This collection of miniatures is amazing!! So authentic and realistic looking you can almost believe you are looking at real actors (they don't move, of course). There are so many scenes displayed that I tired of taking photos of them and finally gave up. These displays are an amazing accomplishment!!

Very interesting museum worth a visit. The collection of early century musical instruments is worth checking out, so to are the examples of 'farmhouse parlours' from different periods. The Gothic hall has an 'interesting' piece of a skeleton astride a lion.

Very impressive museum with great artifacts from various churches going back a few centuries. There is a very nice collection of nativity scenes in the basement. I think this museum is a bit underrated, maybe due to its location but if you have the time, it's worth a visit.

The museum offers a nice overview of artistic achievements of several centuries, from romanic and gothic periods onwards, almost to the present. Nicely prepared and logically organised; unfortunately a part was closed due to restoration during our visit. Recommended!

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
