It's always a bonus to visit this stylish museum when the sun is out, as it is situated at beautiful Lake Starnberg, but seeing the current exhibits is worth the 45 - 60 minute car ride from Munich center any time.

Tucked away in this charming village of a thousand violins is this beautiful museum highlighting the rich history of their string instruments heritage.
All signage was in English as well as German (fantastic for a small museum!) and plenty of string instruments (not just violins) were showcased throughout the building.
Dokumentation Obersalzberg Berchtesgaden

If you are visiting the Eagles Nest as part of a tour, please give yourself enough time to do this fascinating and informative museum justice.

Konig Ludwig II.-Museum Herreninsel
#25 of 192 Museums in Upper Bavaria
If you buy a ticket to do the tour the museum is included so I would definitely recommend doing it; the tour provides the broad details of the opulence that Ludwig created, but the museum really explains why.
The museum open hours coordinate with palace hours (so depend on season) but open daily.
