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

Munich really has enough art museums to warrant at least a week's stay if one wants to go to them all. Unfortunately, we only had four days. Still, one can purchase a several-day ticket that covers most of them. It's also important to plan carefully because different museums are open on different days; the good thing about this is that...

Wonderful collection of paintings! The free audio helped a lot but was available for a limited number of paintings which was a shame. Staff were helpful.

Wonderful collection of paintings to rival national Gallery in Washington DC or the metropolitan in NY. Go see and judge for yourself!
