This museum is really worth visiting! You can see fantastic art by masters. I tend to feel very meditative while watching this.

We visited the Pinakothek on New Years Day to see its Impressionist works (there were some interesting Van Goughs) and its Klimt paintings. The museum is located near a subway line and was a pleasant gallery to visit. It has lots of space and it also had an excellent café. The gallery also was interesting for its collection of German...

We saw an exhibit of 18th century Italians (Canalotti) that was quite memorable. The place was packed. The biggest problem is that there are three different kinds of tickets for one exhibit, the other exhibit or the whole museum. Figuring out which one was which without good command of the German language was hilarious.

well worth a visit to this famous art galleries, it is however undergoing renovations from Feb 2014 - end 2017, so some of the the areas are closed, this is reflected in the reduced entry fees. Tip: state/public museums are only 1 euro entry on a Sunday. They had a fantastic Special Exhibition of Canaletto paintings. Cafe Klenze is worth... More

This place held mostly Christian art from as early as the 1200s to 16 and 1700s. There was a lot to see. There were some Divinci's, Rafael's, and many more artists. They provided audio and headphones that corresponded to numbers near certain paintings so you could dial in the number when you were ready to look and listen. We really... More

An excellent museum of primarily religious motif paintings. The arrangement of artwork and excellent audio via headsets made what could be a dry topic simply amazing. Regardless of wether you are interested in historical works, the artwork is beautiful and tell a great story. This is an enjoyable and required place to visit while in Munich.

The museums were open on New Year's and it was awe inspiring. You need at least 2 days to visit all three, but we as the old and new Pinakotheks in a day. Seeing art by Monet and Van Gogh were awe inspiring.

A bit off the beaten path, we did the Neue Pinakothek and the Pinakothek der Moderne. Hard to tell where the front door is on both places. Docents stare at you and follow you as you tour the galleries--kinda spooky. But great art!

This was my second visit to both the Alte and Neues Pinakothek. Both are wonderful. The selection of paintings and sculpture in both museums is outstanding!
