This is a world class collection of visual art. I was on a multi- museum trek and as a result I glazed over. Next time I return to Munich I will revisit this museum

If you are interested in Rubens, the Alte Pinakothek is a must. As per April 25, some of the museum is still under renovation but the collection currently at display still takes at least 2 hours to enjoy.

While a significant part of it seems to enjoy renovations, the museum was still impressive. There is a good collection of Flemish and Dutch with highlights of Rembrand and Rubens. An illuminating Da Vinci and a breath-taking El Greco make you lose track of time....More

A museum with great art work. Was under renovation so not all is on display, but still an excellent visit.

The museum has an incredible collection of Rubens, Cranach and Durer. Unfortunately it is under extensive renovation, meaning that a lot of the collection is not on display. One hint-- it has a very nice cafe, so it's a good place to grab a bite.

Lots of old and very traditional paintings in this museum. Easy to do in an afternoon and easy to get to via mass transit.

We really enjoyed this museum. Beautiful layout and works of art! We arrived in the afternoon on a Sunday and entrance was only 1 Euro. An added bonus

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
