Dr. Schneider Porcelain Collection

A branch of the National Bavarian Museum is today housed in the former ballrooms of Lustheim Palace in the grounds of Schleissheim Castle. It contains the largest collection of 18th century Meissen porcelain outside Dresden, donated by industrialist Prof. Dr. Ernst Schneider. In the splendour of Lustheim castle the delicate pieces unfold all their beauty and tell of the economical and non-material importance of the „White Gold“ to Europe’s baroque courts.
