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. That's...More

I can't recommend this museum too highly - in fifty years of travelling, I thought it one of the best museums I've ever been to. It has a marvellous, eclectic collection, including wonderful paintings from the Northern Renaissance, a superb collection of armour, scientific instruments...More

Of our two weeks in Germany, touring seven cities, this was one of the highlights. The collections displayed were among the finest, descriptions expertly done and very educational, and everything beautifully arranged.

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.

We called into the Museum for a short wander round and ended up spending hours there. It had some brilliant historic German rooms which I particularly liked. A brilliant museum with so much to see its impossible to describe everything, but I would recommend going.
