Bayerisches Nationalmuseum (Bavarian National Museum) in Munich

Such a wonderful place to visit here (in Munich, Germany) - Bavarian National Museum.
It is very interesting cultural history museum was founded by king Maximilian II of Bavaria in 1855. 
You can easily find it - near English garden, 5-10 min by feet from U5-Lehel station (Prinzregentenstra├če 3). On Sundays it cost just 1 euro :)
The museum building with beautiful architecture  by Gabriel von Seidl 1894-1900.
Here are a few photos made by me, enjoy!



































I was impressed by the remarkable collection of ceramic and porcelain dishes, fine work and bright colors.



































The museum exhibits gold works, textiles, glass art, interesting old costume collection. In addition the museum has a wonderful collection of sculptures.


































I love stained glass, in this museum there were many. Very well-designed exhibition of lighted stained glass in a dark room.


































For boys it will be interesting here too - a large collection of weapons and armor.
