There was more to see than could be really appreciated in just a few hours. It was facinating learning more about Luther's married life and of the capable business women Katherina Von Bora Luther was.

As a Lutheran on a (post) 500-year tour of "Luther" sites, this was a must-see. Largely museum now, it would have been nice to see more rooms preserved as the family knew them, (rather than simply having "dioramas"), but very interesting none-the-less.

Many things on religion. Of course it is regarding a lot of Martin Luther. Has many things belonging to him. We went as part of a Viking Cruise so we did not have to pay.

If you love history and Luther, this is a must see. A well put together museum with a combination of the old buildings and the new displays in connection with the 500th anniversary.

It was interesting to be in the former residence of Martin Luther, but the museum was not worth the price of admission. Wittenberg was worth a visit, but we would have skipped the Lutherhaus.

Incredible museum of the Protestant Reformation in the house of Martin Luther. Well worth the cost of admission.
