History of the branch museum
Founded towards the end of the 11th century, the Benedictine monastery of Asbach was once the cultural and spiritual centre of the Rott Valley in Lower Bavaria. Founded in 1976, the Kulturkreis Kloster Asbach e.V., acquired and renovated the former monastery with the help of private donations and public subsidies. In 1983, the cloister and part of the former monastery building were given to the Bayerisches Nationalmuseum. One year later, the Asbach Monastery Branch Museum opened in the same premises.
