The history of golf comes alive in a heritage-listed townhouse in the heart of Regensburg, just a stone´s throw from the Cathedral. You will experience an unforgettable journey through the history of golf from the Middle Ages to the Modern Era. More than 1200 exhibits and rarities have been collected together worldwide, wherever the Anglo-Saxons left their traces, tastefully presented and atmospherically illuminated in medieval vaults of an old patrician house. Beside a variety of multimedia shows including a kids corner the curator of the golf museum and golf historian Peter Insam also offers daily guided museum tours.

I have been to Regensburg many times and knew of this place in wandering around and had always wanted to "pop in" and review the collection gathered here. Who would have thought to find such a place in a non-golfing outpost! I live in Scotland...More

This was soooo worth the 5E to get in. Peter has the best collection of golf memorabilia and historical artifacts in the World. Not knowing where the small winding staircase would lead, the result was amazing. Nestled below the streets of Regensburg, perhaps one of...More

Located in the basement of an upscale antique shop in historic Regensberg. Peter Insam gives an overview of his museum and then allows you to browse at your leisure taking in some of the most interesting golf memorabilia in the world.
