This museum is in the house Luther lived with his wife and children in the 1500s. It includes actual living quarters, his publications and library, many portraits, historical timeline and is very well done. The museum has three floors of exhibits.

The museum offers a great deal of information about Luther's life and the history of the Reformation. One drawback is that there was some information on English with weirdy typos and sometimes I had to rely on my German (even tough worse than my English)...More

On the first day there was an excellent 30 minute service in English that was well attended. The next day, there was a fantastic organ concert. Try and see what is going on while you are in town.
