I went to the Residenz in the hope of learning more about Bavarian Royal history, and I did.
The entrance fee is alright (EUR 7) and included is an audioguide which is nice.
The museum is quite large and there are a lot of exhibits in the museum. Some of the rooms like the Antiquarium and the Kaisersaal are quite impressive. Otherwise, it's like any other castle or royal palace you visit with the exuberant furniture, beds, chandeliers etc. etc.
But this is somehow not like all other palaces in the end, because parts of it were bombed and heavily damaged during WWII. This means that these parts have been reconstructed and are not original as such - however it does make you think about WWII also and the heavy bombings of Germany at the end of the war - very interesting.
Go there early in the day, as it is a popular museum among tourists.
