This museum has an amazing collection of items detailing the Grimm brothers life and works. The top floor mainly displays the many notes the brothers wrote to keep track of their writing...a bit dull for kids and non German speakers. The lower floor was more...More

If you are expecting a fairy-tale museum, do not visit. The Grimm Brothers were about much more than the fairy tales they collected, and this museum is a reflection of that. As a writer and self-professed word nerd, I found this museum inspiring. To learn...More

Definitely, a worth landark of Kassel - both for a family and a solo traveller interested in learning something new about the famous Grimm Brother. Super interesting installations - various, bright and educational. It should also be mentioned - translated into English.

This was stop one on our 'Fairy Tale Route' drive in Germany, as the Bros Grimm were the inspiration for our holiday. Parking was just outside on the street, which is a couple of Euros. Didn't eat in the restaurant, although the views are good...More

This is a very informative museum - but you have to be able to read. There is lots and lots of reading to be done, even though the displays are fantastic and interactive.
