Most people probably do not realize that Munich has one of the great collections of ancient Greek and Roman art and artifacts in the world at this and its sister museum across the street. One reason I returned to Munich.

This is a great place to visit if you are interested in archaic and classical sculpture. While I felt the collection was rather limited, it is well curated with ample information on the artifacts in a variety of languages.

We had a little bit of time before catching a train so .... we decided to Uber over to the Glyptothek. The museum is designed to show off the collection and the collection is incredible.

this building + Königsplatz are defenetly much more impressive than the exposition inside ( and I like history)... I would recommend it to go on a sunday. You will pay 1€ for both buildings.

Glyptothek is located on Königsplatz. It is a museum housing the collection of Greek and Roman sculptures donated by Bavarian King Ludwig. Architecture is Classical Greek - Italian style. a guided tour is highly recommended.

This museum was the first place that I wanted to visit when I came in Munich. It is not very big but it`s proper. It would be better if there was a more informative description for every sculpture. The Glyptothek contains sculptures from the archaic,...More

As usual in most museums, they discourage flash and if you're taking pics of anything you shouldn't be, there will be somebody there to remind you. We had no problem taking all the pics we wanted.
