Both these museums have great art and decent audioguides. The Alte goes up to the 18th century and the Neue covers the 19th and 20th. Didn't get to the Modern but I'm sure it's similarly fine.

This museum has some fabulous religious art from the 1400-1700. Ticket price includes an audio-tour handset/headset. We saw the Ante-Pinakothek, but there is also a (New) Neu-Pinakothek and Modern Art Museum. We only had time for the one, but know that there are three museums around the courtyard area, if you prefer the other styles of art.

N48°8.901' E11°34.181' This massive and symmetrical building is one of the most visible in Munich, with a wraparound garden where urbanites like to walk during lunch hour. Inside is a staggering assortment of important paintings from every era after you climbed its most impressive chair case ever. To our surprise during our visit in May 2013, Alte Pinakothek excels in... More

When in Munich, a visit to the Alte Pinakothek and the Neue Pinakothek is a must for art lovers. These museums have excellent collections and they are presented in an exceptional manner. Photographs are permitted throughout the museum, with the exception of special exhibit rooms. I will return the next time I am in Munich.

It is a very easy to find and explore exhibition of art. We enjoyed the tour over the centuries. It is advisable to visit all the museums at the same day.

I absolutely loved it, especially Flemish masters. Worth spending a couple of hours or more. Don't forget to buy some postcards at museum shop.

I went to the building with the "old" art (the modern art building is separate). The building is beautiful and the art is great. Be sure to do the self-guided audio tour. It's very good.
