“Balanced view of the time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013

Any other museum tells how terrible Hitler was, but doesn't teach you how he came to power (the full story). This is a very interesting place, and maps the progress made by the 3rd reich, the hows and the whys.

A must visit if in Nurnberg, easily accessed by tram from the HBF.

Doesn't cost very much to visit, and has a handheld audio guide in multiple langauges, describing every section of the tour. You do not have to rush, as the audio starts for each section when you press the button.

You can take a relaxing walk around the lake whilst here, which offers an alternative view of the congress hall.

Very interesting tour, i really learnt a lot.

“Absorbing for history buffs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

The museum consists of a very large number of small interconnected rooms that provide a huge amount of detail on the Nazi parade grounds and ceremonial buildings that were placed in or just planned for this area of Nuremberg. There's a good mix of documents, film clips, scale models and artifacts, knitted together by a portable audio guide device. It's nowhere near as dryly factual and text-heavy as most museums in Germany. There's so much to take in that it's easy to spend over two hours there if the subject matter grips you. Unlikely to appeal to kids.

“NSDAP Kongresshale”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

Excellent exhibits detailing history of the rise of National Socialism. This museum is housed in a the former Nazi Party Congress Hall. (which was never finished)

We almost missed this museum as we walked up Grosse Strasse and did not see the side entrance facing the street. There was a festival taking place between the Messe and the Congress Hall so we walked around by the lake. Which turned out to be a pleasant experience of watching the kayak club practicing there. We had gone into the open air part of the Congress Hall, which is now used as a parking lot when we saw a man on an elevated walkway outside of the building but we could not figure out how he got there. Once we found the museum we too were able to go out on the walkway.

“Very well laid out museum, thought provoking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2013

The displays were very informative with a comprehensive audio commentary. I thought it was a reflective analysis of the rallies/architecture that included enough context to support understanding (including that some particpants were there for the beer rather than the Party!) and a frank description of the horrors of the regime.

Highly recommended, a short ride from the centre of town on the tram. Allow a couple of hours to walk around the park to see the Zepplin Field.

“Fascinating, moving, outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013

Even if you think you know a lot about the history of the Nazi period, you are sure to learn something here. The free audioguide is exceptional, the building itself is a fascinating environment, and the possibility of walking around outside in what is left of the Nazi Rally grounds is thought-provoking in the extreme.
