Your visit to the Museum

Discover the history of the Bavarian royal family within 16 exhibition rooms located on two floors, which are accessible by stairs and elevators. Original exhibits and modern museum technology transfer you to a former era. For example, the already-planned but never realized castle projects of King Ludwig II appear in computer animation on a large screen. Throughout the exhibition you will find seating and resting benches, such as at our 21-meter panorama window, offering a special view of Hohenschwangau Castle, the lake Alpsee and the surrounding mountains.
Portable folding chairs can be rented free of charge at the entrance to the exhibition rooms.
