  • Goethe's. What is a person? And, what Goethe is not, Hop On bus station nearby was just like. Admission or anything (I already forgot, € 2-4) was taken. Goethe's respect people who... Is good try?

  • The museum itself is quite poor and, like almost everything in Germany, you won't find anything if not in German. Of course the choice made by the Germans is not to point to tourism; all information and explanations in German only and people's unwillingness to help tourists struggling.

  • Imposing building, impressive exhibits, you get to see many info and exhibits that illustrate the living conditions of the Goethe time. You should have dealt first with Goethe, because the Museum is not educationally, the variety would be cluttered and confusing without prior knowledge.

  • Lovely building and staff. A number of rooms (locked) and items (in display cases, but still wrapped) unavailable, but more English-language signs than expected. Enjoyed the visit.
  • Basically non Germans are not welcome, not even English here. No translation, no explanation. Simple waste of time to get in to something buying a ticket n not appreciate the exhibits.
  • Only in German, even if I understand a little bit it's difficult to read all the papers, otherwise it's a nice palais to visit
  • If you're interested in Goethe, or simply life in the 1700s, pay this museum a visit! (Best visited with a German speaker if you are English-speaking!) The museum is housed in the Jägerhof Palace (Schloß Jägerhof - reached via tram line 707) and contains mementos, letters, object d'art, trinkets, busts, paintings and casts of statues, among others, all somehow related to Goethe and his life. His interests as an anatomist, artist and natural scientist feature as prominently as possible in addition to his work as an author, poet and statesman. There are also paintings of and letters from his contemporaries, including Schiller and Beethoven, but the collection also includes coins struck during his lifetime and a model of his house in Weimar. The upper floor of the palace also has an amazing porcelain collection, as well as period furniture and interior decor. Definitely worth visiting if you are interested in Goethe's life and the period in which he lived!
  • Beautiful museum of Goethe's life
