  • The regular events in the Palace of Justice, which take up different issues from the Third Reich, specifically serve a high task: "The past". You should always back then look and this visit.

  • A blast from the past in what was the place where Nazi leaders were tried after World War II. If you are in the area a visit is a must.

  • The Hall where the Nuremberg trials is not immense but evokes a certain emotion, the Museum is beautifully maintained and explores all aspects of this important historical event. Low cost and includes audio guide.

  • This place is a must see...I would have been happy to just stand in the courtroom. The interactive Muesum is a fantastic bonus. Give yourself plenty of time, there is a lot to watch and listen to. With only a 5 euro entrance fee you will get great value for money. Even if you only spend 30 minutes looking around.
  • Quite good exhibition
  • Wow! This is a first class site. A must see if you are in Nurnberg. It is one of the most informative museums I have been to. Make sure you block out at least 3 hours for this interactive experience. A must for "Judgment at Nuremberg" movie fans. Five euro gets you into the trial room and a self-guided tour with an English speaking radio device. Very informative- not only covers the trials but the crimes committed under the Nazi regime and the importance on the world stage of bringing future war criminals to answer to the world for their actions.
  • If you are going to do the rest of the Nazi sites (documentation centre, Zeppelin Field, etc) then this is a must-do bookend to end your tour.
  • Amazing museum.
