Interesting building with giant staircase up to gallery level. The exhibits here are dominated by Dutch masters form the 1700's. Major renovation on during the our visit in January, 2018 that limits the gallery space.

It’s a terrific museum that’s laid out in a very calming manner. There’s a massive collection and it’s quite strong in Italian masters however I found the sheer volume of works tiring and the presentation quite tedious. My bad.

For an art geek and somewhat obsessive must-see-everything type person, how much time should I allot to Alte Pinakothek in its current state of renovation? As a ball park, if I were to view/listen to everything on an audio-guide, how long would it take? Also, a general sense of scale would be great. Is it like the Louvre, which using my approach takes at least 3 days to see the whole thing satisfactorily (one day per wing) or is it more like the Art Institute of Chicago, which I was able to see pretty much everything in 1.5 days? Other museums that can be used as a point of reference are the Met in NY, the National Gallery in Washington D.C., the National Gallery in London, the Uffizi in Florence or Museo el Prado in Madrid. (I am trying to list the larger, encyclopedic museums since that is what I understand Alte Pinakothek to be). Currently, I have a day allotted to Alte Pinakothek, a day allotted to Neue Pinakothek, and a half day allotted to Pinakothek der moderne (purely based on my lesser interest in contemporary art). Again, I am not interested in how much time it would take a typical traveler to see the museum - I see 3 hours cited as a good amount of time, but I would spend 3 hours in small museums like the Frick in NY, so I can't imagine 3 hours would be anywhere enough time for me to see Alte Pinakothek. I will be visiting in September 2016. I am finding the museum's website unhelpful in terms of pinpointing what is closed and what is open or even a sense of proportion (half closed? 1/3 closed?) Any input would be greatly appreciated!

It needs definitely at least 2-3 hours - more, depending on what is closed. They are trying very hard to minimise the effects of important renovations - and they are even charging less as a consequence. The Brueghels are... More
