Another sublime collection of medieval and later art that is off the radar from most tourists' maps. The armor and gothic collections are unique in that the colections are housed in galleries that have architectural details that match the art period being displayed. Truly original. Be sure not to miss the massive collection of Christmas Cribs in the basement -- it's there year-round, and virtually empty of tourists! I had a field day with my camera. The cribs are exquisitely crafted in Italy, Austria, and Germany in the 18th century. Many are quite complex and detailed. This museum is located in a part of the city that is full of delightful buildings and within walking distance of Marienplatz.
