The Reichsstadtmuseum (The Imperial City Museum) houses collections of furniture, paintings, sculpture, crafts and more.  The building used to be a 13th-century Dominican nunnery. It's most famous piece is a 3.5 liter tankard (more than 6 pints) which is purportedly the tankard that Bürgermeister Nusch drank in one draft saving the town from destruction in the Thirty Years' War (1631).
