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.

  • although in reconstruction you can see the masterpieces by Breugel, Dürer and others, with the recording 
  • A wonderful museum with an impressive collection. Not as overwhelming as other great art museums in Europe so you can really take your time to take in the art. 
  • I went on a Sunday afternoon, and to my surprise the admission was only 1 Euro. It is small museum but packed with great art. It actually exceeded my expectations. The Ruben's paintings, along with ma...  read more »
  • Very famous museum of modern and contemporary art and design. I was really looking forward to go there but disappointed afterwards. Most of the artworks are really stunning but as it is with most contemporary art you have to decide. The exhibition on konstantin gricic was OK I think it could have been done better. The staff on the counter was rude but the folks in the museum were ok. I had to pay full price (10€) which is really a lot. the most expensive museum I have been to for sure but hey you get this weird sheet metal thing. What I found really awful was the fact that they were renovating several rooms which was really loud and annoying and meant there was a lot you could not see. I mean that happens but they really should reduce the ridiculous price. And probably put someone nice on the counter bc you know. . .it's the first contact. In a nutshell you can go there but it's really not a must see, especially in Munich. There are better museums that are far cheaper.
  • Nice modern art museum. Entry is on some days just 1 €, which is a very fair price. Several changing and also constant exhibitions all year round, including some really superb masterpieces.
  • Very nice museum with wide range of art pieces. And very nice environment and architecture.
  • Very good museum for modern art. Mix of paintings, photography, and design.
  • Great museum. Have a great audio guide. Have English guide but not complete. (don't have for individual painting)
