My 10 year-old daughter and I spent half of the day at the Pinakothek. This is a large museum with paintings, sculptures, and photo exhibits. Children under 18 are free, and adults are 10 euros, which includes a headset. It was very reasonably priced for all that there is to see. My daughter loved listening to the descriptions of the...

Superbly organized, excellent access, excellent cafeteria quite an experience. Look for Bosh and Brueghel. Diverse collection of Rubens. Maybe one of the best. Don't miss Raphael and Leonardo. Wings of the museum are closed for renovation

Due to the renovation, the Alte Pinakothek (old art museum) is only 4 Euros! Make sure you get an audio guide which is free. You can only access about 2/3 of the museum but they most of their best paintings on display. It has paintings from all the great masters, but perhaps not their best paintings. However, for the 4...

We visited this gallery in between other attractions and were surprised to see how quiet it was. The Pinakothek has a substantial collection of a wide range of artists, and the curation means the pieces flow from room to room in a natural progression. Thoroughly enjoyed this gallery, and I would recommend it to take a break from the hustle... More

The arrangement of paintings sometimes seemed force, but what a collection. Also nice café. Like many other places in Munich, women were forced to leave bags in lockers.

The audio guide is very thorough and informative. There is currently renovations going on. Parts of the museum may be closed. The entrance fee is discounted due to the renovations. Check the website before you go.

We loved the collection of late and post Impressionist works - including some superb works by Van Gogh.

I've only been to the Alte Pinakothek but can't wait to visit the rest of the Pinakothek museums. Lots of great German artists, but also some beautiful pieces from some of the 'chart hit' artists you'd expect in a world class museum - Van Gogh, Rembrandt, Rubens etc. Fabulous.

This museum focuses on art from the medieval to the XVIIIth century. The museum is undergoing major renovations but manages to display most of its masterpieces anyway. However it is a bit of a treasure hunt to find them as you sometimes have to go through the cafe or the shop to get to the temporary galleries. Fortunately the breadth... More
