  • A very large collection of famous artists, we recommend you take the audioguide and stock up on free time, because we spent about three hours in the gallery.

  • Those who are interested in old-time, comes here at his own expense. A very large, impressive inventory, in part already centuries old. Bring your time!

  • A stunning gallery. Place where you can go several times and still will not be able to cover. As in most places better to plan ahead what you would like to see. Guided tour is one of the best options.
  • Great historic place. Very beautiful inside and outside. Perfect air con working, it helped us a lot when it was 36*C. Amazing Michelangelo’s exhibit and of course, the famous Madonna Sistina by Raphael. Price of tickets is little high (19€ for one adult person, 27€ for two adults) but for students 9€ Worth а visit!
  • A wonderful collection of art from the 17th and 18th centuries. Here you will find artists from Germany, Holland, Italy and more. This is really a must see. Don't forget about the combination tickets, which will save you a lot of money if you plan to see several museums.
  • Beautiful pictures, kind and rather learned personnel around. Sometimes I had an impression the objets need more space: other rooms must be dedicated for this tresour.
  • One of the world's great collections. It will be even better later in 2018 when they open the galleries now closed for renovation. There's an amazing group of large paintings by Veronese that should be much better known, the peerless van Eyck triptych, lots of Cranachs and Durers, many fine Dutch paintings, the Sistine Madonna, and much, much more. I just wish they had a better book about the collection. Not to be missed!
