#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 »

  • Very nice collection/gallery of art. The paintings are so detailed, and most of it made me to stun and wonder. enjoyed the arts of human and amazed their creative paintings. Very peaceful and relaxing place for the local people. when i was there, one part of it was under renovation. the entry fee is 4€ which is reasonable. moreover will get a audio guide, which explains more about the art work. the audio guides are in five languages including english. The staffs are very friendly and they are maintaining it very well.
  • One on the best museums in Munich. Several times been there and always stumble upon some art student who can tell a whole story just by looking at a single picture.
  • Very nice gallery. The entrance is 1€ on Sundays so really worth visiting, but you will need at least 2 hours , because there are many paintings. However, under heavy reconstruction right now.
  • Much of it was under renovation, so I don't feel like I can really do five stars. The small amount that was open was quite cool, however, and the audio tour in English was included. If you are looking for the piece by Leonardo da Vinci, you are in luck because that area is currently open!
  • Very nice selection of paintings - a lot of Rubens, one DaVinci and Rafael. All in all quite nice (abeit not so big as expected - some sections are closes off) :)
