  • I liked the section on the building history of Munich. The arts and crafts collections aren't that special though, that is, if you've been to lots of similar museums in Europe before (like I have). Do not expect new in-depth information, just some examples of clothing, musical instruments, Jugendstil, etc.
  • Good synthesis about the Bavarian artistic stiles. From 1200 to 1800 and over. Recommended
  • Amazing collection of 17th and 18th century art, sculptures. Definitely worth the price of admission. We went on Thursday for 7 euros each adult, children are free.
  • Collection is OK, ticket price is VERY affordable. Only problem is that most of the exhibition seems to be in German only, not tourist friendly without guilde.
  • A very interesting visit. We went on a Sunday so tickets were only 1 euro a person which was a steal for the size of this museum. We went during the holidays so they had the nativity scenes open which was also pretty interesting.
