Nuremberg has a lot to be proud off when it comes to its history. This museum offers a great view into the history of this town. There are also local merchants that offer their products that one can buy.

Husband and I loved this museum! The town of Nuremberg itself has so much history. There is a room that gives a film and diorama display of old Nuremberg and is offered in different languages. At first walking in I was a skeptic but after hearing so many details of the history, I really fell in love with the City. The museum itself was home to one of the richest families in Nuremberg, and the carvings on the ceilings, paintings etc and all original, which is amazing. The staff spoke great English and were very helpful. I recommend going here first before you tour the city and see the sights, it gives you a better outlook on the City and really helped me enjoy it.

Well displayed lining interiors as well as historical displays.
Closes early so allow enough time.Good audio guide in different language and buttons to press for illustrative conversations and music.
Enjoyable

This museum is interesting, creative and rather unusual, as it gives a lot of information about the building itself and about the story of the city from the Middle centuries up to 21 century. Audioguide not only gives the information, it tells the story on behalf of people, who lived in this very old building in different periods. You can imagine, what had happen in the rooms even when the interior is almost empty. Some rooms provide extra multimedia facilities upon your choice, for example, you may listen to music of 15-18 (if I remember correctly) centuries of watch for short archival films about the city.
At the ground floor for extra money you may watch the 1-hour film about the story of the city. It was also nice.

I only stopped by as it was included on the Museum day ticket. There is some interesting stuff in here, including lots of war time photos of the city. This would serve well as the first stop on a day’s city exploration.
