We visited in July: me, my daughter and mother. Definitely read a lot about it, watched movies. Impressive. Our group and guide Gelmut (informative guy) spent there around 1 hour - short enough, unfortunately we did not see the pictures, just the yard, fountain. Recommend.

Wow, great masterpieces, well organised. The lightning was sometimes a little old fashioned..... You have to walk a lot of stairs though

Particularly if it is a fine December day. We took a guided tour that morning and enjoyed the sounds (Musician Playing a violin) the multi national tour groups and our guide who brought history too life. Go see,even if you think it is not your thing,you may well be surprised.

Take your time and enjoy the espectacular works of art that this place has to show! The master piece is definetelly Rafael's Madona! By the time I was listening to the audioguide, I realised that without it I would have missed many details of the painting! I just loved it! Outstanding!

The museum is currently under construction, so about half of the total space is closed off. It appeared to me that they had shunted the collection into the open rooms, although I could have been wrong. Excellent collection and worth the time.

Wonderful collection here of German, Italian, and French master. Would recommend the audio tour also: at three Euros, it's a steal.

Art lovers should definitely head to this place for the fact that there are so many masterpieces at display here and most importantly they are well placed and the navigation around the place is quite easy too. i loved the pieces at display and had a great time.

Perhaps it would have been better if I'd come here first, rather than straight after a several hours long tour of different parts of the Residenzschloss, but I found the Old Masters Gallery very, very tiring. Too many rooms, too many paintings too crowded together (they soon began to blur into one another), too far to walk, an audio-guide that... More

Great art well-displayed. You can get close enough to the paintings to really see the technique, the brush strokes. Best in show in Europe for our money. Better than the Tate or the Louve.
