  • It is a pity that the explanations are in German. You can see letters, books, drawings, portraits and personal affairs of Goethe.

  • If you don't know German 4 euros just look at historical documents and art works. Not a single English information.

  • Like the time I, since all the members think articulately - except one. But the times have become all links - over, stiff one.

  • 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!
  • Lovely museum, very quite and nice place to visit.
  • Beautiful building, the color of the walls attracts touring. To see even from the outside.

  • In the Museum Goethe is the third collection on the life of Goethe between 1774 and the 1792. The collection is divided into ten sections that will be showcased manuscripts, letters, portraits and busts made by the artist.
