This museum is definitely a must-see when visiting Nuremberg, as it houses one of the most significant German art collections, ranging from medieval painting, sculpture and arts & crafts, to fairly contemporary ones. It also offers a great insight into the daily lives of people...More

We arrived about an hour before closing, and were told that, because of that, entrance was free. The downside is that an hour isn't nearly enough time to see all of the absorbing exhibits. Bags and purses need to be put in lockers.

The permanent collection is quite splendid, but this time we particularly enjoyed one of the special exhibitions, about painting and photography in the 19th and early 20th centuries, and the growing influence of photography on painting as the former became more sophisticated. It is well...More

We recommend the audio guide, even if you arrive an hour before closing. They have art, incl. works by Durer, but what is perhaps more interesting are the artifacts--scientific instruments, the first globe, an extensive textiles and furniture section, and an extensive weapons section.

All about the positive past, from middle ages, touch of roman, hint of modern. There is something for most tastes and some must see displays like the globe without the USA! Loved the fashion, the farmhouse and the art.
