“Impressive collections of weapons and steins”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

This little place has it all...so to speak as far as the city goes. It has wonderful collections of porcelain and weapons but also has other bits and pieces of this old old city's history. It is at the far end of town on the wall and is really worth a run through if you have 1-2 hours of time. We loved the instruments (there are not a lot of them but they are fun) as well as the apothecary redo...

“Museum in ancient Dominican monastery”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

The Imperial Museum lies back-to-back with the Burg Hotel. It is (by far, I think), the most interesting museum in Rothenburg. The building itself, an ancient Dominican monastery, is worth a visit. The museum collections include baroque statues, keys and locks, porcelain, armors, ancient weapons, and musical instruments.

“Take a map and a compass”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

This museum is so spread out we got lost. To get down we had to go up and vice versa. I now know how a rabbit must feel. It is interesting and worth a visit. Hold a lot exhibits from the surrounding area.

“Interesting and worth the visit”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

There was certainly a lot to see and learn in this museum. It was well laid out and a fun part of our day. The rooms of weapons was extremely interesting.

“culture and history through local art”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

You could spend a whole day visiting all rooms, however, if you want to see the highlights, go straight to the 14th century kitchen and the fantastic Rothenburgh Passion (1494) by Martinus Schwarz. It is awesome! Different from any passion you have ever seen.
