  • We came here hoping to learn more about the history of Munich. The signs are in German, so they have an English booklet they hand out with numbers that correspond to exhibits, as well as an English au...  more »
  • I visited the Museum with my 7 year old daughter. She loved it. The fact that you always back in between can try out the instruments themselves, there is never a dull moment and remains interesting. The doll exhibition is amazing! The dolls are but sometimes quite beautifully creepy :-). So we went to the Museum since it was cold out there, yes it has even started to snow. Therefore, this was our bad weather programme. The visit was really worth and my daughter says today that she would like to visit the Museum again soon.

  • We went to see the exhibit about Nazi era. We had a hard time finding the section because you have to go outside and enter through a back door. 🙄 When we finally found it, it was fantastic. Our audio guide was easy to use and we spent over 2 hours in this part of the museum. The Typically Munich section didn’t interest us so we walked through quickly. I went upstairs to the puppet/carnival section but just whipped through because it was a bit creepy to me. It was dark, there were only about 3 other people in this section and some of the things come to life when you walk past.
  • It has 4 permanent collections that are truly complete. The people that work there and the attention given is awesome.
  • This is a lovely museum! You learn a lot about the most important Munich buildings and traditions. It is very big, I spend about 3 hours there and was not able to finish the whole exhibition.
  • Best place to learn about the history in Munich. Audio guide. Also features a permanent exhibit of the '3rd Reich' and changing art exhibitions.
  • Excellent (and spine-chilling) exhibition on the rise of Nazism in Munich. Also a good exhibition of musical instruments
