In German: Der Bayerische Maximiliansorden für Wissenschaft und Kunst.
The order was first established on 28 November 1853 by King Maximilian II. von Bayern. It is awarded to acknowledge and reward excellent and outstanding achievements in the field of science and art. From 1933 onwards, with the beginning of the Nazi regime, the order was not longer rewarded. In 1980 it was reinstated by the then Minister-President of the Free State of Bavaria Franz Josef Strauß.
Since 1980 the order was awarded to 174 recipients including 24 woman. The number of living members of the order shall not exceed 100. In October 2010 there were 99 living members of the orders.
Until 1932 the order was issued 351 times. Overall the order was awarded to 525 people from 1853 to 2010.
