Nuremberg’s “Germanisches Nationalmuseum”
Nuremberg’s “Germanisches Nationalmuseum” – an art history window to an entire nation
The ”Germanisches Nationalmuseum” at Kornmarkt in Nuremberg is considered the largest art and culture history museum of the German-speaking area. The “Straße der Menschenrechte”, laid out by Dani Karavan in 1993, leads to the entrance. The 27 round columns lining the route display extracts of the Declaration of Human Rights in various languages. The “Germanisches Nationalmuseum” has more than a million exhibits dating from 30 000 BC until modern times. While strongly committed to tradition, the “Germanisches Nationalmuseum” understands itself also as an institute of teachings and research. In 1852, Hans Freiherr von Aufseß founded the institution as “Zentralinstitut der Erforschung deutscher Geschichte”. The exposition comprises paintings, sculptures, and design work and is enriched by interesting temporary exhibitions.
Germanisches Nationalmuseum – jewels of German history
The exhibits of the “Germanisches Nationalmuseum” have an inestimable value. You’ll find there gold work dating from Middle-Ages, sculptures by Veit Stoß and Adam Kraft, artisan and guild antiquities, a collection of arms, paintings by Albrecht Dürer, or historical doll houses. The stock of the Bavarian 'Gewerbemuseum' has been integrated as well.
