#6 of 42 in Museums in Munich
Art Museum Museum
Three museums, each highlighting a different period of art, are housed at Alte Pinakothek. The museums are within walking distance of each other, so you can easily explore all three on foot or by bicycle. First, stop by one of the oldest art galleries in the country. It houses a collection of at least 800 masterpieces from the Middle Ages to the end of the Rococo period. Look for works by Durer, Rubens, and da Vinci, among others. Next, visit the gallery that displays about 400 paintings and sculptures from the 19th century. Highlights include works by Monet, Degas, and Renoir. Finally, explore the gallery opened in 2002 to display a vast collection of modern art. Here, you'll find notable pieces by Picasso, Kandinsky, and Warhol. Purchase a day ticket for all three museums online. Add Alte Pinakothek and other attractions to your Munich trip itinerary using our Munich trip itinerary planner.

  • Even though it is under construction, it is well worth visiting especially to view Durer's self-portrait, the extraordinary Rubens room, and the Brueghel. A must if one is in Munich.  more »
  • Were in the old and the new Pinakothek. Very nice place with lots of famous paintings. More all presented Rubens, is Ivan Dyck, da Vinci, Raphael. new Pinakothek course van Gogh. When compared with the Pushkin and the Hermitage, Prado, is of course the smaller collection. But still very good! In spite of the tourist season and Sunday visitors. On Sunday, the entrance to the Pinacoteca is worth one euro. But you have to have 2 euro coins or one euro to take purses to a camera store. Not allowed with any bags and backpacks.

  • If you like art and paintings, it is a staple of Munich, must see. A lot of wonderful paintings, it's interesting, well done and all eras are well represented. The painters are present. I regret that several rooms were closed during our visit, which is a pity. It's as much a tour of beautiful paintings as a dive in the heart of the story, a journey in time sublime! Good visit! ;-))

  • Limited collection, but has a few good ones to be seen Well maintained small area to house the collection
  • Excellent collection of art work by Peter Paul Reubens, Rembrandt, monat etc...
  • Sunday for only 1 Euro, really enjoy coming sunday for some inspiration
  • I would come here on Sundays when the admission is 1 euro. It's a pretty big and solid collection. But unless you have a discerning eye they pretty much all look just like flat non-dimensional Jesus pictures from the middle ages.
  • Solid arts, good paints I would definitely recommend using the toilet paper there, super fancy. Ich habe Kunst gern. 5/5 would poop there again.
