MUCA Museum of Urban and Contemporary Art in München
Not dusty at all!

Nowhere in Germany are there as many museums as in Bavaria. In more than 1,300 houses throughout Bavaria, visitors can experience expertly and excitingly staged collections on history and art, science, crafts, and customs

Museum networks for culture lovers

Bavaria's museums offer an exceptionally colourful and rich variety of topics. It ranges from hat making to ceramics, from beer to grain, from knights and Romans to the Renaissance. Everything that has to do with Bavaria can be found there.

Young and old, experts and novices alike will find exciting, stimulating and beautiful as well as amusing and entertaining things here. And often real surprises as well.

To help with orientation, around 80 of these museums have joined together to form networks, each with a specific theme. Follow the thread and let the networks guide you. On Roman-Bavarian history, for example, on expressionism in Bavaria or on glassblowing and comic language.
