Per­ma­nent Ex­hi­bition

Lutherhouse in Eisenach - the new permanent exhibition

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 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.

Luther in Eisenach

“No city knows me better,” said Luther about Eise­nach. His family lived her. He atten­ded school here. He trans­lated the New Testa­ment here. These are many good reasons to visit Luther’s “beloved city” and the Luthe­rhaus, of course.
