The exterior of the museum.

The Germanisches Nationalmuseum, founded in Nuremberg, Germany, in 1852, houses a significant collection of items relating to German culture and art extending from prehistoric times through to the present day. With current overall holdings of about 1.2 million objects, the Germanisches Nationalmuseum is Germany's largest museum of cultural history.

Formerly the Germanisches Museum, it was founded by a group of individuals led by Franconian baron, Hans von und zu Aufsess, whose goal was to assemble a "well-ordered compendium of all available source material for German history, literature and art".

The buildings incorporate the remaining structures of the former Nuremberg Charterhouse, dissolved in 1525 and used for variety of secular purposes until the by that time dilapidated remains were given to the Museum in 1857.
