The exhibition is quite detailed, it took about 2.5 hours to go through it. Although all written displays are in German you can get an English audio-guide which covers nearly all of the written explanations. The exhibition attempts to explain the rise of Hitler to the Nuremberg Trials, with a focus on the role of the Parade Grounds and how they were used, designed and constructed. The exhibition is very powerful, and deals with its subject manner in a responsible but also engaging manner. Highly recommend for all.
There is also a walking track around the parade grounds which the sign says takes 1.5 hours, plus an extension part for another hour. There are signs everywhere documenting the route. As it was raining we just walked to the Zeppelin Field, which took about 15 minutes from where the exhibition is housed inside the partially completed 'congress hall'. The Zeppelin Field was the site of many rallies and may be familiar to you from the footage of the Americans blowing up the giant concrete Nazi cross that used to be on top of the main podium. I can't say it was an enjoyable walk, due to the rain and the absurdity of it all - but it was interesting to try and reconcile the images before us with the old footage of the rallies. I really gives you a sense of the scale of the regime. Apparently the funding to keep the buildings maintained will not be forthcoming, so go and see them before they fall down.
Entrance to the museum costs 5 Euro (May 2014). Easy to get to using public transport - their website has detailed instructions.
