“Not great”
Reviewed April 2, 2014 via mobile

We went in here and the chap on the front desk wasnt very helpful or friendly. We walked round the displays but only a few had the info in english so didnt really get to find out all that much on the history. The best bit was the beer cellar where we had a drink and it was loveky and cosy. The staff im afraid to say were not as friendly as we had experienced everywhere else in Germany. Bit of a disappointment.

Thank ktkatuk

“Lack of English information”
Reviewed February 26, 2014 via mobile

A bit of a disjointed museum.
Did not really flow nor tell us much.
Unfortunately the only English language information boards were one per display room, but each separate exhibit was only labelled in German. So the display on the top level of numerous cartoons of Donald Duck were lost on us.
A nice building but the contents were not so good.
Maybe good for a rainy day.

“Good for Beer Lovers - try 3 beer sampler”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

Beer culture is a big part of Munich and a visit to the Beer Museum should be on the Beer Tourists itinerary. At €2,50 its not expensive, the museum well constructed and fitted museum, good photo opportunities set up with props and a good set of Beer memorabilia. I was a bit disappointed with the Stein collection, I expected a wider collection. Afterwards we went for a drink in the very nice Cellar Bar ... we asked for the sampler of 3 small beers which was advertised, this seemed to be all too difficult.... we eventually persuaded the bar staff. However this is a Beer Museum for tourists and we were disappointed at the reluctance of the staff to sell us beer.

One of the best beer feasts throughout the world. Good place to know people all around the globe. Beyond the beer, you should try the chicken.

“Something you have to do at least once in your life”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

Loud and noisy? Sure it is. Expensive? Kind of, yes. Worth it? Without doubt.
To get to the beer (and why else would you come?) you have to go to one of the tents, or areas, and you must be seated. Bierfraus will then come to you and you say how many 1l beers you'd like (or what food if you're hungry).
Other than that, there are fairground rides, and stalls selling all sorts of things.
Be wary though, this is a tourist trap, and you could quite easily end up over-spending.
Very little trouble considering the amount of alcohol consumed, but you will encounter plenty of passed out people, which was relatively amusing for me.
