The information was well presented. The magnitude of the amount of people and organization and coordination of these proceedings was amazing. While there, you were really able to gain that sense of history and making you reflect on the horror and the efforts to start to repair.

You simply must go here to reflect and remember. The exhibits are amazing. The museum will take you back to a terrible time in German history and the quest for justice after the war. The price of admission is well worth it

“An amazing sense of history”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

I knew practically nothing about the Nuremberg trials other than the high level info most people probably know. This place was excellent. It gave a run down of practically every aspect of the trials, not just the defendants and their crimes and punishment, but also how the trial ws put together and run. There's plenty of archive footage and recordings. Very well done, lots of information.

You can also sit in the actual court room, which was an incredibly atmospheric experience.

“Very Well Done”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

This museum is well done and very informative. It provides a lot of information - almost too much. But you can pick and choose what you want to hear with your audio guide. A visit to Nuremberg wouldn't be complete without a visit to the Palace of Justice.

“Thought-provoking ... but not for youngsters.”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

Decided to head here on a cold afternoon. Best way to get there is on the U1 metro line and it's five stops from Hauptbanhof - alight at Barenschanze and head west - look for the flags (hint - buy a public transport unlimited travel all day ticket at €5.10 - can be bought at Tourist Information).

Entrance is $5 including free audio guide. Access to Court 600 where the Nuremberg trials were held is not guaranteed during the week as it is still in use but I was told that it is mainly used for murders which are thankfully rare in the city. Either way, there are windows situated on the second floor in the museum that will give you a view - so you won't leave disappointed.

No cafe. Lockers (€1 or €2 Euros - returned) available for coats, etc. and recommended as the interior is quite warm. Photography allowed.

Yes, the court has been changed somewhat since 1946, but it's still worth seeing, especially when you move to the museum on the second floor and see the 'then and now' photos. The displays are very informative and detailed, leading from the post WW1 international legal system to the current day. The audio guide translates the displays word for word, even down to the individual photographs, and I estimate that to complete everything would take about two hours. For this reason, plus the detailed subject matter, I feel that young kids would get easily bored. A disgruntled and noisy toddler was a bit disruptive as everyone was quietly listening to the audio guides.

Stick with it - you don't have to read everything and I stopped before the modern-day exhibits and still left satisfied. Very good value.
