This is the worst museum I have ever stepped foot in. Do not waste your money on going upstairs. Just use the free bathrooms downstairs and leave.

The displays were great. They were in English and German. Lots of history was captured in this museum. Great view of lake Alpsee

I visited here after doing both castle tours. I arrived 90 minutes before closing time figuring that would be enough, but I was only halfway through the museum when they were closing! I would definitely recommend at least 2 hours!

Most people focus only on Neuschwanstein castle and they pay little attention to the Museum. It is a pity that most tourist groups coming for a day trip spend insufficient time and could not afford to give tourists enough time to include the museum. If...More

Beautiful and informative if a bit convoluted as to organization, although that may just be me. Has much more information about the Bavarian queens than I was expecting (I was pleasantly surprised to hear one was a scientist, another an accomplished mountaineer) since most people...More

The inside of this museum worth a visit but nothing fantastic except some robes on display. Like many German museums you have to leave all bags in lockers at entrance. Fee returnable.

My gut said "no", my head said "well you'll probably won't visit it again" so I bought tickets to all 3 attractions including the museum. They are just taking items out of the castles, watering down the tours and expanding the money grab. The only...More
