“Great Incite into Hitler's Time”
Reviewed August 7, 2014

It was interesting to learn about how Hitler convinced everyone to the point of doing what he did. We were given an audio guide so we could listen to whatever descriptions we wanted to. Leave 2-3 hours for this so that you have enough time to visit the grounds, as well. I don't recommend this for smaller kids as they'd probably get too antsy while they were waiting to move on.

“Don't miss”
Reviewed August 7, 2014

A museum concentrating on the rise and fall of the National Socialists (the Nazi Party) may not sound appealing, but this is a fascinating and objective look at an important period of German history. It pulls no punches, but neither does it wallow in the grimmer aspects of that era. Follow the museum visit with a walk around the remains of the rally grounds outside, and it will put in context the site of the (in)famous rallies we have seen on film.

Very well done! We would liked to have had more time to digest all the information that is so fully presented in the various rooms. Guided visits to the rally grounds and courtroom 600 rounded a most memorable day. We weren't sure we wanted to take this excursion, but are VERY glad we did so.

“A Must”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

Everyone who visits Nuremberg should visit this VERY interesting and informative museum on the site of one of Hitler's rally sites. It is a sobering and honest lesson on the rise of Nazism and the causes of WWII. Very well done.

“A Most Powerful & Worthwhile Place to Visit”
Reviewed August 3, 2014 via mobile

Be sure to allow 90 to 120 minutes for minimum coverage of all the exhibits. We visited here after going to the rally grounds for a short visit. Our visit here was followed by a trip to courtroom 600 where the Nuremberg trials were held. There are free washrooms in the reception area. You get an audio guide with translation in the language needed. I was told by another tourist that being able to read German was an asset since all the written exhibit explanations are in German - I was fine only knowing English. I found that in order to get through the exhibits in 90 minutes I had to choose 2 exhibits per room (there are 19 rooms). Do leave 20 minutes for Room 18 which is a video about the trials. If you are touring the courthouse and room 600 you can skip room 19 since this will be covered at the court house. I was most impressed with the rail road tracks exhibit after room 19 with the name of 60 000 Jews on individual cards. This was representation of the 6 million people who were killed senselessly. This is a most powerful and worthwhile place to visit while in Nuremberg.
