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.
