The inside of this museum worth a visit but nothing fantastic except some robes on display. Like many German museums you have to leave all bags in lockers at entrance. Fee returnable.

The good news here is that you can come and go as your day allows giving you adequate time to take in all that there is to learn here. An audio device is included in your ticket, so, take it and use as you want.

If you are interested in History you can club this place with your visit to two iconic castles. But keep this towards the end of your tour. Audio guide is available in various languages and is very helpful.

We toured the museum of the Bavarian Kings after visiting both castles and wish we had visited it first. The details presented put everything at the castles in a different light and we appreciated being able to learn more.
