“Interesting, well-presented historical overview at an infamous site”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

We visited in June 2014. The centre itself houses a very good exhibition outlining the rise and fall of the Nazis, as well as the role Nuremberg played during these times. Included in the entrance fee is an audio guide, which provides comprehensive information on all the exhibits. It's a fairly normal set-up here, with themed rooms taking you through the chronology of the Nazis from the 1920s through to the Nuremberg Trials. The videos around the museum were particularly good. I really liked the emphasis on Nuremberg's role in the rise of the Nazis, and it was chilling to see videos of the Nazis parading through the streets we had visited earlier in the day. You can also see the remains of all the sites the Nazis used for their rallies here, which was again interesting. Only downsides perhaps were that it took a very long time to go around the exhibit if you listen to all the audio guide information, as there is no written English translation. Also, if you already have some understanding and knowledge of this period of German history, you might find some of the exhibits and audio guide information quite basic, but the Nuremberg city and trials-related information was excellent.

“Informative and tourist friendly”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

This is a must-see while in Nuremberg. I was scared that I would not be able to really enjoy the museum because of a language barrier but headsets are provided where you can select your language and enjoy the entire museum. A plethora of information is provided on this part of history through video, picture and the actual location. Would definitely recommend going here.

Very informative and sad. While I don't condone what happened, the history behind the Nazi's and Hitler is important to know. What we saw during our visit included information not given in our history books in school. Overwhelming but worth the visit.

“Must see in nürnberg”
Reviewed 15 June 2014 via mobile

Very well set out museum, easy to navigate with audio guides in many languages.
A very somber experience and a very important place to visit if you're visiting Nuremberg. I learnt so much there.
