Although a notch down from Glypotheke in Copenhagen, the Pinakothek is an incredible space that gives you a circular exposition of the classical sculptures. The presentation, the light and the staff are all adding to this space. A must-visit in Munich.

This is a review of the Neue Pinakotek, which specializes in 19th Century portraits and landscapes...if you like that sorta thing. They do have a handful of van Goghs, Monets, Gauguins, and Klimts.

If you enjoy culture and have a rainy day in Munich there is no better attraction. Only regret is that we didn't have two days to spend more time in these excellent museums. They all have great collections, are beautiful buildings to walk around, and are world class museums.

Only 1 Euro gets you into a really well curated museum of modern art with a nice design exhibit, among other really cool modern art. Spacious cafe and museum shop, with an extensive book offering. Be prepared to stow a medium sized purse in a locker, as the museum staff is quite strict about this. Seems silly, but that's the... More

When we visited the Alte Pinakothek, some wings of the museum were under renovation. The museum has been going through this renovation process, wing by wing. It disappointed me, since we missed out on the Hals, Rembrandt and Reubens works which I hoped to see. It is a big let down when you travel across the Atlantic to a museum... More

Convenient location, so easy to find. Decided to go as you love art but it was a disappointment. Staff very rude, insisting in speaking in German and never told us that half of the collection that we were desperate to see was not in the gallery.

Interesting place with funny expos. For example you can look at computers from good old days until now. You can also find thing that you might think is something new, like coffee machines, but as a matter of fact they have been here for a real long time.

One of the blessings of Munich is well-developed public transit. Use it to visit the Pinakothek, a collection of three buildings--each dedicated to a style. The audio tour is a must for real enjoyment.
