The museum is easy to find on the way up to the castle. Entry is 6 euros and you get an English audio guide. The tour starts on the 4th floor where you have a large carved model of Nuremberg described to you. You then...More

Really enjoyed this visit. Well presented and carefully restored house. A fantastic model of the City on the top floor with multi media presentation. Great value for money, particularly with the excellent day ticket.

This museum in an original historic house is definitely a ‘must see’. It contains amazingly decorated rooms including the ‘beautiful room’ from the lost Pellerhaus, and a wonderful plaster ceiling. Highlight is the 1939 wooden cityscape of Nürnberg which shows exactly what it used to...More

I came here as it was free with the extra 3 Euros I'd paid for the municipal museum ticket. Got through it all in 20 min. Worth going to kill time and only if its free.
