#6 of 50 in Museums in Munich
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.

  • Despite the fact that the Museum is currently being renovated, there was no inconvenience to visitors. Magnificent selection and location. Struck the lack of visitors. This riddle ponder so far.

  • From what work was on display, I could tell that the museum had an impressive collection, especially a lot of Rubens. Unfortunately, maintenance to the building meant literally half of the art was mad...  more »

  • I used to live in Munich for years. It is always great feeling to visit the museums in Munich. Alte Pinakothek has very rich collections. I have always different surprise when visit it again and again. from Y1300 or earlier to Contemporary nowadays.....you can only say Wow...... But don't forget to enjoy a coffee around the corner. You will sometimes hear the discussion about the ART Works........
  • Only small part of it is open. It is impressive with enormous paintings by Rubens, beautiful Dutch paitings, but I've barely spent 2 hours there - and I listened to every audio guide article. Hopefully I can make another trip when they open the rest of it
  • Beautiful paintings in a beautiful building. Labels are mostly in German. On Sundays the entrance fee is only 1€!
  • This museum carries a fantastic collection. The oldest pieces are extremely exciting and you will be left wondering how it was possile to survive to this day and age. Would definitely recommend. The space in itslef is magnificent and you will find generous sitting areas in the exhibition rooms.
  • Its a great art gallery but it was just a little bit dull for me. all of the art was very traditional. Just a standard art gallery. Its okay but nothing amazing. It is quite expensive to get in and when I went only one gallery was open as well which was dissapointing.
