In 2023, the Carriage Museum celebrates its 100th anniversary. On this occasion, the Bavarian Palace Administration invites you to a Family Day on September 17th. From 11 am to 5 pm, magnificent carriages, extraordinary sleighs, and all sorts of treasures for horse enthusiasts await children and families.
In a journey through the entire museum, young visitors can discover incredible things at many stations with the help of friendly carriage professionals: How does a sedan chair open? What do the magnificent fabrics and tassels, which are everywhere, feel like? How many bells did a single sleigh horse wear? What kind of staff was needed to set these carriages in motion - and to make them look so beautiful? Putting a bridle on a horse is worth a try, just like the final test of what it feels like to sit in such a carriage. Those who discover all this can appoint themselves as honorary Chief Stable Masters of the King!
