Goethe National Museum And Home, Weimar Reviews - Write a Review

  • I love Goethe so I can say that is really amazing. The firts thing to see is the house then you must see the museum with a big exhibition of the writer's life, his opera and some of his nature collection. He was one of the biggest genius in the world!

  • Very nice museum and original historic house, many tidy rooms and original elegant fornitures. The garden is wide and quiet even if it is the center of Weimar. (here you should know a little deutsch) Credit cards accepted

  • A really great insight into the life of Goethe. His home is kept as close as possible to the way it was when he died and a very thorough (free) audio guide helps putting it all into perspective.

  • great place to visit, a lot of history and totally recommend it
