Deutsches Theatermuseum, Munich's first museum dedicated to the history of theater was inaugurated in 1910. The collection is a bequest of Clara Ziegler (1844-1909), a famous Bavarian court actress, who gathered the pieces in her villa in the English Garden. The house was destroyed by bombs in 1944, and the museum was relocated to the Hofgartenarkaden after the War. In 1979, the museum was taken over by the Bavarian state and a collection of posters, costumes, records and photographs were added, as was a Richard Wagner collection (the second largest in the world after Bayreuth). There is no permanent exhibition, but regular temporary exhibitions.
