Overview
More
Situated at Amberg's most idyllic square, the historic "Klösterl" ("little convent") - a building which dates back to the 14th century and is aptly titled "Engelsburg" ("angel's castle") - offers a unique showroom space on three levels (around 700 square meters) all dedicated to the subject of air ... Apart from permanent exhibitions you can also enjoy talks, readings, guided tours and concerts. On the ground floor there are temporary exhibitions on design, architecture, technology as well as special and everyday art. The AIR MUSEUM was founded as a private initiative at the beginning of 2006 and is financed by donations and air helpers. Guided tours during or after our opening hours are offered. Bookings required 14 days in advance via online booking.

My wife and I initially thought we were visiting a museum associated with the German Luftwaffe. Not quite. This museum deals with air - devices, paintings, etc. related to air. Be prepared for something unexpected. If you have some spare time in Amberg, it is...More

This is a bit of an eccentric collection of art, so be prepared. It is all related to air somehow, but interpreted in various ways, so you never know what to expect on the next floor. Some of it is pretty, some is confusing, and...More
