Bavarian National Museum

Impressive building/collections

Founded on Prinzregentenstrasse on the initiative of Bavarian King Maximilian II in 1855, this impressive castlelike building houses one of Europe's most important museums of decorative arts. The Bayerisches Nationamuseum's first floor is devoted more to pictoral artworks from the Middle Ages onward, by artists such as Erasmus Grasser and Adam Krafft. On the second floor you'll find its well known collections of porcelain and ivory, along with watches and inlaid marquetry. The third has among other things the world's most significant collection of Christmas crèches, many created in the 15th and 16th centuries.
