Bier- und Oktoberfestmuseum, Munich

3.6
#18 of 50 in Museums in Munich
To get more familiar with two important aspects of Bavarian culture, pay a visit to Bier- und Oktoberfestmuseum. Inside Munich's oldest townhouse, a heritage-protected building from 1340, the museum explains the production of beer and the evolution of the culture surrounding it. Memorabilia from Oktoberfest celebrations over the years, as well as many photos, help illustrate the history of this great tradition. After your visit, enjoy some typical Bavarian cuisine in the restaurant, accompanied--of course--by a beer. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Munich holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Bier- und Oktoberfestmuseum and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • I was quite excited to see the museum to find an endless collection of beer glasses and pictures of the Oktoberfest. The educational value is zero and the visit was rather boring. Apparently the museu...  more »
  • Museum purpose lies a 5-minute walk from the Marienplatz square. Usually in October, Munich, crowded as hotel reservations can not be tourists. But here all year round, for "Oktoberfest" beer from ancient history as soon as possible.

  • Small museum that exploits his position near the Marienplatz, to promote the celebration of beer in Bavaria. Indifferent.

  • Cool little place. Not worth going massively out of the way for it, but worth a look in if you are looking for something off the beaten track. It's a funny building with a small but rather interesting exhibit about Oktoberfest and the local beer. Have a nice beer downstairs afterwards too.
  • Cute little museum with an amazing Bavarian restaurant next door. Delicious food and, of course, great beer. A real German atmosphere, highly recommend!
  • If your looking for great beer, food and beer history & trivia then this is the place for you.
  • Being students, we paid €2.5 per person. That is next to nothing, but I still don't recommend this place especially if it means that you have to change your route or if you have limited time in the city. Couple of old mugs, some brass taps with no explanatory text whatsoever, and some paintings... Some of the information over the displays didn't even have an English translation. It was a big letdown. You can have a beer at the downstairs pub and we did that. Just have a beer & skip the museum if it's on your way. Oh, the wifi is staff-only btw :)
  • Love this place. Must visit for everyone.
