Bayerisches Nationalmuseum - Bavarian National Museum


The Bavarian National Museum is located in the Prinzregentenstrasse, in the Lehel district of Munich. The art and cultural-historical collection of the Museum have achieved international recognition and is, in big parts, the main possession of the Wittelsbach family. The exhibition of the Bavarian National Museum shows art and craft from Late Antiquity to Art Nouveau in the 19th Century.

Solely judging by the building with its numerous extensions and new parts it seem writing cultural history. Being established in 1867, the foundation of the museum was commissioned by King Maximilian II. Because of the lack of space, another new building had been comissioned at the Prinzregentenstrasse about 30 years later. The design comes from the architect Gabriel Seidl and connects the three architectural styles of the German Renaissance, the Baroque and the Rocco. In 1937, another wing of the building in the south-eastern part of foundation followed. The new building on Himbsel and Oettingerstraße was established in 1990 and since then has space for museum workshops and a restoration studio.
