  • In the old NS walls the Nuremberg of NAZI past time working on. This concept is excellent. Gorgeous, impressive, fascinating. If one sees the photos and film footage, reads the texts or sounds, a shower on the back is a... Interactive, entertaining and informative. Conclusion: Highly recommended!

  • Should be first drop in Nuremberg great history of Germany and the Nazi party, how it happened, WW2 and the Holocaust. Very moving and very well done. 
  • Continuing exhibits about the Nazis. There are audio guides in English, is Japan. I hardly understand English audio guide is not borrowed. It is a terminal station direct tram from central station.

  • I was expecting more, with this being the only open venue to the whole rally ground complex. What it is is a history lesson with stuff generally found on the Net. Very few actual artifacts from that era. And NO access to the rallygrounds :( This said there're audioguides included in the ticket price and the whole thing is pretty well set up. Access is easy by public transport too.
  • The permanent exhibit shows how the NSDAP, led by Adolf Hitler, rose to power in Germany and documents chronologically how the dictator expanded his powers. The museum tells the story from 1922 onwards to the Nuremberg trials and is housed in one of Speer's manic and superlative structures that was intended to be used as conference building/stadium that would enable party meetings of up to 50.000 people. It's an important place that can help to remind us today how quickly a terror regime can grab power and what it led to in Europe when it happened in 1933.
  • If you visit Nuremberg you should visit here. This is where hitler gave his speeches that brainwashed the German people and where the nazis held those elaborate ceremonies such a sense of history. The same thing is happening today in America people better wake up.
  • If you're interested in the history of Nazi Germany you're going to take away a lot from this exhibit. The audio guide is helpful and teaches you a lot about mass propaganda and marches in the 3rd Reich, the location gives you a small glimpse at what things were like back then. If you're not interested in learning about the history you shouldn't come here though. It's not a flashy, exciting. Rather its neutral and focused on the facts.
  • Had an amazing tour and friendly tour guides. Makes a great trip for the history lesson. Definitly recommend.
