I ordered a soup of the day, they told me the Bavarian name of the soup and then I agreed: great error! The soup was a typical bavarian dish that I found horrible , so much that I left it aside (even in front of me, where I could not smell it). Noone , no single waiter, came to ask... More

We scoped this out on things to do in Munich and thought it was very appropriate. It's easy to get your hopes up since Oktoberfest and beer in Munich have a huge reputation. While this museum might be in a historically significant building and contain historically and nicely arranged memorabilia, it was a bit of a let-down. The path through... More

Lot's of small rooms with nothing to see. Few dozens of beer mugs and that's all. Family ticket for 6 euro. Waste of time.

As museums go, this was very disappointing; it was closer to a private collection of beer steins with photos and a few other pieces of memorabilia together with a short, 12-minute, film. Spread over several floors of this old building, it also lacked a clear flow and certainly wasn't worth the 4 euros entrance fee. The museum rating was poor.... More

We read the good reviews and decided to visit this museum as it is close to Marienplatz. It turned out to be very disappointing. Old beer mugs and photos in a very strange location. Didn't feel it was worth the time.

Exceptional quality price for Munich. Had a lovely dinner with a really good schnitzel the bavarian way with some beers came back a second time the diner area was reserves still had some beers. Everything lovely, except the staff that we had didn't match the overall quality.

This is not just a museum but a bust pub. Beer is still brewed in the bowels of the building and here we learned on our beer tour how to properly toast in Bavaria. Lots of fun and very friendly patrons.

So disappointed in our experience. We paid a lot of money for nothing. The only thing that was really included in our package was accommodation (not even breakfast) plus an outfit we wore the first day. Oktoberfest is free so still trying to figure out what we actually paid for. If I was going to do Oktoberfest again, I would... More

This is not your normal museum. To start with it’s tucked away in a side-street near the main square and the entrance is through a bar. According to the tourist office leaflet it’s only open afternoons Tuesday to Saturday and the pub and restaurant doesn’t open until the museum closes at 6pm. The Saturday in August that we visited, the... More
