Small museum, old home. Goods pictures, beautiful. Not much to see. Emotional for Germans who know the poet.

Only interesting when you really adore Goethe. Collection of texts, pictures and statues. Only in German. Theatre is broken.

When I visited the musuem I wasn't exactly sure to expect, but I found a "run-of-the-mill" attraction with display cabinents etc. There is however quite a lot of information about Goethe to learn, and an interesting feature where the rooms are painted in a special...More
