See sculptures dating from the Archaic age (650 BCE) to the Roman era (550 CE) when you tour Glyptothek. Originally built for Bavarian King Ludwig I to hold his collection of Greek and Roman sculptures, this museum now holds famous sculptures from a wide range of periods. From the Archaic period, you can see the Munich Kouros and the Kouros of Tenea. From the Classical period, view the portrait of Homer and Statue of Diomedes. The Barberini Faun represents the Hellenistic period, while the bust of Emperor Augustus is from the Roman period. The museum includes a cafe. See Glyptothek and all Munich has to offer by arranging your trip with our Munich trip generator.

Eine übersichtliche Ausstellung antiker Figuren und Köpfe der selben. Man trifft hier Kunststudenten, die die Figuren malen und oft Schulklassen, wo der eine oder andere ein Referat halten muss.

There are art students painting the figures and often schools, where one or the other must keep a unit here. Memories of their own school there will not remain. In the courtyard, I've seen the occasional Greek tragedy earlier in the summer. Very atmospheric! When no such thing is available, you can sit well in good weather in this yard and drink a cup of coffee. The small café of the Museum offers in addition to coffee and cake snacks and cold drinks.show original
Gut sortierte Sammlung antiker Bildhauerei. Das Gebäude wurde leider im Krieg erheblich lädiert, Einige Bilder zeigen die frühere Innenbemalung. Die Texte zu den jeweiligen Statuen sind in jedem Raum ... read more »Well-stocked collection of antique sculpture. The building was substantially damaged unfortunately in the war, some images show the previous Interior painting. The texts to the respective statues are available in every room. However, the numbering follows no discernible plan - to find the head of the Emperor Claudius to the list, you must search diligently. A plan would be better. Very nice and friendly Café with good Expresso and nice service.show original
Wenn man von den Propyläen, die von Leo von Klenze im Auftrag von König Ludwig I. in Form eines Tempeleingangs errichtet wurden, aus auf den Königsplatz geht, liegt linker Hand die Glyptothek, das ein... read more »If the Propylaea, which were built by Leo von Klenze in behalf of King Ludwig I in the form of a temple entrance, from the King place goes, is left to the Glyptothek Museum, the only Museum in the world that is dedicated to the ancient sculpture alone. Together with the State collection of Antiquities, on the South side of the Royal square, the Glyptotek has one of the world's most important collections of Greek and Roman art. Who loves Greek and Roman marble statues, is here in the right place, because you can experience a unique art and culture. If you want, can reverberate in between his impressions in an outdoor café in the courtyard of the Glyptothek. More I want to do not write because every visitor is there beginning to dip in the ancient world. Just a little tip: on Sundays, the entrance fee is € 1.00 (not a typo one euro!)show original
The combination of great art, awesome presentation, and a nice cafe, is hard to beat.
Glyptothek is definitely one of my favorite museums in Munich! If you're love spending your time observing and enjoying ancient Greek and Roman sculptures, you'll understand what I mean. To the major attractions belong also a large collection of Roman busts, several Roman sarcophagus reliefs, and mosaic floors. During World War II the museum was bombed but thank to reconstruction is open for everybody who understand and value ancient art. The museum's atmosphere alone can't be beat.
Interesting for who loves Greek art. Small collection not worth for the entrance price.
