This house is near the Luther House and it is worth a visit. Melanchthon reviewed/edited some of Luther's writings and was a powerful force for religious reform in his own right. The house gives his history and shows some of the period furnishings. There is...More

It was interesting to learn more about Melanchthon and his life. He was a very impressive and important figure who often gets overshadowed by Martin Luther’s Fame.

This is the house of Luther's good friend and colleague. Very interesting museum. It was set up more as a home than Luther's house. The admittance was in combination with Luther's house.

A very well laid out museum. We entered as part of the WelterBe Card (€19.50 from Tourist Information). I had not heard of Melanchthon (shame on me!) but learned a lot here. He was a great friend as supporter of Luther. The garden is also...More

This museum is really well done. There is a lot of information and it’s a nice opportunity to see the inside of the house if you’re interested in architecture. It would also be a wonderful place to visit with kids - there are interactive displays...More

This museum is very well done. It provides a great perspective of Martin Luther's contemporary who was a vital part of the reformation team. Simple displays but effective.

I wish I had a small child with me to share this museum. They had special activities for kids to do and find throughout the place. I learned so much about the reformation and even Martin Luther while here. I would like to read more...More
