No other Nuremberg Museum will tell you more about this city's rich industrial heritage. It tells you a rise-and-fall-story – don't expect too much multimedia knick-knack; it tells its story very conventionally with exquisite exhibits and simple signposts. It's a no-nonsense Museum that values substance higher than style. And it has the most impressing collection of classic motorcycles I've ever... More

This museum shows how things change in lifetime. For example they had old nintendo games now people play on there smartphones. The exhibits include old cars, old bicycles even an old class room. There are also workshops for children. Note everything is in German. The museum goes from the 19th century to present of Nuremberg. The museum is easy to... More

The good collection has many real functioning machines that give kids and adults a quick idea how things evolve quickly. Many things are display in a real life scenario or are interactive, crowded by a video section where one can remember with the kids how it was to play tennis with two bars as players and a squared ball. Classic!... More

We arrived there during weekday and were almost alone there. The info is only in German, but the staff there were trying hard to explain everything to us and show all the possible working mechanisms. It was amazing! I`d go there again!

It’s possible to go to that museum by tram n. 8. The stop is right in front of the museum entrance. In it one can see samples the most amazing models of vintage bicycles, motorbikes and cars manufactured in Nüremberg in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. It is an admirable collection of such vehicles which make the visitor feel enraptured... More

great half day out. Take the number 8 tram from the town centre to Tafelwerk - about 10 minutes, and go back in time. Located in an original building. Main displays include motor bikes, cars, production machines, printing and electrical plus recreations of 'old nurnberg' - schoolroom, dentist, cinema, shop. see how things used to be. Very helpful staff. Many... More

This museum lacks the hands-on experiences and the interactivity that most of the museums of this type have. There are some exhibits for the visitors to interact with, but most of them didn't function when we visited the museum. It has an nice collection of motorcycles and an interesting representation of an old classroom and a dental office. It is... More

We went on a Sunday morning, it was great. Tons to see and a pretty cool reproduction of areas in NBerg - we do however wish the kids area was a little larger.

This is a pristine museum full of very interesting items: nearly all of them not-behind-glass. Yes, lots of machines and motors, but still more than enough displays to also charm the non-mechanically minded. Amazing insights into history of schools/education: enough to pursuade my teens that school today is not so bad after all. Fantastically helpful and well informed staff, who... More
