Day Tickets

For an extra 2.50 EUR you can also use your entrance ticket as a day ticket, i.e. if, for example you buy a day ticket at Documentation Centre Nazi Party Rally Grounds, you may also visit all other municipal museums free of charge on the same day.
This day ticket offer does not apply to holders of the Nuremberg Pass and to school students visiting with their school class.

The tickets do not include special guided tours, such as e.g. the costumed guided tour with "Agnes Dürer" in Albrecht Dürer's House or with "Katharina Tucher" in the Museum Tucher Mansion, the visit to the Mediaeval Dungeons, the World War II Art Bunker, the Graphic Art Collection or Court Room 600, or the programmes offered by the Study Forum at the Documentation Centre Nazi Party Rally Grounds.

For information on these programmes please see individual museum pages.
