Another museum that needs lots of time. In fact we got baroque overload, there is so much to see. A huge variety in the exhibits, armour, paintings, porcelain, a room of a house, pieces from courts, medieval and Renaissance pieces and lots more!

Personally I am more keen on modern history, this the pieces in the are generally from medieval and early history. But they were still very interesting to see, everything is well presented and is multiple languages which helps. There was a good exhibition of a medieval house which I found very interesting to see how Baverians lived in the 16th/17th... More

Impressive and very beautiful large museum complex owns one of the most important collection of decorative arts in Europe. The museum was founded by King Maximilian II of Bavaria in 1855. It is located in the Prinzregentenstraße, one of four royal city avenues, which runs from Prinz-Carl-Palais on the west to Friedensengel (Angel of Peace) to the east about 1,31... More

When I visited I was almost the only person here and I can't understand why. Likely my favorite museum in Munich. Make sure to go the basement to check out the amazing nativity scenes.

I had never realized the variety in which armor came until our visit to the National Bavarian Museum – armor for the knights, armor for their horses, which must have been sturdy beasts to carry all that weight. It seemed somehow endearing that the horses’ face shields included protection for their ears. Suits of armor weren’t the only artifacts. Like... More

They have a very impressive collection from different items, the museum is one of the most important European Decorativ Art center. The art collection displays artworks in more than forty rooms from late antiquity and Romanesque art to Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque and Rococo art to the exhibits of Neoclassicism and Art Nouveau.

Unfortunately, the really good exhibits were closed due to renovation or something the day we visited the museum. We got ourselves an audioguide in English but most items did not have explanations in English. Despite limited information in English, we loved the beautiful paintings and sculptures. Great exhibits. I loved what I heard about Nativity Collections but could not go... More

I will confess I missed the nativity collection, so maybe that would have lightened up my rating of this museum. Also I may have seen too much Medieval religious art at this point to be appreciative. However, I found the displays to be very dark and skewed to the 5th to the 15th centuries such that I skipped part of... More

I was so impressed with the amazing and interesting collections in this museum! I especially enjoyed being able to see most items close enough to actually touch. Beautiful exhibits of medieval armour worn by kings, knights and horses, stained glass, artwork, clothing, Tiffany glass, religious objects, etc, etc. I highly recommmend a visit. My only disappointment was not being able... More
