The Empress Elisabeth Museum is located in the former royal railway station in Possenhofen, now the Possenhofen suburban railway station (S6) at the East Exit. It was founded in 1998 and is based on the collction assembled by Mr. and Mrs. Heinemann. Today it is owned by the municipality of Poecking and constitutes part of the international Sisi Road. Since being renovated, the Museum now shines in new splendour. On the ground floor of the historic railway station dating from 1865, there are two major subject areas:
King Ludwig II. and the history of the railway station.
In the right section of the station, there is a shop selling souvenirs and specialist literature. The exhibition area is dedicated to the memory of King Ludwig II. and the history of the railway station. Video presentations provide information about the major historical topics, after which visitors can view extensive pictorial documentation on the life of the Empress.
Empress Elizabeth collection
This collection is presented as a permanent exhibition in King Ludwig II.'s magnificently decorated waiting salon and the appertaining anteroom. It comprises mementoes of the Empress and documentary pictorial material relating to the Emperor and Empress. Pictures and sculptures show Empress Elizabeth and her family at various stages of their lives. An outstanding feature of this small Empress Elizabeth Museum, unique in Germany, are the voluntary guides with in-depth knowledge who conduct visitors individually or in groups. In this way the visit to the museum becomes a remarkable experience.
