  • After having studied Thomas Mann for A Level German in the 1980s, it was interesting to visit the house. There is an entrance fee of EUR 7.00. The exhibition is on several floors and needs at least tw...  more »

  • Didn't get the museum. You have to walk a certain way and read a lot, and watch Mann family chronicles printed on glass. There was a book reading upstairs.
  • Best museum in town! Very interesting information in German, English and even Swedish. 3,5 euros for students
  • Somewhat disappointing. The subject matter is very interesting, but one gets lost in all the details, whereas the reflection of the lights in the glass cases and the small print doesn't help. Floor about the Buddenbrooks book was worth the visit though.
  • If you're a fan of Thomas Mann or indeed the novel Buddenbrooks. This is a must. Very well kept and nicely laid-out exhibition with lots of information and detail.
  • Ok
