  • Take tons of time! Such a beautiful museum with tons to see. For young children (10 or under) the toy museum is a must see. They have free tours every two hours to show the highlights of the museum as well. Highly recommend. I feel like you would need a week to see everything!
  • What a rich and diverse collection of antiques!! The jewelry from back then is so extensively laid out 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼 The fabric industry produced such quality clothes.. What a wonderful surprise !! The paintings, sculptures, clothes, music instruments from back then... It just took me through a journey to some other place... I would visit this place again.... 😅 Highly recommended to museum lovers.
  • Much larger than it looks from the outside. You could easily spend a day there. There is a lot to see from over the history of Germany. We'll worth the entrance.
  • Very beautiful place with a mixture of ancient, contemporary and prehistoric arts and handicrafts. You will not get bored visiting the museum halls enriched with vast knowledge in the field of arts. The regular visitor fee is 8 euros and is to be paid at the front desk. No bags are allowed inside and if you have any then it has to be kept in a separate locker room. The staff was friendly and informative. This is a highly recommended place to visit in my opinion.
  • It was closed every time I visited. Outside looks very promising. The vibe is intense and I was approach by catholic missionaries outside the building, and they could not let me go.
