As part of a bus tour of Germany, two adults visited this museum in May and had an independent tour in English that lasted over 60 minutes. Extremely interesting storyteller (as the younger brother to the more famous Brothers Grimm), portrayed by Dr. Wolfgang Schmelzer....More

We were really looking forward to the Grimm museum but were greatly dissapointed. There was lots of information to read about the Grimm brothers and their family, and we did learn some interesting facts about their lives. However, we felt that the whole experience lacked...More

I took my 9 year old daughter who, after being given a mystery challenge sheet to fill in, was super excited to see this museum. We both found it amazing and educational, there was plenty I didn’t know about the brothers Grimm! Also as opposed...More

If you are expecting a fairy-tale museum, do not visit. The Grimm Brothers were about much more than the fairy tales they collected, and this museum is a reflection of that. As a writer and self-professed word nerd, I found this museum inspiring. To learn...More
