Don´t waste your time with the exhibition. Just some minor stuff. If Barbier-Muller wants some help I can throw it away for him.
The catalogue is 35,00 EUR in german.

Great Book to the collection which i can recommend.
Its very huge and thick and in german language.
There are not so many books about Japanese armour in german language so i think it is worth to take it.

I got rather excited about seeing this until some feedback came my way which suggested it would be a disappointment. It's not the whole BM collection either, rather a travelling showcase, therefore limited.
If you are in Germany then I guess its worth the drop-in visit but compared to the outstanding Samurai Art Museum why visit BM? Peter Janssen is building his collections on an ongoing basis, so there's always a reason the re-visit the museum to see new additions. So for BM, I'm going to skip and save my money.

I would not compare both collections. Take them as two opportunities to see high-end Japanese armor. And enjoy it.
You can find roundabout 2/3 of the collection here: https://www.nihontop...barbier-mueller
