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

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 Maximillianmuseum is in the heart of the historic district. It illustrates the industry (mostly the middle ages) in Augsburg. I recommend going to this museum and then to the Fuggerei. Give the Maximillian an hour at least and walk through to see what Augsburg...More

The Maximilianmuseum was far more than the pleasant morning's diversion I was expecting. From the moment one enters the beautiful 500 year old building, it's hard to find anything UNinteresting in sight. Even the doors and window latches are lovely. There are so many excellent...More

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
