Glyptothek Munich is situated near Konigsplatz, build in neoclassical style, and houses State Collection Greek and Roman Antiquities. It's the city's oldest public museum - started from the time of King Ludwig I. I recommend this museum for the lovers of the classical art.

You have to be interested in antique sculpture to go. It is a traditionalö museum, but some pieces are exceptional.

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.

You know what we liked best about this museum besides the fact that items on display are of top notch quality? That's the fact that there's no overflow of sculptures, so each item has ample space! Signs are in German and English, however audio guides...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.
