You see the room where he was assumed to be born, the table where he wrote, and even his mother's porcelain set. The cake forms in the kitchen are also original and interesting, as well as the big clock on the third floor. The house is elegantly decorated with artwork and original material where possible.
In the exhibition part, you can see the works of German artists, mainly from 18th and 19th centuries.
Explanations in English, German, and French on a double sided A4 paper are given, audio phones are available for €4.5, and if you want a guided tour and you are not a student, it will set you back by €52 (only €16 if you are). There are only two guided tours per day at 10:30 and 2:00, by appointment only.
If you want to hang out on your own, the entrance is €5.
The Goethe Museum is open everyday. For more information check out:
