If things Medieval are your thing, this is your place. The pieces I particularly enjoyed were the ivory relief carvings from the early middle ages.

So many Nativity scenes in the basement! We didn't realize how long it would go on. By the time we made it out, we had blown our tolerance. There were cool and interesting things upstairs, but we did a quicker walk through. Definitely start upstairs....More

I went here really hoping to learn about Bavaria’s place in German and European history. Yes, there are shining treasures collected from many elite families, but there was virtually nothing that brought it all together. All that is needed is an introductory exhibit explaining some...More

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
