  • This museum shows a lot of behind the scenes work relating to the Passion Play. There are also beautiful examples of woodcarving and works of art in paper done by local artists. There are exhibits from previous Passion Plays, such as clothing, props and even hair! Tip: if you show your Passion Play ticket, you get 50% off your museum entrance fee. The museum is on multiple floors so be careful going up and down the stairs. It is located in the centre of Oberammergau - a large blue building, you cannot fail to see it!
  • A relatively small museum, about half an hour does it justice, providing historic background on the village and local area and the Passion Play. It must be a difficult task to come up new methods of presentation of a relatively static source of material, but that has been neatly achieved by many exhibits, and the building itself, being literally swathed in material. A winning final touch, as one completes the visit, is being presented with a swatch of the material as a keepsake
