Housed in a 15th-century armory, this museum chronicles Munich’s history and the everyday lives of its residents. The one must-see exhibit is the Moriskentanzer (Moorish dancers), featuring ten carved and brightly painted 15th-century wooden figures. The second-floor photo museum traces the early history of the camera back to 1839. On the third-floor there’s a historic collection of marionettes and hand puppets and a gallery of fairground art, which includes the oldest-known carousel horses, dating from 1820. A cafeteria in the museum’s main courtyard is open daily 10am to midnight.
