After visiting the imperial palace this was just down the hill and easy access. We spent 90 minutes going through the self guided tour with the headsets that are included in the price of the admission.

Kind of bordered on the spiritual ... being in the house where this leader of the Northern Renaissance lived and worked. Wow! The amazing stories about the building and Durer's live were fascinating (eg. petty bureaucrats and 'facilities'). When we were there, there was an...More

This was a lovely museum that captured Durer's life and artistry. He is one of my favorite artists so going here was a much while we were in Nuremberg. I'm so glad we did as it was well worth it.

I come here every time I am in Nuremberg. The audio guide, free with entrance ticket, is excellent. His life and work are well presented. An old reproduction press provides great souvenirs, as well as someone demonstrating the art of copper plate engraving.

The converted house is interesting to visit and the audioguide provides very good information. However we expected to see more of his paintings and maybe better explanations on his techniques.
