Located in Konigsplatz is the Staatliche Antikensammlungen or State Collections of Antiquities, focused on Bavaria's collection of Greek, Etruscan and Roman artefacts from antiquities. There's some truly high quality exhibits on display, but pity there's very little English save for the description of each hall. The descriptions for the exhibits are in German only.

Would've been 5 star if there was any English. Luckily, I visited on a Sunday when the entrance fee is only €1.

This is a great collection of Greek and Roman antiquities, laid out in a very visitor-friendly way. You can get introduced to the subject and see some world-class items without the risk of the deadly museum-fatigue. The ground floor is organized thematically, introducing the visitor to various Greek and Roman gods and themes of Greek and Roman life, all illustrated by authentic painted pottery, statues and jewelry from Greece, Italy, Turkey and elsewhere. The small exhibit on the upper level is dedicated to Etruscan relics from the collection of James Loeb, a remarkable American who endowed the Munich archeological collections. It's a fascinating story. The lower level has Greek and Roman gold jewelry, glass and armor. The only better Etruscan collection I've seen is in Chiusi: there are bigger collections of Greek and Roman artifacts but few which are better. Hitler and Chamberlain took time out from deciding the fate of the world to visit this collection (which is located less than a hundred yards from the building where the ill-fated Munich agreement was signed). The museum is 50 yards from the gate seen on the Lowenbrau bottle. It's a five minute walk from the main train station -- if you are going from the Munich airport to someplace by train, check your bags (6 euros for a locker at the train station) and walk on over.

It has a great collection with ancient Greek pottery and some etruscan items. Unfortunately, as in many museums in Munich, the descriptions are mainly in German. The staff in the front desk is very friendly and helpful, especially a young lady who is, by the way, speaking greek. Also, we had a very nice coffee and dessert at the museum's cafe.

I went on a Sunday, so my 1 Euro entrance fee covered this museum and the Glyptothek across the street. I would have paid more for the Glyptothek and less for the Antikensammlungen. On the plus side, the museum did a great job of providing history and context, in German and English, about the items presented in each room. On the day I went, however, only the first floor was open to visitors. So I saw about 5 rooms of antique pottery, a small wall display of jewelry, and an exhibit of fashion inspired by ancient clothing. Overall a disappointing experience.

we travelled all the way from Seefeld in Tirol to visit especially this Museum.It was a Sunday when all the Museum is Munich Cost 1 euro!!! An outstanding valuable collection of carefully selected pottery especially of Greek and Etruscan origin. Unusual painting themes I think you cannot find them elsewhere. I Know because I am Greek.There are also exhibits of gold ,bronze and glass jewels and other items.

I only visited this as it was included in the glyptotek ticket. I wasn't too impressed at first as the main floor was mostly greek and Roman pottery, which is impressive but there's a lot of it and to someone who knows very little about that history it gets a bit repetitive. I am so glad i decided to go downstairs to use the toilet afterwards as I would have missed the best part had I not! There's a huge collection of intricate gold and gemstones downstairs that for me made the visits to the rest of the collection and the glytotek worth it.

Beautiful collection of ancient Greco-Roman artefacts including weapons, jewellery, statuettes and what is probably one of the biggest collections of perfectly preserved greek pottery.

Unfortunately, the displays only feature descriptions in German which takes away from the experience for tourists. Could also use wifi!

A visit to the museum was not on my agenda but since it was included in my entry ticket to the Glyptothek, on the opposite side of Konigsplatz, I paid it a visit. This museum houses the state collection of antiquities of the Greeks, Etruscans and Romans. From the outside the building, constructed between 1838 to 1848, is impressive to observe with its Corinthian Temple facade.

The museum was extremely quiet on the day of my visit, I would not have seen any more than four other visitors during my short twenty minute visit. The museum is well lit and has some stunning pieces in its collection: dishes, bowls, vases, ornaments all housed in large glass cabinets which you can easily move around and view the objects from all angles. The oldest antiquities in the museum are a pair of female figures from the late Neolithic period of the 4th millennium BC. There is very little written information for the visitors but there are several banners on the walls written in German and English to enhance the visit.
