The first branch museum of the Bayerisches Nationalmuseum was installed in Schloss Lustheim (Lustheim Palace) in 1971 and houses the collection of Meissen porcelain donated to the State of Bavaria by Dr Ernst Schneider (1900-1977). In scope and importance, the collection is only comparable to the porcelain collection at the Zwinger in Dresden. The more than 2000 exquisite objects offer an impressive overview of the diversity of Meissen production in its heyday in the 18th century.

Impressions

The Meissen porcelain collection of the Ernst Schneider Foundation ranges from the first porcelains of the Böttger period to dishes with imaginative chinoiseries and the legendary swan service, which conveys an idea of the splendour of Baroque banqueting tables. A highlight are the large-format animal figures by the master modeller Johann Joachim Kaendler

History of the Branch Museum

Deckenfresko

In 1968, Professor Dr Ernst Schneider (1900-1977) donated his important porcelain collection to the Free State of Bavaria. With this transfer came the obligation to exhibit it in Lustheim Palace as the "Meissen Porcelain Collection Ernst Schneider Foundation". The hunting lodge and garden palace was built on the occasion of Elector Max Emanuel's marriage to the Habsburg emperor's daughter Maria Antonia in 1685. Located on the eastern edge of Schleißheim Park, it was extensively renovated for use as a branch museum.
