“Get your lucky penny”
Reviewed 2 January 2014

You get a penny back from the ticket price, which is very important. With Karl Valentin everything is a bit different. His sense of humour is typical for Munich, so do not expect to understand everything if you are not Bavarian. The objects in the exhibition bring you back in time. And the best part of your trip will be the coffee shop at the top of the building. You can also have beer of course and delicious cakes.

“A gem!”
Reviewed 3 August 2013

This tribute to Karl Valentin is a must see! Inside an ancient tower with a wonderful little cafe at the top, it takes you through his and Liesl Karlstadt's lives and careers, and also has visiting exhibtions - this summer it was one on comics, children's and adults'. It's abolutely hilarious (of course!), but there is a lot of reading and listening so it really is only suitable for fluent German speakers, although it's worth the tiny entrance fee just for the super cafe alone. As already noted, the spiral staircase makes it unsuitable for those with limited mobility.

“Weird - Well worth visiting”
Reviewed 6 April 2013

This is a very unusual and special museum and well worth a visit even if you have never heard of Karl Valentin. Entrance is very cheap and the museum is very central so it is easy to visit. It is also quite small so it doesn't take long to see all the exhibits. I think you need to be able to read and understand German in order to fully appreciate the humour of Valentin and the museum.
It is inside a towers accessed by narrow spiral staircases so this attraction is not suitable for the handicapped.
