The trench warfare exhibit stopped my children compelling them to want to hold hands. It was memorable (and really not scary; however, it surprised them). The museum tells the history well (descriptions are only in German).

Traveled to Ingolstadt specifically to see this museum. Its displays are definitely dated and only in German. No attempt to provide English, French, etc. Needs a serious overhaul to add languages and technology.

I thought the museum was nice to learn how the military of Bavaria evolved over time. Young children were interested but only for 30 minutes or so.

Well organized and run museum with a very good collection of artifacts. In October 2015 the special exhibit was on Napoleon and Bavaria. Interesting way to learn about the complicated history of the period. Many original items that are rarely seen were on display. Museum...More

I travelled by train from Munich.....about 40 minutes to the northern station, then by bus which drops you outside. Hundreds of hotels in Munich to sort any pocket.
