Very beautiful. Especially I was fascinated by the puppet theater which he received as a gift in his childhood and started dreaming plays in that puppet theater. Definitely it is worth watching.
This is a great location to go to get an understanding of life for the wealthy during Goethe's lifetime. It is interesting to see how they lived and to see how he started out. Although there isn't much English before the tour of the house, the descriptions of the rooms on the English language card are sufficient. I've been here twice, now, and enjoyed myself both times. I definitely recommend it.
It's a great museum, documenting Goethe's early life... However, in comparison with similar museums devoted to great artists,, such as the Mozart museum in Vienna, or the Wordsworth museum in Grasmere, Goethe House contains relatively a small number of the poet's personal belongings. One has a feeling that it's rather a museum of Goethe's epoch, the time when he grew up...
I would recommend using a guide device, it's will explain a lot of things that you would not know by just seeing
Interesting museum , certainly recommend to visit but audio guide is provided not for free :(
