Comfortably situated in the City center the museum offer a splendid idea about Bavarias wild-life. Apart from that it gives you an overview of hunting and fishing here, in history as well as nowadays. The exhibitions are well maintained, well described and nicely set for the visitor.

If you're a hunter or fisher this museum is for you! The people that work there are extremely nice. The lady gave us a postcard for visiting. None of the stuff is translated in English. But for the most part you don't need it.

This is an extremely well designed museum for hunters from other countries like myself to enjoy. It takes a hunter to appreciate the subject matter related about the outdoors. It was great to see the hunting practices from some place other than my own. The history of this hunting region was awesome. Come enjoy the local Hunting History my friends.... More

This museum is very central to the Munich market platz. It contains stuffed animals, birds and fish and many artefacts going back hundreds of years. I know that some people may find stuffed animals not to their taste but it is a wonderful way to see what many of the creatures look like up close. There were some really interesting... More

I get very sad when I see dead animals on display as trophies. There are bronzes of animals very life like. This is the way it should be done rather than using actual dead and stuffed animals. Overall interesting but sad.

Visited this museum since I am a hunter. There were some animals stuffed there and some historical guns.Some fish exhibitions as well (not live fish) I had expected the exhibitions to be more varied for such a big museum. You could deposit for a card where you could hear some explanations or presentations on several flatscreens around the museum with... More
