“Museum Industriekultur - Nuremberg”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

I love car museums. So after doing the sights of Nuremberg. The Industrial Culture & School museum had some interesting cars on exhibit. On the outskirts of Nuremberg, no problem with my Nuremberg Card which gives you travel and Free entry to most of Nuremberg's attractions. The Tram line 8 to Tafelhalle was an interesting ride through the suburbs. The Tram stops outside the museum which used to be a screw factory.

One floor follows the history of public schooling, with a section on schooling under the Nazis. Downstairs to the main floor, displays cover the postal vehicles from horse wagens to WW 2. One room shows how Nuremberg built sewers and fresh water cleansing. The arrival of railways to Nuremberg featuring a model of Adler the first German locomotive. A railwayman's workshop is frozen in time circa 1900.

There is a row of pre WW1 cars leading to a street of Pubs, Schoolroom, Dentist and a workers flat above the Cycle shop. There is also a room laid out as an engineering works.

As you walk along the main floor there are bicycles and contemporary badges in display cabinets. A few pre WW2 cars and a US army Jeep. Of course there is a section on the development of Hitlers Peoples Car the Volkswagen. A cinema called Noris Cimema (Noris seems to be a famous person from Nuremberg - as 'Noris' bicycles are available all over the city centre).

Post WW2 cars are on show with inventive shapes and construction. Displays of Electric domestic appiances from water hears to televison sets.

Upstairs again and a long roof gallery of all sorts of technical machinery from Motorcycles to Typewriters, video recorders and radios to water pumps. Showing how firefighting was done through the 19 & 20th century.

When I was there in early October, there were just 2 other people visiting. A wonderful place to wander through days gone by.

“Best museum I have been to in a long time”
Reviewed March 17, 2012

I was very surprised by this museum. I expected it to be very industrial and about mechanical things (which IS the primary theme) but found it to be a much more expansive story of Nurnbergs history and that of industrial history as well. The museum covers School/Education in one portion, Bikes and motorcycles in another and then a much broader permanent exhibit on Industry in general. However, this portion goes into automobiles, appliances, computers, cinema, fabrication and so on. Even my wife, who speaks no German or is very technically inclined found it interesting and enjoyable. We easily spent 2.5 hours here without seeing every exhibit and movie.
5 Euro to enter and the staff is quite friendly. Many of the exhibits have parts that are interactive or "turn on" but you may need to ask to see it if it is a slow day (we nearly had the place to ourself).
I highly recommend this as a place to see for a good afternoon. The Strassebahn 8 stops directly in front.
