I don't know what all these other reviews expected but this museum is definitely only for German language speakers. There is an English audio guide available, however only about 1% of the exhibitions are featured in the audio guide. Whole rooms just come up on...More

Interesting, very informative about Munster and the city's fascinating history. Possibly aimed more toward locals/ German visitors as translations for the exhibits are only available on a card in the corner of each room. A good option if you have a couple of hours to...More
