In 1641, state dean Degenhart Neuchinger built the museum.
In the past, former high-ranking civil servants, chancellors of the pen, or, in later years, wood-based publishers lived in this building.
It is one of the most important and folkloric museums in Bavaria.
You can admire handmade, colourful wooden toys, handmade boxes, fine and large carvings, and flutes and crib figures in 13 different rooms.
The focus of the exhibition is the "Berchtesgadener War".
Currently, on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the death of the artist Anton Reinbolds, you can admire an exhibition of his most valuable works.
Reinbold was born in Berchtesgaden in 1881 and was a pupil of the famous Munich Academy under Peter von Halm and Herterich.
