  • Gives a good insight into Thomas Mann, his great work and the time he and family lived in. A museum in the size I love. You can see it in less than an hour, but also spend more time without getting boring. I want to read more of his works and try to get the film.

  • A lot of facts about the Mann family and the fictional Buddenbrook family. Exciting to visit the house where Fam Mann really lived despite the fact that there is nothing left of original interior except some furniture,

  • This is the place to visit if you're interested in the life and works of Thomas Mann as well as his siblings Heinrich and Erika. This museum is well organized and provides its visitors with lots of information. I found the juxtaposition of various film adaptations of BUDDENBROOKS particularly interesting (there's a small room on the 3rd floor where they can be watched in quiet). The gift shop offers you many (if not all) of major works (and some translations too), plus other memorabilia.
  • The staff was very helpful and the exhibitions very interesting but was disappointed by the house itself as I expected it to have been reconstructed the way it was (like so many other places bombarded in WWII) ... only the original facade survived and the rest is just an ordinary block of concrete walls... 2 of the rooms in the house have been re created with furniture etc... and that is rather effective , with the view on st Maria church which gives a feeling for what it could have been like living there in the 19th century.
