We were surprised by the lovely collection of this fine museum tucked away in Rothenberg. Interesting exhibits from the city's history and the Medieval period in general with coats of arms, ceramics, and other fine collections.

The artifacts were interesting. From the stone age, to luther and the middle ages. However there wasnt much English explanation which made things pretty meaningless.

Stumbled across the museum half by accident as we were walking round the city walls and decided to look in. Great museum set in a former cloister so you have the lovely high ceilings and well laid out gardens as you look around. Interesting displays...More

We weren't planning on visiting this place, but my son (17yo) found it on the city map and led us here. From the outside it is very unassuming. Once you go inside, you are in a very tiny lobby. The lady that was working there...More

I loved this museum! The building and artifacts are well presented and give a good backdrop to the town. I was there on a Thursday morning and almost had the place to myself! Most of what they have is in German with very brief English...More

This is an excellent small museum. Well displayed. Well curated. If you came to Rothenburg for the middle ages, this is a must see. Amble information in English. Furniture, tools, weapons, sculpture, all in a former convent.

The entrance fee doesn't include photo permission - and if you want to record any of what you see, I recommend it. It's a stunning collection that includes statuary, woodwork, swords, guns, armor, paintings, and more - all from the town. I spent a good...More

The museum was better than we expected. The antique weapon collection was impressive. We spent about 2 hours there. The regular price is 5 Euros per person plus 3 Euros for the photo pass. I wish that I would have purchased it. We found it...More

Convenient location, but there are better things you could do with your time, like St. Jacob's Church. Lots of department store mannequins dressed in period costume. Would really benefit from a major renovation.
