Old Pinacotheca

Old Pinacotheca munich

With more than 700 paintings from the 14th to the 18th century, the Old Munich Pinacotheca belongs to the most important collections of its kind in the world. In addition to the masterpieces in the permanent collection, the Pinakothek also exhibits masterpieces at various locations in Munich and Bavaria, including many churches, allowing the paintings to be admired in the places for which they were created. A museum that is a must to visit and with enough time.

New Pinacotheca

New Pinacotheca Collection Schack Munich

The New Pinacotheca offers a global vision of the different periods of European Art, from Classicism to Art Nouveau. After the destruction of the original building during the Second World War and a temporary presentation in the House of Arts, a new museum designed by the architect Alexander von Branca opened its doors in 1981. Through the permanent development of the collection, the New Pinakothek has become one of the most important museums in the world for the arts of the 19th century.

Munich Guide

Opening hours:
• The New Pinacotheca is closed until 2025 due to extensive renovation measures for the public. A selection of 19th century art masterpieces will be on display from summer 2019 on the ground floor of the Old Pinacotheca (east wing) and in the Schack Collection.

• SCHAK : Prinzregentenstraße 9, 80538 München

Pinacotheca of the Modern

Pinacotheca Modern munich

The term "pinacoteca" is not accurate because this museum does not only show paintings but it was preserved to create a continuity with the other two dating from the 19th century. The museum was completed in 2002 and presents, in addition to the "classics" of the 20th century and the contemporaries, a remarkable exhibition devoted to design, another to graphic art, and finally to architecture. Numerous temporary exhibitions of modern art are also held there.

Lenbachhaus

Lenbachhaus munich

Without a doubt the must-see museum in Munich. In this former studio villa of the painter Franz von Lenbach, recently extended by Norman Forster's architectural firm, the Blue Rider (blaue Reiter) is represented like nowhere else: with Kandinsky, Jawlensky, Marc, Make and also Klee, the transition from expressionism to abstract art is masterfully depicted. The 19th century is also present with German painters often unknown in France, one part is reserved for Beuys, another for temporary exhibitions and the historical rooms designed by Lenbach are very well preserved.

Brandhorst Museum

Museum Brandhorst munich

This municipal museum, which opened in 2009, was built for the works of the world's largest private collection of pop art, that of the Brandhorst couple. The architecture of the building is in perfect harmony with the works on display and has a unique timelessness and simplicity.

The House of Arts

Haus der Kunst

Inaugurated in 1937 by Adolf Hitler, the building has the heaviness and ugliness typical of the architecture of totalitarian regimes. The Nazi regime exhibited official art there. After the war, it was decided to devote it to temporary (high-quality) contemporary art exhibitions as a revenge for history. The only permanent part of the museum is its archives.

The German Museum

German Museum munich

The term "German museum" has no nationalist connotation, but was so called because although it originated in Munich, it was an imperial museum. It is dedicated to the techniques from the origins to the present day. Built on an island in the river Isar, space is limited and the visit of the main building can be completed by its annexes, one dedicated to mobility in all its forms, the other to the conquest of the air.

Glyptothek

Glyptothek museum munich

Louis I wanted a large district dedicated to culture. He succeeded well, with this museum of ancient art and then the famous pinacotheques. The exhibited works are of high quality and cover all antiquity, classical Greek art is remarkably presented. Opened to the public in the first part of the 19th century, it was very innovative in terms of museology, very effective.

Egyptian Art Museum

Egyptian Art Museum munich

No mummies in this museum, which as its name indicates, is devoted solely to the art of Egypt, over 5000 years of history. Here again, the presentation of the works is masterful and the building inaugurated in 2013 is reminiscent of Egyptian architecture. The museum is in the museum district, opposite the Ancient Pinacotheca
