History of the branch museum
Duke Maximilian I of Bavaria had the building constructed in 1617 on the foundation walls of a previous building. During the Second World War, large parts of the architectural ensemble were destroyed. Reconstruction commenced in 1970 and was only completed in 1989. As early as 1986, a plan was developed to incorporate a branch museum of the Bayerisches Nationalmuseum into the almost entirely reconstructed palace.
