It was a remarkable experience sitting in the courtroom where the Nuremburg trials took place. The museum and exhibits on the upper floor were incredibly comprehensive, and really help in ones understanding of the trials and the outcome.

This is one room in a large building of the Palace of Provocation. And a lot of stands with information about the Nuremberg process. All this information can be easily found on the Internet. In my opinion, it is a pity time.

This is an important and fascinating memorial. We must keep reminding ourselves of these atrocities, in the hope that the more these things are in the public consciousness, the less likely they are to happen again. There is plenty of information. I was in two...More

This museum is so well done with the audio guide tour. You truly get a grasp for how monumental these trials were and how it impacted the world during that time. I highly recommend putting this museum on your itinerary for traveling in Nuremberg.

In my opinion this is a must see in Nuremberg. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and this is a piece of history that is as relevant today as is was in the 1940s.

We were able to include the courthouse on a tour. The experience was fascinating and we were lucky enough to be able to see the interior as court was not in session.

The museum follows the trail and fate of the leading surviving Nazis after the war. It is done with audio commentary and picture boards and films. The lengths the Allies went to in order to make this trial as fair as possible was out-standing, even...More

You need a guide to get the most insight into this site. It has been restored to the way it looked prior to the war trials and is still in use as an active courtroom so it is not always available for viewing.

I would recommend the audio tour, it covers the history very well and lets you spend more time where you like. You can easily spend 3 or 4 hours here if you view all of the exhibits.
