  • 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 and this is by far my favorite.
  • A true gem in the center of the city that helps tourist and locals understand a bit more of the history of Bavaria and the surrounding areas. A nice place to see pottery, weapons, jewellery, sculptures, religious artifacts, etc. Plus on Sunday the cost of entrance is only 1€.
