The collection of old masters is breathtaking. Following along on the audiotape was a delight. On a weekday afternoon we were often alone with a Vermeer or a Rubens or da Vinci. No jostling crowds. Plenty of time to contemplate the beauty and importance of...More

Amazing art collection. Could easily spend hours here. Especially if you're a fan of flemish art or de Vinci.

Only partly opened due to renovation work. But still worth the visit, masterpieces and surprisingly not too many visitors. It worth to go in Munich only for this visit

There are renovations of some collections at the present time. However the collection of the paintings by Rubins is magnificent. Seniors pay a reduced entry fee and there is a lift for those with mobility problems who wish to reach the upper floors.

I last visited here in 1971, and things are pretty much unchanged. My biggest disappointment was that the rooms with the Druer collection were closed, that was my main reason for going. The rest of the collection is excellent with many great pieces of art....More

We arrived on a weekday just at the 10 am opening and there was no line. Due perhaps to the renovations and the smaller collection on view, there did not seem to be very many people, even by noon.

For an art geek and somewhat obsessive must-see-everything type person, how much time should I allot to Alte Pinakothek in its current state of renovation? As a ball park, if I were to view/listen to everything on an audio-guide, how long would it take? Also, a general sense of scale would be great. Is it like the Louvre, which using my approach takes at least 3 days to see the whole thing satisfactorily (one day per wing) or is it more like the Art Institute of Chicago, which I was able to see pretty much everything in 1.5 days? Other museums that can be used as a point of reference are the Met in NY, the National Gallery in Washington D.C., the National Gallery in London, the Uffizi in Florence or Museo el Prado in Madrid. (I am trying to list the larger, encyclopedic museums since that is what I understand Alte Pinakothek to be). Currently, I have a day allotted to Alte Pinakothek, a day allotted to Neue Pinakothek, and a half day allotted to Pinakothek der moderne (purely based on my lesser interest in contemporary art). Again, I am not interested in how much time it would take a typical traveler to see the museum - I see 3 hours cited as a good amount of time, but I would spend 3 hours in small museums like the Frick in NY, so I can't imagine 3 hours would be anywhere enough time for me to see Alte Pinakothek. I will be visiting in September 2016. I am finding the museum's website unhelpful in terms of pinpointing what is closed and what is open or even a sense of proportion (half closed? 1/3 closed?) Any input would be greatly appreciated!
