  • This is a traditional museum: everything written in German, just an audioguide with some explanations in English, no interactive documentation. Nonetheless, it was a nice experience. We appreciated es...  more »
  • Used audio guide for great tour and education about their Nativity collection; it is fabulous! Also saw 3D Brueghel creation-very cool! 
  • The birth of Christ and go to the right from the entrance of the exhibition was followed. I thought the same motif, so little if a change occurs. But it was exhibited this time, and so the impression quite intense. In large buildings, normally around! and doing work, but didn't want to be around you to saw the remaining exhibition from the entrance of the return left. Because the route was not clearly written, almost got lost on the way. Little visitors to Nice is good, and. That put luggage in the lockers (€2), money will come back. That visit takes about 10 minutes from the entrance to the right and then to the staff and stop, go into the locker? I poured the first intact.

  • 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.
