The City Museum has a lot of different exhibitions, but the two I enjoyed the most were the Nazi materials and the history of Munich’s development as a city. The Nazi exhibition is not all that big, but the quality is excellent. I can’t think of another place that would have these sort of artifacts. It is somewhat focused on the Nazi period in Munich – since it was the “Captial of the Movement” that’s not a bad thing. They do it very well – figure about 60-90 minutes for an average person to see the exhibition.
The history of Munich’s development is also an interesting exhibition. There are many models of old Munich to look at and you can see how the old city walls and gates were laid out. There is a ton of material here, but most of it will only casually interest the average tourist. Still, it’s worth a quick walk through if you plan on visiting the Nazi exhibition in the neighboring building.over 6 years ago
