This museum's somewhat quaint name may suggest a certain parochialness, or alternatively, provincial braggadocio, but nothing could be further from the truth! For anybody interested in medieval (beginning with late antique) and modern (European) sculpture and applied arts, this is a place not to be missed. Its collections boast an ample number of top rate works in a variety of genres. And at least when this writer was there last, in early April, the place was anything but overrun.

The collection of furniture and religious art was so well lit and presented, I was there almost by myself and felt a part of the culture.

Whilst not really looking to have a museum experience, the museum building was worth coming to see purely for its appearance.

Beautiful building on the outside but really rude person at the ticket office. As we did not have any cash with us and we are still on an ongoing pandemic, where lots of other museums ask people to pay by card or buy tickets online, we wanted to pay by card. He was visibly very bothered and asked 'you want to pay by card for 2 euros?!'. There is no limit displayed anywhere so that was not the issue. Also, they don't accept credit cards anyway, so it was a contactless EC card, pretty much like money. He just had to move to get the card machine.
Eventually, we decided to leave anyway because after buying the tickets we were told that we had to leave our bags (very small sling bags nothing big) and umbrella in a locker. Obviously, the lockers need euro coins and the umbrella was too big anyway... Can't even understand why you need to have coins that you take back anyway instead of some token system or just key...Given our previous experience at the ticket office, we did not even try to see if there was any way to solve this... The process of getting in had already spoiled the whole experience. There are plenty other places to visit in Munich. We went to the Residenz.

Excellent museum with interesting changing exhibitions. Beautiful building with lovely garden. This exhibition was very good. It’s great value and worth a stop on the way to the English garden.

For myself anyway, I was expecting more of a history type museum, detailing how the region and culture developed. Instead, this is more of a cultural museum, with bits and pieces of Bavarian culture for the past say 400 years or so. Not a bad thing really, but looking at clothes, pianos, furniture, carvings , etc from that era...although for many not a bad thing...for me didnt hit the spot. Further had some issues finding number to pair with the audio guide, and unless you can read German (not me) quite a number of the descriptions are of no help.

we visited on a Sunday - so the entrace charge was only Euro 1 (one) - same is true for a number of Munich museums

loved the variety and quality of thousands of exhibits (furniture / pottery & porcelain / silver to name a few) all seemingly in excellent condition and many of whicjh we were able to approach very closely (unlike many museums nowadays)

small (parochial) quibble - whilst perhaps 2/3rds of the exhibits had german + english descriptuion, the other 1/3rd was german only; not sure why such a distinction??!!

This is a small museum with some very focused exhibits on the decorative arts from the Middle Ages through the late 1800s. There are rooms and rooms full of ceramics, silver, religious objects, and other objects of decorative arts. I especially liked the rooms devoted to ivory and wood carved objects. You can truly get a feel for how the other half (more like the upper 10%) lived in previous centuries with all the jewel-bedecked chests, ornate religious objects, and over-the-top silver dinner services. My only "complaint" was that the signage was mixed in being helpful, and the layout a bit confusing. While I wouldn't put this museum up in the "must-sees" of Munich, I would say that if you have some extra time, you will not be disappointed by spending that time in this museum.
