A quick stroll through this museum is a decent option to get out of the sun for a bit after exploring the English Garden nearby. My favorite area had the carvings in ivory. Not well marked for English-/non-German speakers, but still enjoyable to peru.. Read more »
The good museum in the heart of Munich. Very nice staff. There is parking nearby. On Sunday the ticket costs only 1 euro. It can be a little boring for small children... but of course that's a matter of taste.

Nice place, not too crowded. The diversity is great and cultural. Visit it on Sunday so that you can purchase the ticket with 1€. Note: Not every explanation is in English, mostly German.

Very interesting gallery of a wide range of historical art and artifacts! For English speakers, be aware that while most things have English labels, this is not true for everything! I found the layout to be a little confusing with dead-ends due to bl.. Read more »

This might be the best hidden jewel in Germany. I was there almost by myself today. I might've seen five or seven people besides a group of people that spent about an hour looking at a decoration. Most of the rooms that I visited had no one else.. Read more »

Wow. A great museum! So many things to see. I spent 3 hours there and only did two out of the three floors and already then I was on a run. If you take your time in the museum, you can easily spend 5 hours or more. I have done a few museums in Munich.. Read more »

Wide variety of items on display. There is definitely something for everyone to see. The metalwork items (armors, gates, notebook covers) are impeccably beautiful. Tickets are not expensive and the museum is quite silent even on a saturday.

Very impressive and varied collections (the armoury is lovely) and the 1€ entrance on Sundays is an absolute steal. Still, I found the lack of English descriptions next to several exhibits to be quite perplexing. Not only is it strange for a mus.. Read more »

Awesome collection of ivory crafts and Meissen porcelain. Also, very old German inventions related to time and planets, etc. You can spend half day looking at all the artifacts. One bad thing is that the stairs are inevitable even for the handicapped.. Read more »

This is a great museum. It takes you through local Bavarian history with its vast collection if items ranging from weapons to pieces of art and cutlery. It has a little bit for everyone. I would not mind visiting it again.

Interesting museum to learn about the history of Munich and Bavaria. Staff is overwhelmingly polite. It took 2.5 hours to cover this museum. The armoury section was super awesome.
