The museum's collection comprises over 1.2 million objects, making it Germany's largest museum of cultural history, as well as the National Museum of the Federal Republic. A Carthusian monastry with cloister, church and monks' dwellings forms the architectural core of today's museum. The magnificent Schüsselfelder Ship, the sculpture of Veit Stoss and Tilman Riemenschneider and the only seven paintings by Albrecht Dürer still to be found in Nuremberg are stunning highlights of the art of the German world circa 1500.
Of particular appeal to visitors of all ages are the imposing suits of armor in the collection of historical weapons and armor, the toy collection with its rare and wonderful doll houses and one of the world's foremost collections of historical musical instruments.
