This museum contains a substantial collection of medieval paintings. Most of the pieces are huge, dark and biblical. If you are not a connoisseur of medieval Christianity the best thing about this building is the Victorian café with classical sculptures and tasty sandwiches.

A mayor renovation and restructuration work is going on, so quite a large part of the collection can not be enjoyed by the public now. Prices are adjusted with this in mind.

This is one of the three Pinakotheks. This is the old masters gallery with brilliant collection from the 14. to middle of 18. centuries. Besides the great collection - something like 80 Rubens paintings - they have very good temporary exhibitons too.

In Munich, there are three "Pinakotheken": The "Alte Pinakothek" which is home to such famous paintings as Durer´s "Four Apostles" or Rogier van der Weyden´s "Adoration of the Magi". The "Neue Pinakothek" has its emphasis on 19th century and impressionism. The "Pinakothek der Moderne" is by far the youngest of these three collections and houses Art of the 20th century.... More

The "Old" pinakothek offers painting to ~1700, and the 'New' (over the road), up to ~1900. Heavy on local (to be expected), but very good nonetheless. Go on a Sunday for 1 euro admission

We went to the Alte (Old) Pinakothek, of Old Masters and Renaissance paintings. Def use the audio guide, great info & background. Really worthwhile, not too crowed, & a good cafe. Please note that sections of the museum will be closed for renovation through 2017, but there are still plenty to see. Good a/c during a heat wave in July,... More

I visits the Neue Pinakotek. A Very beautiful museum, with famous works by Monet and Van Gogh! You are allowed to take photos (for personal use). I will recommend it to everyone! On Sunday's, the entrance price is €1. Audio guides are available in many languages. The cafe underneath the museum is pretty, but very expensive. I paid €7 for... More
