I went on a Sunday, so my 1 Euro entrance fee covered this museum and the Glyptothek across the street. I would have paid more for the Glyptothek and less for the Antikensammlungen. On the plus side, the museum did a great job of providing...More

The Glyptothek and the Antikensammlungen face each other across the Koenigsplatz. While the Glyptothek probably gets more notice, this other museum is essentially part of the same collection of classical art.

The Museum of Antiquities houses the Bavarian State collections of ancient art including primitive and classical Greek, Roman, Etruscan and others. It is an absolute jewel of a gallery. The museum had a superb special exhibition of Etruscan art when we visited. Many of the...More
