Alte Pinakothek, Munich

(4.4/5 based on 1,800+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • This museum is the perfect size for me, about 2 1/2 hours to cover entirely and read about each work in the collection. There are places to sit and rest or just admire the art. There is a snack and co...  more »
  • Impressive building of Leo von Klenze, rebuilt after the war by Hans Döllgast, highlighting its staircase. The collection is good and is well exhibited in spacious rooms. Currently part of the building renovation.

  • Old art gallery with masterpieces from Rubens, Da Vinci, Botticelli, Dürer and many others. I highly recommend to visit.
  • Great selection of impressive works. About half the museum was inaccessible due to renovations when I went, but even half the collection was worth the relatively cheap admission when combined the other museums.
  • I was amazed by the detail and color of all the art work. Half of the permanent exhibit is closed due to renovations so the entry is 4 Euro. If you'd like to see the special exhibit the price for both is 8. It's a quick ride on the 27 tram from Karlsplatz.
  • To say this gallery is under construction is an under statement . More than 90% of the galley is closed till 2018 so why bother keeping this place open and charge 4 euros entry. They do not honor the 2 euro discounted entry charge. Completely disappointed with this one. Best to pass on it till 2018 when there is actually something to see.
  • Great museum. But some sections are closed due to renovation until 2018.
