The National Socilaism exhibition, in a separate and suitably darkened building, was a good alternative to the personal walking tour we missed and, judging by some of the other walking tour reviews, more balanced and informative. The exhibition is chronological with introductory panels to each...More

We run into this and decided to enter and it was really worth it ! Small , quaint , with friendly staff ! Even if you don't actually visit, just go in the entrance hallway to see the big model of early era Munich !
