“Good if your interested in Hunting or in Birds”
Reviewed 15 August 2013 via mobile

The museum is located in the downtown area of Munich between Marionplatz and Status. When I visited many of the fishing exhibits were under construction. There is a very good collection of stuffed birds which a lot of information about them albeit in German. There was a good collection of wild animals and hunting equipment.
The building itself is interesting as it was formally an Augustine monastery. The are good notes for the exhibits but they are almost exclusively in German. The admission price is quite low and for a small additional price an audio guide can be hired. If you cannot read German I think an English audio guide essential.
Don't forget to ask for a Senior discount, if appropriate.

“fun, even for a non-outdoorswoman!”
Reviewed 6 March 2013

My husband's avocations are the main reason we stopped by this place. I expected to be BORED but what fun! Stuffed animals; artifacts from centuries ago related to fishing and hunting; fine art "masterpieces" related to the themes. One of the cutest displays were about a dozen dioramas which depicted various hunting activities in Germany over the centuries as shown by small metal figures, handpainted and fabulously detailed!!!! Don't get queasy when you cross the simulated rocky stream.....

“Interesting and no tourists!”
Reviewed 27 January 2013

This museum is located between Stachus and Marienplatz. It's all about - you guessed it - hunting and fishing. Our kids enjoyed it because of the hundreds of "stuffed" animals on display. A very special treat for them: The Wolpertinger! See it for yourself, this mythical creature of the Bavarian woods.

“Go here when it starts raining - also good for kids and blind people”
Reviewed 25 January 2013

I Live in Munich

If you are in the pedestian area of Munich (=Fussgängerzone) and it starts raining - Go here for 1-3 hours. It is about 300 m from Marienplatz direction Karlsplatz on your right (about 100m from the Frauenkirche)

All animals are padded.
You will mainly see animals of the region, but also some exotic ones. Ever wondered what a Woiperdinger looks like? (Animal which only lives in Bavaria - google it :-) ) They have a few on Display.

They have a few animals children or blind may touch.

They also display some weapons of old times which one used to chase.

Not expensive

Also good for small children.
