A good museum to go back to in the era of Roman and Greek architecture . Visit on Sundays as the ticket is only for 1 euro, the cheapest you can ever get.
Wonderful museum which hosts the masterpieces of the temple of Aphaea in the greek island of Aegina. Relaxed atmosphere, plenty of places to sit, quite often you ll find art students drawing. Must visit in Munich

A unique experience for any lover of art and ancient classical culture!
The Glyptothek is nothing less than the oldest museum in the city of Munich.
Its content is also exceptional: it is dedicated solely to ancient sculpture, from the archaic Greek ..

Inside the museum, in Room VIII, the visitor finds a cafeteria and is offered the opportunity, if the weather is good, to go out onto the large terrace in the heart of the building.
Finally, I would like to mention the kindness and warm welcome from the receptionists, especially Manuel.
Not too big but nice museum with Greek and Roman sculptures. They offer plenty of explanation in every room. It isn’t expensive at all and they do offer students discount.
Included in the ‘1 Euro ticket on Sundays’ program. The exhibit and architectural are both inspiring, and the textual statements next to the works are bilingual which help a lot.

Went on museum Sunday (reduced prices) and it is a great exhibition. Well structured, informative and takes you through the evolution of Greek and Roman sculptures.
Omg it's awesome place for sculpture. Especially, the route for exhibition is very clear and no confused!
And the material is so nice!
It is a museum full of Greek and roman sculptures and divided in halls for worshiping, arts, war and hunting. each sculpture has a number with audio in English/German to know more about it.

A wonderful temple where you can enjoy ancient Roman and Greek sculpture. Well displayed, well organized, in a unique setting. Even just after 2 weeks of full immersion in Rome still found in this Glyptothek alone enough to justify my trip to Munich.
Amazing collection of Greek antiquities with a wealth of background information and a fantastic cafe. What's not to like? And we went on one Euro Sunday. Amazing deal.
Well, if you have an hour to spend looking at some very decent, partial-sculptures, then this is the place for you. If you're looking for famous works, you're unlikely to find it.

Historic museum with Greek and Roman sculptures. I love how this place is maintained. And also bonus tip: Visit this on Sundays they have only 1€ ticket.
Beautiful collection of antique art. Worth a stroll on a Sunday morning when the ticket is only 1 €. There's even a café inside. But one must be very careful with small children so they won't knock anything down.
It’s clearly not the Louvre or Vatican Museums, but it costs only 1€ on Sundays. Nice visit after your bunch at Park Café! ?

A very great place to be. Much better than Berlin.
It is nice to relax and to think about all the poor people who have to live in Berlin. Glyptothek is really a building that makes me thankful for being in Munich and not in Berlin.
Nice Collection of antique statutes.
Someone wrote in a review that they don't accept credit cards. That was not true for today. Payed with card without problems.
The Collection itself is not too big. But if you like art/skulptures worth a visi.. Read more »t

Loved it! Just wish it was bigger and had everything in English as well as German
This could be one of my most favorite museums in Munich. Very carefull arrangement of the artefacts enhances spectators experience.
super pretty museum with an amazing collection of art. loved the visit, and the cafe inside is super pretty as well!
The only antique statue museum in the world. Generous halls of whitewashed bricks and enormous windows. All antique epochs are shown here. A delightful cafe is in the courtyard.
Top notch museum with beautiful, ancient sculptures. Huge space creates the expirience even more enjoyable. Very nice and helpful crew works there. In the patio there is located a cafe spot. Place worth recomending! Going to go again one day for sure.. Read more »!
Charming, lovely, outstanding, never been done before, well organized.

A nice collection of Roman and Greek sculptures, enriched by modern replicas. The museum doesn't accept credit cards and you can only buy your tickets using cash. The texts are mostly in both German end English.
Very nice and very well put together exhibition. Could follow it historically. Thumbs up for all the background work!
Sculptures from the temple of Aphaion in Aigina island are collected in the museum

- Compared to other museums in Munich, it is a small one.
- I expect descriptions of artifacts near them. They put info tablets in every room to pick up and read. It was not Corona-friendly.
After ~3 years been closed for renovations the Glypthotek has finally reopened for the public. Really beautiful place with a great constellation allowing you to walk amongst statues. Some newer than the others but overall a great experience

Grea exhibition, it's an ideal place to just relax while enjoying some classic sculptures and the beauty of art
Currently the only covid-19 requirement it's to cover you mouth all the time in the building.
Very nice place to visit and for sketching as well
Beautiful old museum.
Long story of Bavarian
Out of several Land Marks in Munich, nice view during city tour
Absolutely great, yes, but still closed for renovation until October 13, 2020.
Great sculpture museum. The layout is very beautiful as well as the artwork itself
Closed until October 2020. Sister museum is okay if you like amphora and other pottery. Only 1 euro on Sundays.
I can't understand how the works of the museum are being handled. There is a lack of information both in the website and in the museum itself. We were informed by workers.
We wanted to visit this Museum to enjoy fine ancient art. But unfortunately, one of the two buildings is being refurbished and it is closed. It turns out that the one that is closed is the one with the main ancient sculpture exhibits!. So I do not fe..
