This was an excellent crash course for me to review European art schools from the last 5 centuries. The gift shop is exceptionally well stocked with a variety that is sure to please almost everyone on your gift list. Enjoy!

An extraordinary visit of wonderful ancient art. A touching experience! Since several rooms are closed for restoration, the ticket price is lowered and many of the most important works of the closed rooms are shown in an exposition. Recommended!

The Alte Pinakothek (Old Pinakothek) is one of the greatest painting museums in the world, housing the "Old Masters" of artists from the Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Spain, and France. One of the conceptually most advanced museums in the world when it was built in the 19th century (1826, designed by Leo von Klenze), the building is currently undergoing renovations for... More

Just 4 Euro entrance fee and then you'll all set up to see some of the major works of "alte Meister"! If you like the works of Rubens, Dürer & co, do not miss this for the world. The only minus: we had some trouble finding the building, we forgot our map and the signs on the street almost got... More

We enjoyed this museum and were treated to a free concert in the entry round. The outside area in front of the museum is also very nice for hanging out with kids.

Fantastic collection. If you like 15th-17th century fine art you will enjoy the Alte. It was relatively empty too, so you could enjoy the earliest known Da Vinci and a trio of Raphael paintings in peace. Plenty of Italian, Dutch and Flemish masters as well as German. Some of the rooms were closed but still spent over 4 hours in... More

I visited the Neue Pinakothek. Lovely gallery - including paintings by Van Gough (sunflowers), Manet (water lilies), Max Liebermann, von Menzel and artists too numerous to mention.

One can spent days at the 3 Pinakotheks. The best is to visit on Sundays with reduced entrance. I went to the Modern on a Saturday afternoon with my son and spent the whole Sunday in the other two.

The Alte Pinakothek is in a rolling programme of refurbishment for the next few years, so you may find parts of the collection unavailable. But what we saw was still wonderful. Didn't have time to visit the Neue, but did breeze through the Moderne. Good tip is to go on a Sunday where the entry fee is a token 1... More

The Pinakothek museums are world-class. The Alte Pinokothek is undergoing renovation, and about a quarter of it is closed, but as a result they have dropped the admission fee drastically, and seeing three-quarters of the art for half the price seems like a real bargain. Some stunning paintings here. The Neue Pinokothek (across the street) is a beautifully constructed museum,... More
