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.

Some areas of the gallery are spectacular, a great work of art historians, visit highly recommended.
絵画が、好みではなかった。多くの銀食器が並んでいるのは、壮観だったが、地味な絵が多く、ミュンヘン出身の画家を、大切にしているなぁ、と感じました more »Painting was not my cup of taste. It was spectacular that there were many silverware in a row, but there were a lot of sober pictures, and I felt that I cherished the painter from Munich.
Очень большое собрание, очень высокие лестницы. Дюрер во всей красе. Можно посмотреть Ван Гога во время реконструкции Новой Пинакотеки. Хорошая ценовая политика в отношении детей. more »A very large gathering, very high stairs. Durer in all its glory. You can see Van Gogh during the reconstruction of The New Pinacoteca. Good pricing policy for children.
There was a long queue for tickets on Sunday because it only costs €1 on Sundays. I couldn’t fine how to buy tickets online. I feel like there are many old school practice in Germany. They arrange rooms chronologically and each room is denoted to an artist. They have many rooms for Rubens. The description next to the paintings were very informative and educational. They talk about the technique, the layout, the colour, etc. Something you often only expect with a guided tour. They also had a special exhibition for Caravaggio inspired pairings. Unfortunately the guided tours were mostly in German. It’s interesting that you have to climb a long staircase to reach the exhibition level. Then there were two heavy wooden doors that you need to push by yourself to enter the exhibition rooms. Metaphorically you can think of it as a journey to the enlightenment. When you reach the top, you get all the good views.
I loved this museum. I was bummed I wasn't able to see the entire collection due to the renovations, but so happy for what was available. I loved it, and was deeply moved. Gorgeous stairway, windows especially at the right time of day. I can't wait to go back once it's the renovations have been completed.
This was a great museum, but I'm going to do a bit of a collective review. This one is located a stones throw away from five other museums that are all included within a single day pass that only costs you two euros, it is massive bang for buck. There are also a ton of other museums that are also near this one that entirely worth visiting and some of them have collective tickets as well. You could literally spend and entire day in this tiny little square because it is so densely packed with stuff to see.
Full of amazing European art, it’s a wonder why it wasn’t very crowded. Staff were friendly and many speak English. I recommend buying a day ticket to visit this gallery and three others in Munich
Superb old masters collection. Huge depth in their collection of Rubens, Rembrandt and Durer. Masterpieces like Durer's self portrait of 1500, Rembrandt's passion cycle or Titian's second version of the crowning with thorns make the visit worth while. Certain schools like Spanish, French and English paintings are notable by their under representation in the collection. Overall a huge range of paintings with many masterpieces.
