The Lutherhaus is very well done and informative! Allow several hours to really do this site justice.

“Luther's House”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2014

Enjoyed the historical and religious significance of Lutherhaus. There are some ongoing renovations but nothing that disturbed our tour. It was great to hear about Luther's wife Katie and all her contributions. Would definitely visit again

“A great place to learn about Martin Luther and the reformation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2014

Here you can see where Luther lived with his wife and family and can learn all about his life and the world changing events that lead to the reformation.It is a well kept and thought out museum.I came away with a detailed understanding of the events that lead to the reformation and the abuses that underlied the established church at that time.Germany and the Lutheran churches are getting ready for the 500th anniversary of the posting of the 95 theses in 2017.Because of this some of the churches are undergoing renovation and are not open.

“Fascinating, well-presented multilingual displays”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2014

Martin Luther's house, a converted monastery, has extensive artefacts and displays explaining Luther's life and significance to world religion.
Located at the end of the main street through Wittenberg, and close to the site where Luther burned the papal bull, this museum has thorough descriptions of the many exhibits in English as well as German. It also features many paintings by Lucas Cranach the elder, who was Luther's contemporary.
The entry is 6 euros for adults for exhibits covering three floors. There is an attractive wooden staircase but also good disabled access with a lift.
The well-preserved living room of Luther shows the spartan wooden benches he and his family used.
There is a book shop but in a quick look as they were closing, we could see no books in English.

“Martin Luther's House Museum Taught Me Alot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014

Martin Luther's House Museum is a former monastery where Martin Luther taught students and eventually where he came to live with his wife and family. The museum explains many of the events in Martin Luther's life and how he brought about the Reformation of the Catholic Church and the schism that brought the Lutheran Church into being.

The museum contains many pictures of Martin Luther, both good and bad. It explains the political and social atmosphere and the effect of creating a strong separation between church and state with the community collecting money to help the poor and to pay the ministers for their work in their community.

There's many books along the way, many examples of his writings, many pictures created by Cranach the Elder and the facility itself to see. This museum is very informative and many tour groups came to say prayers/mass also.
