  • Very beautiful museum. The audio-guide isbm very complet. The piece in tye exposition are very well explained in every languages thank to the audio-guide. And for once the visite let the freedom to spend as much time as you want in every place. The full history of the bavarian kings is explained. The museum has the cold air foe the summer.... Bit as the castle . It is a bit expensive according to the rest of the Germany.
  • An interesting.place. After visiting both the nearby castles, it provided a good respite from the crowds which flock to the site. Word of advice. Prebook your tickets to avoid the long queues to see the castles. I booked in advance and had my ticket within 10mins of arrival, which saved me heaps of time from just having to stand there and wait to be served.
