The Haus der Bayerischen Geschichte has been on the go throughout Bavaria with exhibitions since 1976 and, on a regular basis, since 1983. Bavarian State Exhibitions, which draw over 100,000 visitors under this brand every year for a span of six months, are a flagship and an established part of the Bavarian calendar of cultural events. The Bavarian State Exhibition “Götterdämmerung: King Ludwig II” shown in Herrenchiemsee New Palace in 2011 is the frontrunner. 575,000 visitors made it the most successful cultural-historical exhibition in Germany since reunification. Some 2.5 million people have seen the Bavarian State Exhibitions in the ten years from 2005 to 2015 alone.
