  • Feel the fun exhibition themed, focusing on life history of each continent, tools, habits, etc.. Was surprised that more than it has this kind of Museum in Munich.

  • We were there on Sunday, as a 4-member family. The price is really unbeatable (1 euro per adult on Sundays), otherwise you would have to think I pay 5 euros. When receiving noticed same time unpleasantly, that we had to give the backpack. That was full of children and baby clothes, is here apparently don't care. Times on all cases, also a negative point that here only over steps to get in (with baby strollers so difficult) - supposedly there is a barrier-free entrance, but we haven't found him, not to the go out. The museum itself is a collection of various things, and here is that everything seems to be quite "UNORDERED". There's no red thread from room to room. Often there are many findings that are quite similar (E.g. war masks from Oceania), but everything is very briefly explained and also somehow strange diced together (E.g. ancient artefacts as well as modern art). Maybe we missed that, but we haven't found anything to 'Europe' in the entire Museum! Or was it just very well hidden. In any case, mislays the name here. There are however also positive things. Some rooms offer extra displays (for example, a nice fairy tale in the Oriental part or a walk-in "Indian cave" with a screen in it) for children. But this is sorely needed, because otherwise it would be them slightly boring. Also, it is questionable whether all exhibits are ideal for children's eyes - for example, you can see a mask that is made of a monkey skull without warning. Nevertheless, some of the exhibits are quite interesting... with more information they were but probably even more interesting. Overall, the infrastructure is not perfect. Partly the toilets were closed, on Sunday the top Café was closed (so that you even can sit down to feed a baby, if you don't do it in the showrooms) and we have not found the baby room. Average as overall rating. On Sundays, you can come here in any case. On other days I would think about really good there.

  • Such a poor exhibition and so expensive for what it is. I travel lots and I go to museums all over the world but this one I won't come back. There's better things to do in Munich if you want to learn....  more »

  • It's a smaller museum but for only 5 euro, it's a great way to spend a few hours, especially if you enjoy Buddhist statuary. Very quiet when I visited, and they had lockers for luggage/coats for an additional 1euro.
  • The statue of Buddha on the stairs up to the exhibit makes the visit worthwhile. Breathtaking.
  • Excelent ethnographic museum, very interesting!
  • Great overview of different cultures, lot's of inspiration and we also enjoyed to draw on one of the drawing chairs!
  • Super interesting exhibition! If one is travelling in Munich and thought about which Museum to visit, this must be definitely on the list.
