We wanted to visit this Museum, but we were unable to because we were not allowed to even take our expensive camera into the Museum. No photographs were allowed. We were told we had to leave our expensive camera in the clock room, which we...More

Expensive, staff constantly ask to see tickets and no photos allowed (not even without flash, as is the normal rule). Will not be coming back the next time I visit Augsburg. Staff did refund the very expensive (9 euro) when I complained and left the...More

Well presented and good to visit. Near centre of town, the last few yards being pedestrianised. Many displays of craftsmanship especially silver from 17th to 19th century. Covered courtyard with sculptures.Some stairs but with lifts. Smallish cafe and bookshop with many excellent reference books.

We knew that Augsburg was famous for their silver and Gold smiths working for all the Major European Courts and the exibitions prove the outstanding skills of These ancient craftsmen. Also the exibition of clocks and watches is impressive.

The central hall with the bronze statues is free of charge. Have a coffee break there beneath the excellent 500+ years statues. Good alternative to Rathaus square at bad weather.

From the title of the museum I assumed their would be a lot of history of Maximilian. There was some, however much of it was gorgeous furniture, statues, vessels and dishware from his era. Beautiful pieces and very interesting cultural historical items. Many rooms on...More
