The old castle is impressive. The museum was under renovation when we visited October 2018.
The display of old swords and weapons was still great. There is very little English labels. The 1866 war display was great.
This review covers a long planned trip to Ingolstadt to visit the Bavarian Army Museum.
The collection in the Tilly's Redoubt is probably the single best WWI museum I have ever visited, rivaling what I remember of the Imperial War Museum's collection. Of course it...More
I just visited, or actually wanted to visit this museum, but it was a total fail. I wanted to visit the whole museum, and my friend only the first part, in the castle. We asked the Helga at the tickets, what kind of tickets we...More
The trench warfare exhibit stopped my children compelling them to want to hold hands. It was memorable (and really not scary; however, it surprised them). The museum tells the history well (descriptions are only in German).

Mr Woodhouse. I am a military historian, a Subject Expert at Oxford University.... it sounds as if you have a very valuable collection both in the material itself and financially if you were to sell them. Be very careful as to those who contact you and wish to see the documents. I have a colleague at the National Bavarian Library in Munich who may be able to help....but this is not the correct venue for exchanging contact details. Dr Stephen Bull at The Museum of Lancashire , Preston is also a colleague and friend, explain your issue and he will put you in contact with me.
