  • The Museum has a perspective, but now seems to be a little boring. Audio guide, at least in the English language was just tiring, I felt as if someone wyczytywał the following paragraphs from the encyclopedia. By this very engaging for me the history of the Bavarian Kings. The Museum is not large, but the tour can take a really long time. Can someone refine soon more interesting, less information in audioguide'ach. It can also could add several other languages-come here for a lot of tourists from all over the world. An additional downside was that one hour before closing, Mr. "custodian" urged us to go out, because in another part of the Museum was supposed to be private. I believe that this is the public not treated.
