The Transport Museum

The Craftsmen Courtyard (Handwerkerhof) is like a town within a city. Set within traditional half-timbered houses, local merchants open their workshops up to passersby as they carry out their trade.

Documentation Centre on the Former Nazi Party Rally Grounds
The incomplete Nazi Part Rally Grounds serve as a constant reminder of a bleak point in Nuremberg's history and a monument to what could have been. Today the giant building that was due to be used as a congress hall houses a documentation centre dedicated to telling the story of the Nazi Party. It is situated outside of the city centre but is easy to get to and definitely worth a visit.
You will have to travel to the nearby town of Zirndorf to enjoy this amusement park, but it is a great day out for anyone travelling with kids. Similar to Legoland, it offers experiences and attractions based around the children's toy PLAYMOBIL.
