The Bayerisches Nationalmuseum on the Prinzregentenstrasse in Munich is one of the largest museums in Germany. It displays exceptional art from late antiquity up to art nouveau as well as a unique take on European cultural history in Bavaria. Apart from the considerable permanent collections the museum also displays regular studio exhibitions as well as special exhibitions with prestigious loaned works.

  • Bags, backpacks or suitcases – up to a size that meets our device for measuring bags – that have been inspected by the staff may be carried in the museum without restriction. Items such as bags, which exceed our device for measuring bags, must be deposited in the lockers located at
