Munich has more museums and art galleries than any visitor could possibly hope to see in a month. The city’s more than 80 museums range from massive state-run facilities, with rich collections of antiquities and artwork, to smaller attractions.
The Residenz is an extravagant palace complex and at any one time around 90 of its luxuriously decorated rooms may be open to the public. It’s a lot to see, but it’s undoubtedly well worth the visit. Stunning frescoes, majestic tapestries, and works of art reflect the power and wealth of the Bavarian monarchs over the centuries.
Bavarian National Museum
Housed in an attractive historic building opened in 1910, the Bavarian National Museum (Bayerisches Nationalmuseum) was founded in 1855 by King Maximilian II of Bavaria.Throughout its history, it has become one of the best decorative art museums in Europe.
Opened in 2009, the Brandhorst Museum in Munich is home to more than 1200 pieces of modern art housed in a striking building covered in colorful ceramic tiles.
Located in the historic city arsenal and stables, both buildings from the Gothic period, the Museum of the City of München, or Münchner Stadtmuseum in German, is dedicated to telling the city’s history from its foundation in the Middle Ages to life in the modern metropolis today.
