Lustheim Palace is home to the world famous Meißen Porcelain Collection of industrialist Dr. Ernst Schneider. A special focus lies on the rich diversity and ingenuity of the manufacture's early years in the mid-18th century.
The exhibition shows crockery and figurines of the Böttger period, the Chino series of the porcelain painter Johann Gregorius Höroldt, “Indian” decors as well as animal figurines by Johann Joachim Kändler. Selected highlights include the dinner service of count Sulkowski and the swan service of count Brühl. Both transcend a splendor and glory of baroque dining and festive culture.
Lustheim was built as a hunting lodge in the park of Schleißheim Palace under the reign of elector Max Emanuel between 1684 and 1688. It was designed by Henrico Zuccallis. In 1971, it was organized as a branch of the Bavarian National Museum. Since then, the precious Meißen Porcelain Collection of Dr. Ernst Schneider is accommodated there.
