They have few interesting displays but however, most of the exhibits are in German, so for non speaking German visitors like us, could be really challenging trying to understand what is it that they are trying to show.

Museum is located near the city centre and only costs a euro to visit on Sundays. The collection has an interesting number of artefacts from bavaria and is based on 3 floors each one focusing on a particular period/genre. Worth a visit

It is a large museum, so we only visited the medieval and barok exhibition. A lot of church interiors and the like, but also things like weaponery, some coins, bronze stuff and others (for middle ages) and lots of furniture for the barok. However, it...More

If you have any kind of interest in old wooden sculptures this is the place. This museum is a wood carver's European Shangri-La. The only bad thing I can say about the collection is that it's so big you have to put in time for...More

The museum gives a great overview of Bavarian history, arts and crafts. Apart from that it houses a great collection of town-models as they were in the 16th century. For me the highlight is the collection of christian nativity and related sceneries. A must and...More

The museum is arranged in chronological order, and we decided to go backwards in time - I found the gradual loss in sophistication of pieces interesting to appreciate. Some of the rooms were impressive in how they were designed.

The museum shows a lot of the history of Bavaria and it's relations to the countries and royal families around (from Italy, France to Austria and Germany), but I would not visit it if it would not be a rainy day , there are better...More

This museum is very reasonably priced. But full of great artwork!!! We took an audio guide and recommend that to anyone who visits. The basement took most of our time. They are in possession of one of the largest collections of Nativity scene from the...More

This is a traditional museum: everything written in German, just an audioguide with some explanations in English, no interactive documentation. Nonetheless, it was a nice experience. We appreciated especially the Gothic (mostly religiiuos) and the Baroque collection. Too bad we had no time to visit...More

It simply is a must see event in Munich. It isn't open on Mondays. But every other day of the week it is open 10-5pm local time.

The entrance fee is about $8, which is a rough conversion of the cost of €7. A lot of the staff do speak English, at the ticket desk, shop and the restaurant. This is pretty common in Germany. Whether they are nice will... More
