I enjoyed this museum far more than I was expecting - with it housing items for Baveria's past relating to Chritianity, knights, homes and people. One can walk through fully recreated houses, and see skeltons sitting on wooden lions, among novel and iteresting weapons. The...More

This is a very nice museum near the southern edge of the English Garden, about a 20 minute walk from Marienplatz. We visited for about three hours, but one can easily spend an entire morning or afternoon there (we didn’t manage to see the entire...More

This museum is well worth the trip. Although it is a little out of the way in Munich, there is a nearby bus stop, but no convenient metro stop nearby. The highlight for me was the carvings of Tilman Riemenschneider, a master medieval wood carver...More

I’ve been to Munich many times but never went in this museum. This place has a wonderful collection of nativity scenes. I can’t describe them you must go and see them. Plus art that is out of this world. I particularly like the wood scuptures...More

Worth a visit to understand the history of Munich. Need to do a section at a time - loads to see and take in. 2 hours max. and then return for a another visit. Difficult to find your way around.

This museum is exactly as advertised, a museum of artifacts from when Bavaria was a kingdom before the unification of Germany in 1871. Some of the things they have here are astonishing. Full suits of armor for people of all ages, incredible tapestries and many...More

Perhaps I went to this museum with the wrong expectations. I was looking for something unique to the history of the local area, culture, customs and cities. Instead this is a run of the mill history museum with plenty of old Christian artefacts, swords, armour...More

It simply is a must see event in Munich. It isn't open on Mondays. But every other day of the week it is open 10-5pm local time.
