The Munich Museum is one of the most important carriage museums in the world. Located in the southern wing of the Nymphenburg Palace. The museum provides carriages, carriages, sleighs from the 17th - 19th centuries from Germany, France and England. There's even a carousel here.

Rich collections were already exhibited in the first half of the 19th century, as was the case at the Vienna court. At the end of the monarchy in 1918, about 300 carriages were made available to visitors, which were no longer fit for driving. After the monarchy, the exhibits were exhibited at the former Tennis and Riding School at Marstallplatz.

During World War II, the collection was transferred to the Nymphenburg Palace, and the museum was officially opened in 1952. You can visit here, among others carriages of King Maximilian I Józef, King Ludwig II, Prince Regent Leopold, chariot of the elector Charles Albert, two wagons serving the coronation of King Maximilian I Józef.
