This museum does not really add much to the experience of seeing the castles, but it does put King Ludwig in perspective. The history of the Wittelsbach family is well described, but there are very few artifacts. The most interesting section tells the story of the family after 1939. They resisted the Nazis and were sent to concentration camps. They were given special treatment, allowed to stay together in special housing, but they were not liberated until the end of the war. The museum is a pleasant place to spend a little time between castle visits, but for most visitors the castles themselves are a lot more worthwhile.

The museum is interesting in that it provides a really good history of the royal family and events of the times. There are some nice displays and it is well set out. The museum is quite small and won't take long to get around. The free audio was a nice touch.

It is a small museum.
You will need a 1EUR coin to use the locker where you just leave all your stuff.
Not allowed to take pictures inside.
Avoid going there after a castle tour if you are tired because you won't visit this museum as it deserves.

This is a nice museum that helps you understand who all these different people are - kings, queens, etc. You can get a recorder that tells you the stories, although I would have enjoyed just reading the information. Kids got a little bored because there's a lot of information and not lots of interesting things to look at.

The museum has some interesting artifacts, but I most enjoyed getting more information on the Royal Family and how things worked in the 19th Century. It is a little bit of a let-down after touring the castles, but I'm glad we also saw the museum.
