Some highlights include the Cloth of St. Gereon, the oldest European tapestry still existing, plus portraits and paintings by Albrecht Dürer and Ernst Ludwig Kirchner.

  • A beautiful museum located near the old town, it offers visitors the opportunity to range from painting to sculpture, from the collection of musical instruments to the collection of scientific instruments. It embraces a huge time span from the Iron Age, passing through objects from the Roman era, longobarda until you get to works of the twentieth century. The timetables and costs are re-established on the site. On Wednesdays it opens open open until 9pm and from 6pm admission is free. It took us about 2 hours to visit it.

  • There are many museums in Nuremberg, but if you choose one, this is the German museum. The exhibits, including the town's painters, Dürer's paintings, and the oldest globes and musical instruments in the world, are worth a look. You should not be able to see it in half a day.

  • Take tons of time! Such a beautiful museum with tons to see. For young children (10 or under) the toy museum is a must see. They have free tours every two hours to show the highlights of the museum as well. Highly recommend. I feel like you would need a week to see everything!
  • What a rich and diverse collection of antiques!! The jewelry from back then is so extensively laid out 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼 The fabric industry produced such quality clothes.. What a wonderful surprise !! The paintings, sculptures, clothes, music instruments from back then... It just took me through a journey to some other place... I would visit this place again.... 😅 Highly recommended to museum lovers.
