This place is a well-organized museum jam-packed with stuff. We learned a lot about Martin Luther and the times he lived in. It is also really cool how the museum is like wrapped around but also includes the structure of the original house. The one...More

This wonderful 500 year old building where Martin Luther lived and taught is both unique and historically interesting. The architecture is stunning and the museum is filled with remarkable artifacts from a printing press for the first printed bibles to stunning art and personal items...More
