The Glyptothek is a must see, quite near Munich main railway station. The roman/greek exhibits are well presented and of great interest. This museum is a must see for history lovers. Tip Sunday entrance is only 1 euro.

I spent 2 hours here during a multi-museum day in Munich. If Classical sculpture is your thing this is the place. The current focus is on the sculpture of busts.

Look great from outside. It little complicated to come there because no Ubahn goes from Marienplaz but you can take a bus or go on foot.

The Glyptothek is currently showing scuptures (mostly heads) of old Greeks and Romans. They are incredible. Go see it!

Wow. I had always heard of the Glyptothek and its collection of Greek and Roman sculpture, so was super excited to finally visit in person. It did not disappoint.

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.

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.
