Extremely well presented museum about this modern German statesman. Informative, insightful and very well laid out. Excellent coverage of the tumultuous times this exceptional man lived through and helped to shape.

Don’t miss this when you’re in Lübeck. Willi Brandt, born in this city, was a towering figure and this museum illustrates his life and work in a most interesting way.

I very much enjoyed visiting this charming art and history museum in a lovely historic house. The period rooms, always a favorite of mine, were both pretty and interesting as well. Also, I recommend the cafe next to the museum. I had a terrific salad and slice of cake for lunch - delicious!

I think this place may be fascinating even for those not interested in politics. The museum offers a view of a man in turbulent times, and this makes the exhibition so special.

This museum is a must visit if you are interested in history or politics. I learnt a great deal about the early life of Willy Brandt, that I was not aware of. English captions and English audio guide available. Strongly recommended.
