I read somewhere that it does not take much time to visit. That was not my experience: I spent more than 4 hours and did not finish! It definitively helps if you ask for an audioguide, which are included in the admittance fee

I think this “The Pinakothek” is the Alte Pinakothek on the southern side of Theresienstrasse. Some of the visitor photos here are for the Neue Pinakothek and the Pinakothek der Moderne. The Pinakothek der Moderne is to the southeast, just across Barer Strasse. During our visit a large section was closed so don’t think this opinion is really a fair... More

We visited the Alte Pinakothek, as I particularly wanted to see the Canaletto exhibition, and I was not disappointed - really well done, and with much information (in both English and German) about the pictures. This exhibition will finish mid-January. The gallery is being refurbished at the moment, so disappointingly we were unable to see the French pictures; the entrance... More

The museum has a nice collection of paintings. A fair amount of them have religious themes, but there are many others as well. While I enjoy art museums I am far from an expert and even I recognized many of the artists whose pieces were included here. The entrance fee was very reasonable and included an audio guide (one of... More

I have nothing negative or critical to say about this museum. I wish I had more time to spend there. The building is spectacular and is everything a modern art museum should be. A few examples of their collection- Dali Karl Andre Picasso Ernst Kirchner Warhol

Far from the city center for walking especially on a rainy day, but a tram is possible. Extra charge for a special exhibit otherwise a regular art display of European masters. One must check even a folding umbrella in a tote bag so take care or be refused entrance to display floors. Nothing really unique here in the regular display... More

If you are into art, definitely check this place out if you are in Munich. It was only 4 Euros to get in when I went because part of it was under construction and I couldn't see everything. But what we did get to see was great! They have a lot of famous artists' works in the two story collection.... More
