My husband and I are in our 70s and have been inside many castles, so we decided to walk up to Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau castles and enjoy the exterior views but not take the interior tours. We decided that this museum might be the good way to enjoy the history of the area. It was a perfect choice: excellent displays, very good English audio guide included with your €9.50 ticket, and absolutely perfect views over the lake, which is right next door. The entire family history of the Bavarian kings is displayed in a pleasing long corridor, with just enough info to make you want to continue to the next member without drowning in too much data. While there are not rooms of original items, those which are included provide a perfect overview. And the room filled with displays and original film from WWII is a MUST NOT MISS. We found this part of the museum, which explained the roll of this family during and after the war, to be worth the visit. There is a very nice gift shop and a lovely cafe with amazing views.
