  • A lovely specialised museum spread over 3 floors; fish, wild animals, fossils and a fulfilling visit as an English only speaker. Today (29 July 2017) when I went there was a dedicated area for bees, w...  more »
  • While walking through the Centre of Munich my edgy look unexpectedly stumbled upon milejshee creation-smiling all canines bronze hogtie crouched on a pedestal! Piglet-well simply to mirror shine polished many palms tourist (and maybe not only?) people. This statuesque Sus scrofa-mammal of cloven-hoofed animals, suborder svinoobraznyh (non-ruminant), suidae, located on the street Neuhauser Straße, directly opposite the German hunting and fishing Museum (Deutsches Jagd und Fischereimuseum), which once housed the Church of St. Augustine, and performs highly responsible function-contributes to financial well-being. This hogtie (Deutsches Jagd) is a work of the sculptor Martin Meyer. According to legend, if a good Pat boar snout, you can get rich as soon as possible. Well, or just find happiness. Do these two concepts are not entirely clear, but piglet from bronze Pumby polished bunch, that serves as a testament to the power of faith in the legend (or just about human greed?). The second legend States that potjorshego nose boar repeatedly grow the chances of a repeat visit to Munich. The author of these lines has proved to be the throne to tourist tales and, naturally, polirnul wild boar urylnik his mighty dlanju! Without there mercantilism is solely to "back up"! By the way, later found out that there are still kabanevicha Munich analogue in Florence, Ontario, Derby, Sydney! That to the author of this sculptural works: Martin Mayer-Berliner, sculptor, graphic artist and Illustrator. Besides numerous busts and graphics (as well as the aforementioned kabashi) created about thirty huge bronze figures for public places: the most famous of them-"pilgrims" in Speyer and Hastingues, statue of Luther in Landau and Weißenburg, Frances in Munich and Mannheim etc. Kabanjara me so much, that at night of the same day, came back to him and once again depicted his smile ...

  • The hunting Museum in Munich is housed mainly in a very interesting building. The collection itself is quite nicely done, could but occasionally more information provide for the special exhibition to bees that are up-to-date.

  • Two friends and I payed full price to enter the museum. We were given cards, but when they didn't activate the interactive exhibits, we were told that the cards we were given were fake ones, and that we didn't need the real ones because we "didn't speak enough German". Excuse me? We payed the full price but weren't allowed to experience the entire museum. They refused to refund us. Extremely rude.
  • Good for families and kids, also interesting museum for whom like wild life, animals and hunting history from ancient time.
  • Very nice museum. It has some really nice exhibits and interactive displays. One section uses ID tags to create a very personal experience that also adjust to the age of the visitors. And the kids get some places to play as well. Last but not least, it also has a very reasonable entrance fee. We will certainly come back.
  • Real stuffed animals with an area showing traditional hunting weapons
  • Interesting museum, even if you are not a fan of fishing and hunting.
