Touring the museum

Reserving group tour

A tour brings you face to face with the immense changes that our modern life has undergone as a result of developments in the last 200 years. The hall of a former screw factory now houses a large collection of original objects, reconstructions and assemblages that illustrate life and work in the industrial age. A steam engine, Hercules bicycle and horseless carriage demonstrate urban development in Nuremberg. Technical achievements like PCs, the invention of the mp3 and a robot that's useful in motor production bring the story down to the present. At certain points along the timeline, worthwhile detours round out the diverse portrait of the city's history – because there's also a lot to see about Nuremberg's folk festivals, beer-brewing culture and enthusiasm for sports.
