A leading museum with great masterpieces. Under renovation. During 2015 one half is closed including the famous Durer's, Botticelli etc. Yet impressive and a must. Note that some of the photos in trip advisor are from the Neue Pinakothek nearby, bot from here. Very good free audio guide.

Great museum, and the audio guide was in particular especially good (in contrast to the one at the Residenz), but more than half the museum was closed, including most of the most famous pieces. A handful of the best pieces are in a special exhibition (especially some of the Rubens), but on the whole we would not have made the... More

Really enjoyable. Make sure you use the audio aid to enhance the experience. At present there are renervations going on so it's cheaper but not the full experience.

We enjoyed a visit to both the Alte and Neue Pinakotheks on a rather damp Sunday in May 2015. While both were busy, neither were overcrowded. The great bonus is the reduced entrance fee of just €1 on a Sunday.

This is the most wheelchair-friendly place I've seen in Munich. A little tip is to visit it on Sunday in order to pay only 1 euro. The most beautiful rooms are at the end of the guided tour, keep it in mind if you haven't got much time to visit it all.

Only €4 entry fee, but half the galleries are completely closed at the moment, which we hadn't realised, so we were very disappointed to only see a small part of the collection. The works are on-going for the next year. The cafe is very good, with delicious cakes.

I was surprised a the amount of art they had. Does not take much time to get through however. Really liked the Durer and it was worth the admission.

At the time of my visit half of the museum was closed due to renovation but still it was worth the visit. On Sundays only Euro 1 to enter. Nice part of Munich also well worth a walk.
