Don't be fooled by its out-of-the-way position on the edge of town, or indeed the relatively cheap entry price - this is a great museum crammed with artefacts and information. You can pick up a free audioguide when you buy your ticket (plus a special "photo allowance pass" if you want to take pics!) which is worth it because the majority of the information on the displays themselves is only in German. Just keep your eyes peeled for the blue audioguide numbers. There are also information sheets in numerous languages at the start of each room, which give you an informative overview of the historical context for that particular section. To go chronologically, you have to go upstairs first and then work your way down, and don't forget to look at the building itself too on your way round - the Hall of Fame with its paintings of various military victories is a particular highlight. There's so much here that you could easily spend hours wandering around, but if you're short of time be sure to have a look at Archduke Ferdinand's car and the Second World War sections before you leave.
