After World War Two which resulted in the greater part Nuremberg being reduced to rubble, an Altstadtmuseum (Old City Museum) was founded to remind the citizens of the Franconian metropole's former architectural beauty. The Fembo House (built in 1420), which was once the home of a rich family was chosen to house this new museum. It was one of the few remaining historic buildings and its pretty exterior stands out. The building's rich interior is splendid with many rooms containing a priceless collection of furniture and art. It was recently re-opened and the newly arranged collection and renovated rooms, many of which feature impressive stucco decorations are as splendid as ever. One new addition which has resulted from this closure is the wooden and clay model of the city, which is brought to life by lighting and sound effects. Also worth mentioning is the 'Beautiful Room' which was once part of the Peller House (Pellerhaus). Over 30 rooms are open to the public, each giving a unique insight into the domestic environment in which the rich citizens once lived. The courtyard, which has an 18 meter deep well can be viewed free of charge.
