This is art and history museum is one of Germany’s oldest. The connection here was started in 1803 when Napoleon and Chaptal donated paintings to the city. The collection, though not the most popular, is extremely well presented. That alone makes the museum worthwhile. The collections are divided as follows:
- The prehistoric and Roman department – a 23000 year old statue.
- Prince Johann Georg Collection - Byzantine and Egyptian relics.
- The medieval department.
- The Renaissance painting department.
- Baroque paintings, sculptures and furniture.
- 18th and 19th century paintings - contains one painting by Pablo Picasso.

Magnificent collection organized by historical period and theme. I don't have a basis of comparison against other European galleries, but the baroque section was unlike anything I've seen at many major US city museums. Well worth the trip.
It was good for people who likes the history. Lots of paintings, statues. They offer route guide map and there are cloak rooms also.
The main reason I went was to view an exhibition of a group of artists who specialize in Urban landscapes. This was in connection with an art course the Museum was sponsoring.
Nice Disney exhibit. A little pricey...but enjoyable if you like Disney.
