Reserving group tours

Is there a cloakroom?

The area near the ticket desk has unguarded coat racks and small lockers. Keys to the lockers are available at the ticket desk.

May I bring my dog?

According to our statutes, dogs – with the exception of guide dogs for the blind – are not permitted in any of the Nuremberg Municipal Museums.

Is there somewhere to get a coffee or a bite to eat after a visit?

Unfortunately there is no food or beverage service at the Tucher Mansion Museum and Hirsvogel Hall. But many cafés and restaurants are located just a short walk away on the Innere and Äussere Laufer Gasse.

Is there parking at your building?

Because of the museum's location in the historical center, there is no parking at the building itself. But municipal parking garages are available only a short walk away.

Is the facility equipped for the disabled?

Unfortunately, disabled access is available only to the Hirsvogel Hall and the upper terrace of the Renaissance Garden. The Hirsvogel Hall also has an audio induction loop that enables the hearing-impaired who have appropriately equipped hearing aids to enjoy concerts, readings and lectures.

Can I rent your facility?

The Hirsvogel Hall, the entrance hall of the Tucher Mansion, the Mansion Courtyard and the Renaissance Garden can all be rented for private or official events.
