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.

We really enjoy this museum for the beautiful artefacts and the wonderful presentation. In the summer months they have an open air theater in the museum courtyard (tickets include bread and wine). They have a café.

Great place for group pictures as we saw a lot of students taking pictures with their group. It is a large building and an important structure in Munich.

A collection of Greek statues worth visiting. The museum is not very big, which I like. And luckily for us it was free entrance that Sunday. I wish some of the books they sold in the shop would have been in English, but now I...More
