To be honest the main part of the exhibition is typically unexciting.The NSDAP exhibition is good but in now rather rendered redundant by the new Documentation Centre.

We went to visit this museum as we had a few hours to spare - could have done with a few more! We paid €4 each to see the permanent exhibitions which we thought was very reasonable. The staff were very helpful and professional. You...More

As per the previous review, if you don’t speak German it is not an issue. An audio device is included as part of your ticket and gives a very full overview and commentary about every display. Displays have numbers for the corresponding audio track so...More

I was hesitant to visit the Stadtmuseum, given variable reviews on TripAdvisor. But I really wanted to see the Nazi exhibit to see how the German and non-German views may differ. I started with the '"Typically Munich" exhibition, which some reviewers found difficult to understand...More
