The place where the famous painter and engraver used to live.Very nice rehabilitated.Unfortunately,there's only one room in the house that we know for sure what it was in that times:the kitchen.All the other rooms are arranged based on assumptions:"here probably was the workshop,there probably was the bedroom" and so on.Yet the house is very interesting helping you to make an...

Went on generally glowing reviews from Tripadvisor and Google. It was underwhelming to say the least, but the weekend tours led by his "wife" were a nice touch, and the exhibits definitely gave us a better context of who Durer was and put his work in context of the political climate and the humanist movement. The replica of his printing... More

A lovely museum about a talented artist ahead of his time. The house itself is of historic interest also. Located at a lovely open square adjacent to the City wall. Have lunch afterwards in any of several outdoors cafes.

It's interesting to be in one of the oldest houses in Nurnberg and where the famous Albrecht Durer lived and died, but the visiting experience itself didn't raise to my expectations. I already read about the artist in advance and didn't feel very drawn into the info from the audio guide.

the house is interesting to visit, in good condition, and one gets a feeling for how people lived there in Durer's time. Even printing presses are installed and demonstrated, you can get hands-on experience by printing a copy of an engraving. But there are no Dürer works to admire (they are all distributed in other museums around the world).

We visited the museum with our 10 and 12 yr old kids. Used the audio guide in English. Very well done tour and informative displays. The museum held the kids' interest too, Which is definitely a plus.

I did not realized the reach of Albrecht Dürer into my life until I came here. So much of the imagery I've seen in history textbooks and travels was created by this man! When we went, we did a woodcut press copy of Dürer's Rhinoceros (1515). It didn't cost that much, and it is really a great thing if you... More

The albrecht Durer house tells of the artistry of the master who lived and worked there until he died. The house pays homage to him throughout the home and courtyard. He I still known for watercolor paintings and a huge life size bronze hare in the square next to the house pays homage to an incredible artist!

The house is a great piece of history, close to the castle. You can learn many things from Durer's life by visiting this place. It was sad tough that most of the paitings are copies.
