Head on over on a Sunday if you can, the minimal cost (€4) goes down to €1. A fantastic collection of art spread across several museums. The Alte museum is undergoing works until 2017 but the collection on show is still very impressive.

We visited the Neue Pinakothek for Neue Kunst and found it to be very interesting with many different exhibits ranging from cars to gadgets to the painter Kirchner with an extraordinary collection of his work. Beautiful and very much worthwhile.

There are 3 museums that make up the Pinakothek, each separate. We only managed der Moderne (20th century) and a quick visit to the Alte. It's a bit out of the centre of Munich, but if you like art, then well worth a visit. There's a tram stop nearby. Wish we'd had time for the Neue!

What a resource for art lovers. This collection of museums is a world treasure. At least see one of them while in Munich.

I suggest to go there, there is also a possibility that you can enter free if you go in special days or hour of the day. The kind of art is particular, not for "everyone", but is a nice museum and the architecture is really good!

This was a beautiful modern building housing a large collection of modern art, very little of which inspired us. But that may be a limitation of the two of us!

Great collection of Old Masters. All the great names. Nice cafeteria. A part of the rooms are undergoing renovation, so it was not possible to see the entire collection.

Spent an entire rainy day here by myself. It was so worth it. You can spend hours and get lost in here.

If you visit the old Pinakothek, make sure you have the audio description of the paintings. It really makes you enjoy the art to the fullest. You'll notice details you would never find. The entrance ticket costs only 4 EUR. Be prepared to spend at least a day visiting all four Pinakothek museums. I visited only the old. You get... More
