If you are interested in history this is the place to go. All kinds of artifacts and historical pieces from the beginning of history until today's. You won't be disappointed. If you go on a Sunday the entry is only 1 euro. I personally like it better than the Deutsches museum.

One could spend hours exploring & reading all the details. Sculptures that dates back to the 15th century and painting that amazes me.

Had to rather rush round this museum / gallery as we arrived just an hour before closing time, so only scratched the surface. But we did achieve our aim of seeing the lovely sculpture by Tilman Riemenschneider. I suspect the building suffers by comparison to the Pinakotheks; not many visitors there, and it felt a little dingy and neglected. But... More

This beautiful museum seems to have hardly any visitors. That is a real shame ! It has beautiful Riemenschneider wood carvings and Meit sculptures as well as marvelous pottery old and more recent. This museum seems to have very little publicity, and that is a real shame. I am sorry to see such a treasure not get exposed like the... More

Really worth a 2 hour visit. It I'll give an inside in some of the typical aspects of Bavaria from living to religion from building to decorations. The museum building itself is impressive. It's well over 150 years old and at the time already purposed build. This really helps to bring out the look and feel of some of the... More

Really great and just one euro on a Sunday. Extraordinary medieval art, furniture, costumes etc. A real head turner was the glass on top floor. Make sure you don't miss the basement either. Plenty here to see as well. While one of the best museums in Munich not at all crowded. Tram stops very close by. Gift shop is quite... More

It is the second to Deutsches Museum that I enjoyed the most in Munich. Even though it was a Sunday when the fee is only 1euro, there were very little visitors. It has a sizable collection of huge nativity scenes, furniture, instruments, porcelains (chess and backgammons were particularly interesting), toys, wall carpets, parts of churches, ivory, armory, etc.

Well.....it just happened to be a rainy Sunday so the fee was just one Euro. The BEST one Euro I ever spent. I sketched and took notes for seven hours and was alone most of the time. Such fabulous eclectic collections and the 600 piece elaborate silver dinner service nearly made me cry! The huge Blackamoor head (chalice) that was... More

The fact that I went on a Sunday and the museum entrance only cost €1 made it slightly easier to swallow. We had read reviews and were prepared for the lack of English translations, so bought an audio guide to help guide us through the maze. Unfortunately the exhibits were just not for me. Whilst the upstairs concentrates on art... More
