Wow, I was completely taken with this place . I was quite ignorant when it came to German artists not any more. Loved the paintings and the layout of the building and positioning of artists works.

This is a great art museum to visit. It is, of course, particularly good for German Renaissance paintings

Moderate size. Around 1.5 hours visit. Easy floor plan to walk thru all with a brochure. Good location to hop off.

If you are an art lover it is well worth a visit. We spent 3.5 hours inside and it was not enough to time to see everything the way we would have liked to. We were almost racing through the place....There is so much to see - really enjoyed the visit - will have to come back and spend more... More

A nice museum, similar to what you would see in other major capitals. Lots of great artists on display. Only downside was the construction, meaning a couple of wings could not be seen. Will go back again next time I am in Munich.

Honestly speaking I was only partially satisfied by the visit. I have preferred the Neue Pinakotheke. This is my personal point of view.

I was really disappointed because of the all the construction going on. I'll definitely be back when everything has been restored. As many know already, the Pinakothek trio is only 1 euro on Sundays. I visited on a Sunday so I felt that I got the bang for my buck..literally. I believe the admission fee is reduced on normal business... More

when something makes it into "1000 places to see before you die," you know it's going to be good. The Old Gallery did not disappoint. it's a little bit of a walk but not hard to find. be sure to get an audio guide in the lobby; they're available in several languages. coats & bags are checked at the door...

This is one of the most important art museums in Munich and well worth a visit, combine it with the new Pinakotek!
