Bigger, better, Luther
Following two years of restoration and renovation, the Lutherhaus Eisenach is a completely new facility with bigger exhibition spaces, better offerings and all sorts of interesting information about Martin Luther.
The heart of the house is the award-winning permanent exhibition “Luther and the Bible”, which features far more than its title suggests: exceptional exhibition objects, multimedia presentations and surprising insights. Here you will learn why, how and with whom Luther translated the Bible and what impact his work had on language, literature and music.
Discover Luther’s world and explore one of the oldest and loveliest half-timbered houses in Thuringia. Follow in young Martin Luther’s footsteps and see the famous “Luther rooms” from 1356. Learn more about Luther’s historic translation of the Bible in a contemporary new exhibition and discover unique treasures of medieval art, works by Cranach, and the record of Johann Sebastian Bach’s baptism.
Browse our museum shop and enjoy the historic flair of the idyllic courtyard, now fully accessible for the first time.
You should plan on needing around sixty minutes to tour the museum. Although almost the entire new permanent exhibition is universally accessible, we still recommend that visitors with disabilities bring a companion with them.
Our new exhibition catalog, which you can purchase exclusively in our museum shop, contains more detailed information on the Lutherhaus and the permanent exhibition. You can download our informational flyer and the Museum Rules here in preparation for your visit.
