Unflinchingly honest and interesting account of Munich’s role in the rise of Nazism and during the Third Reich – and afterwards. Interpretive displays are in German and English. It’s worth taking the time to read the detailed panels in the middle of each room.

You are right next to Hitlers office and this is an modern amazing experience, take a complementary chair you’ll need it. Allow at least 2 hours to take it all in. The cafe is good downstairs although cash only. The exhibition is fantastic
