Mini-Versailles
Nov 2019 • Friends
King Ludwig II wanted to emulate King Louis of France and he did it with his miniature version of Versailles. It is wonderfully kept and the tour was very informative and you don’t feel rushed as you move through the rooms. Even though only 20 rooms out of the 70 planned for the castle are completed it is still wonderful. A nice addition is you get to see some of the unfinished portion of the castle which allows you to understand the construction. Oh if only he used real marble, instead of that expensive imitation marble, he may have been able to finish and more rooms.

This museum is located inside the palace and your admission ticket covers the entrance. Loads of people visit the palace but so few went to the museum. There are some beautiful exhibits and room in the museum which you can see at your own pace and you can take photos. It gives you an insight into King Ludwig and his love of the arts.

Fascinating History and Furnishings
May 2019 • Couples
This museum is dedicated to the history of King Ludwig II and is located inside the Schloss Herrenchiemsee and entry came as part of our entrance ticket to the palace. Within the museum are numerous photos of the King throughout his lifetime, paintings and tapestries, clothing and ceremonial robes and numerous furniture pieces that came from King Ludwig's state rooms and office in the Residence in Munich and other royal palaces.

I enjoyed the museum`s exhibition but I found it weird that the boards with information on were only in german language. The museum is not that big but it gives you a good representation of Ludwig`s life and his incredible castles.

Dedicated to the stages of life of Ludwig II
Dec 2018 • Solo
Same ticket with the Herrenchiemsee museum.
Visit Duration: 30 minutes.

The museum is dedicated to the stages of life of Ludwig II from birth to early tragic death through painted portraits, busts, historical photographs and original ceremonial robes.

Original period furniture from the destroyed royal apartment of the Munich Residence or from the first bedroom of Linderhof Palace are highlights of the museum.

The short boat trip to Herren-Insel is very nice with great views. The picturesque road to the castle complex is very pleasant and the grounds are beautiful even in winter. Interesting museum/castle left by Ludwig II. The English speaking guide was pleasant and knowledgeable.

Although the museum is not that big it is interesting. Simply because of the fascinating live he had. We now visited all of his castles. Really great we got this museum as a bonus. It is free if you have a ticket of the "Königschloss".

From his birth to his tragic death
Sep 2018 • Couples
The museum is a part of Herrenchiemsee Palace. If you have a combo-ticket (11 euros) you can visit the museum before or after palace's visit. As you entre to welcoming hall of Grand Palace, look right - this is your entrance to museum.

I really liked this museum telling more and more details of life and death the most mysterious King of 19 century. The museum has the documents the story of Ludwig II's life, from his birth to his tragic early death with his rare photos and members of family, photos of his failed bride Sophie as well as her sister and Ludwigs' sweetheart Sisi, documents, letters, models of his castles and theatre (most of them never been completed). The museum open hours coordinate with palace hours (so depend on season) but open daily. Allow yourself to spend here 35-40 minutes at your own pace, no audio guide, but very well detailed descriptions in English under each exhibit, photographies are allowed inside. Last admission the the museum- 30 minutes before closing time.
If you visit this museum, you will not be indifferent if you are interested in the reign of the last king of Bavaria. Visiting this museum you will have a complete picture and understanding of the king as a person, as well as the entire tragedy of his life and fall.
